What are middle names for?

It is believed that the Romans were the first civilization to adopt the practice of giving middle names, as documented in historical texts. In ancient Rome, a person’s identity was essentially established by three names: the praenomen, which served as a personal name; the nomen, which served as a family name; and the cognomen, which served as a distinguishing mark for which branch of the family you belonged, among other things. According to your colleagues, the higher number of names that were called out for you, the more highly respected you were in their eyes.

This practice of taking a large number of names first began to spread to Western nations in the 1700s. It is still prevalent in different regions of the world today. To reflect their high social status in society, aristocratic families sought to give their children  lots of middle names, as a sign of their status in society.

In the Spanish and Arabic cultures, it is customary tradition to give children paternal or maternal names that have been passed down from previous generations, allowing parents to trace their children’s genealogy back to their ancestors. With the passage of time, the practice of naming children after deceased family members is carried on, and it is done so in order to ensure that family names are passed down down the generations.
