What are middle names for?

Not everyone has a middle name, and indeed many people have multiple middle names. I have three, and they were all named after relatives that my parents cared about dearly. The story behind my middle names matters and I love the fact my middle names represent both my grandmothers and my mother. My own children all have middle names named after their relatives.

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, Sydney Pia could become SP! 

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.
