i use mine at work. can't remember why i started, but i do it automatically now.
only used on forms/official documents.
But I hardly ever use it. Don't even think it's on my driving licence. It's on my debit card, bizarrely though.
I have a theory that 90%+ of male middle names are either James, John, their dad's name or their granddad's name.
This this post if the above applies to you.
My brother's middle name is James
that is a tradition in the ol' sheeldz home
got my dads name as my middle name. Bit of a tradition though I don't think my first name would make a good middle name.
My first name is my dad's middle name
but that's not my dad's actual name, so this doesn't apply.
Just cos there's quite a few "Paul Hawkins" about and it makes me more googleable.
Hopefully one day the secrecy will pay off.
Reminds me of my dad and my name is unique without it anyway (googling it returns papers I'm on, my work, and various social network gubbins as the only relevant results).
didn't correct him
This made me do a splutter laugh
It's mostly older people though.
Use it for official things only (Driving licence, Passport, bank accounts, jobs)
The first one is rubbish so I don't use it, but because its my first middle name it gets used on official stuff and my second one gets pushed aside.
Which I like to pronounce all sassy like 'mmmm-hmmmm'
Never use mine. It is my Dad's middle name
no I don't really ever use it.
Also got both my parents' surnames but only use my dad's.
I don't use it though, it's my dads first name. It was quite confusing at university because the name everyone calls me, including my mother, is actually an abbreviation, so lecturers were always trying to call me by my full name and getting confused.
I use the first middle one together with my first name for online stuff sometimes, but the second one is only on official forms.
my mum uses her middle as her first.
IN BEFORE MY MUM USES ETC ETC.
I'm convinced they only called me that because of the initials.
Don't use it...
It was supposed to be my first name but my mum didn't want me to sound stupid what with my initials being DD.
I don't use it.
A certain member of the Ramones was the only person in history to successfully be known as Dee Dee.
I'm in too deep now though.
(fair enough Craig isnt that much better but it is a bit)
I tend not to for obvious reasons
Might start referring to myself as Andrew K Vine coz that sounds badass
Supposed to be 'Edmund' (my dad's middle name, his dad's middle name, etc.), but my mum put it down on my birth certificate as 'Edward', and it's stayed that way ever since. Should probably get round to changing it someday.
My girlfriend doesn't have one. Assumed she was lying and it was just something really embarrassing at first, but her passport corroborates her claim.
It has no other significance, so don't know why he chose to pass it on, especially in such a passive way. I use it for official things which require me to state my middle name.
mine's reza. it's got a z in it! so rad.
'Charles Augustine' for fuck's sake. Charles is fine, but Augustine?! My dad wanted my first name to be Valentine though so in a way I got off lightly.
Wish my mum had held in 6 more hours, because she never they called me Grant
Maybe I should cos my first name is confusing.
because its christy, ffs
I include it in application forms etc.
and he was a prize cunt, so I usually leave it off official documents. Haha! take that, dead-for-nearly-twenty-years grandad.
Only get used on official documents. Means that my initials spell A SOD though, which is quite clearly hilarious!
I use it as a first name for some stuff. I like it but most people can't pronounce it.
It can be a boys and girls name. And begins with V. who want's to guess.
