A middle name allows you to keep your family’s or other important names alive. To be honest, family is extremely essential. Every time a new member of the family is born, family members always appear to have the best ideas for the “ideal” names for them. Fortunately, as parents, you have the opportunity to put an end to a family dispute or to memorialize a valued family member by naming your child’s middle name after them.
