What are middle names for?

Your daughter’s middle name is one that she will keep with her for the rest of her life, which is a wonderful thing.

Of course, middle names aren’t absolutely necessary in terms of legal requirements, but they do add a little something extra to the overall flavor of our names. And, to be completely honest, they do come in helpful every now and then.

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, Heather May could become Hem! 

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.
