Today at school I realized something. Girls generally have one of two middle names; Anne/Ann or Marie. How uncreative is that? I mean, literally EVERYONE I asked either had one of those two middle names or were closely related to someone who had one.

The most popular for guys is Michael, apparently.

So what's your middle name? Do you find it embarrassing? Have you ever noticed this trend before?

I like my middle name, even though it IS Marie, like everyone else.

I have an interesting middle name! Unfortunately, people say it wrong (like guy announcing at my graduation... even after I corrected him). It's Karii (pronounced Kuh-ree). If it weren't for the fact that people here can't seem to wrap their heads around weird names, I wish it were my first name!

Mine is Ellen. I am half Vietnamese and half Iranian and the best my parents could come up with was Brittany Ellen. Creative, I know..

Mine is Leigh (as is my mom's). I don't ever really use it for anything, but I guess I like it okay.

My middle name is Warren. I'm proud to have a nerdy middle name that people like to use to make jokes about me and rabbits in compromising positions. My sisters' middle names are Jan and Mary. My mother's middle name is Lynch. Ouch.

My middle name is Elliott, it's my mother's maiden name.  I think people don't really use middle names for much, so that probably explains the lack of creativity.  As a side note, one of my friends told me that in his grandmother's Irish Catholic family, all five girls were named Mary and four of them went by their middle name

Mine is Keya. I go by that, so...Kira is really a penname. Anyone get it? Oh, for heaven's sake, why am I so awkward?

I actually go by my middle name thanks to my mom. It's Julianne. My first name is Kristen. It's kind of weird when I'm called Kristen. The trend is recurring, and the more I see it the more I question it.

The other day I had this conversation with my friend:

Thai friend: Why do you have a middle name? (in Thailand people don't have nicknames)

Me: I don't know. My mom chose it.

Thai friend: Oh. When do you use it?

Me: I don't.

Which seriously makes me question...WHY DO WE USE MIDDLE NAMES? They aren't really important for "official" things, we never use them, and they're usually just something our parents picked out because they had to.

Anyways, mine is Nicole.

I don't have a middle name...

Neither do I ....when I was little I used to feel so jealous of people who had middle names, believe my first born will have at least one middle name lol

I have neither of those but my sister has one as a middle name and the other (in a different form) as a first name. So I guess on average we each have one?

Everyone in my dad's side of the family and most of my immediate family has two middle names (generally one chosen by the mother and the other chosen by the father) so mine are Louise and Tatiana. Louise is after a relative who lived to be 107 and Tatiana is after a character in an opera. But then again my first name is Katherine which is one of the most common spellings of a fairly common name. And being that I grew up going by Katie, I've met a ton of people with the same first name. I used to want to change it and go my one of my middle names, but now I kind of like it because it means that people rarely forget my name because they generally know at least one person in their family or friend group with the same name. One of my half-brother's middle name is Michael as is one of my dad's (coincidentally since my mother didn't know my dad when he was born). And my mom's middle name was Ann. I love my middle names even if it makes my full name ridiculously long. However, I think that Ann/Anne and Marie are pretty names.
