As a result, people often choose names based on their meanings, believing that the meaning of the child’s name may reflect the nature of the child or influence the child later on.

What are middle names for?

The Romans were the first people to adopt the practice of bestowing middle names. In ancient Rome, almost everyone was recognized by three names: the praenomen, which served as a personal name; the nomen, which served as a family name; and the cognomen, which identified which branch of the family you belonged to. The higher the number of names you had under your belt, the more well regarded you were among your contemporaries.

This practice of using a large number of names spread to Western societies in the 1700s, where it is still used today. When it came to giving their children long names, aristocratic families did so to display their high social standing. The habit of giving children paternal or maternal names from previous generations is common in Spanish and Arabic cultures, and it allows parents to trace their children’s history. Today, we continue this tradition by giving children family names in order to remember loved ones or to keep family names alive in perpetuity.
