What are middle names for?

It has traditionally been the goal of middle names to honor a relative or another person, notably a godparent, or even a completely unrelated person, such as a significant figure in the community or nation.

The history of middle names actually dates back to Roman times, when Roman men had a cognomen, or middle name, which indicated which branch of the family they were.

Today, they have evolved more to be about trying out new, fun names, or just putting in a name you love.
