What are middle names for?
Giving a child a middle name is a tradition that dates back to the medieval era. Back then, people would give their children multiple names in order to confuse evil spirits. They would also use middle names in order to honor important people in their lives.
Middle names are still given today for these reasons and many others. Some parents choose to give their children middle names based on names they like.
Other parents choose middle names because they have a special meaning to them. Whatever the reason, it is clear that there are many benefits to giving your child a middle name.
Often people can make the middle name a nickname later on or even you can put the initials together to form a new name, for example, Elliot James could become EJ!
Research has also indicated that having middle names improves people’s chances of getting a better job in the future!
According to a study published in the European Journal of Social Psychology, people who have middle names are believed to have a high social position and to be intellectually superior.
