What are middle names for?

The practice of giving middle names started with the Romans. Almost all Romans were known by three names: the praenomen, which was a personal name; the nomen, which was a family name; and the cognomen, which signified the branch of the family you belonged to. The greater the number of names you possessed, the more esteemed you were among your peers.

In the 1700s, this habit of numerous names migrated to Western civilizations, where it is still used today. Aristocrats would give their children lengthy names in order to demonstrate their high social status. When it comes to Spanish and Arabic traditions, parents would give their children paternal or maternal names from past generations in order to be able to maintain track of the child’s genealogy. Today this practice has continued as we often given children family names to honor loved ones or keep family names alive.
