What are middle names for?

You are not required to have a middle name, according to the law. What matters most is that it’s a personal preference. Because practically everyone these days appears to have a middle name, it is reasonable to assume that the vast majority of people want to give their children names that are at least three words long.

A middle name allows you to keep even more of your family’s or other significant names. When you give your child a middle name, you have the option to celebrate various members of your family inside the same name. Just make sure that all of the names are consistent and flow well together!

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, Sarah Arianna could become Sana! 

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.
