Middle Name Pride Day

This week is International Celebrate Your Name Week. Today, March 10, is Middle Name Pride Day. Today I am supposed to share my middle name with three people who don't already know it.

My middle name is.....

That's right. I do not have a middle name. Of course, no one at school ever believed that. They figured that I must have had a really awful middle name and just didn't want to share it with them. My mother never gave me nor my little sister a middle name because she figured when we got married our maiden name would become our middle name.

I understand her logical completely. It is sound. However, it didn't help me to avoid getting picked on over my middle name or, rather, lack thereof.

I more than made up for my lack of a middle name with our daughters. Our two surviving daughters have a first name, two middle names, and their surname, for a total of four names.

  1. My mom never had a middle name either. Neither did her younger sister. There was a family of 5 and they were the only two without middle names. Crazy!!

    1. I wonder if your grandma had the same logic that my mama had, that they'd get a middle name when they got married? Our brothers and both parents had middle names. How did your mama and aunt feel about not having a middle name?

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed weekend. :)

  2. My father didn't have a middle name. And the military didn't make him take one like they did his brother. His brother's name was Hightower. Daddy's name was Clayon. No T. Not Clayton, CLAYON.

    1. Why did the military make his brother take a middle name? I think it is interesting that your daddy's name is Clayon instead of Clayton. I've never seen that name before. It is unique. :)
