If everyone went by their middle names?

Since a good portion of people have family names from previous generations as their middles, it might be fun to see how different families would be if we went by middle names!

My family is really: [name]Dave[/name], [name]Val[/name], [name]Alice[/name], [name]Charlie[/name], [name]Sarah[/name].

Middle name family: [name]William[/name], [name]Grace[/name], [name]Grace[/name] [name]Jr[/name]., [name]David[/name] & [name]Jean[/name].

I definitely prefer my actual families names!
I do like the name [name]Jean[/name] though, but for me [name]Sarah[/name] fits better!
What about you?

My family is really: Parents: [name]Christiaan[/name], [name]Helena[/name]
Children: [name]Marguerite[/name], [name]Annabel[/name], [name]Henry[/name]

Middle name family: Parents: [name]Frederik[/name], [name]Florentina[/name] (Dutch version of [name]Florence[/name])
Children: [name]Jane[/name], [name]Josephine[/name], [name]Leopold[/name].

My parents [name]Christiaan[/name] and [name]Helena[/name] wanted to give us names that could be pronounced properly in Dutch and in English (we live in The Netherlands). I think they chose great names! :smiley:

If everyone went by their middle names I think there’d be a lot of people named [name]Rose[/name], [name]Grace[/name] and [name]James[/name]! Lol.

My family’s first names: [name]David[/name], [name]Sabrina[/name], [name]Lisa[/name] [name]Paige[/name] and [name]Robin[/name].

If we went by middles: [name]Jay[/name], [name]Caryn[/name], [name]Paige[/name] and [name]Polly[/name].

I think we’d all be good with our middle names, though I’m not sure my sister would like being named [name]Polly[/name] :slight_smile:

My middle name is [name]Susan[/name]. But I wish it were [name]Elizabeth[/name]. Then my first name could be [name]Susan[/name].

My parents would be [name]Earl[/name] and [name]Ann[/name]. My brother and I would be Jenness and [name]Rowe[/name]. I think we’re better off as [name]William[/name] and [name]Katherine[/name], [name]Lyndsay[/name] and [name]Jeffrey[/name]!

My husband would be [name]Richard[/name] and my son would be [name]David[/name]! I’ll definitely stick with [name]Chris[/name] and [name]Dash[/name]!

My nieces and nephews would become [name]Victoria[/name], [name]Lafayette[/name], [name]Elaine[/name], [name]Lynn[/name], [name]Audrey[/name] and [name]Francis[/name]. [name]Victoria[/name], [name]Audrey[/name] and [name]Francis[/name] are siblings, I think that would be a really nice set! Their first names are [name]Dawn[/name], [name]Kaelyn[/name] and [name]Cole[/name].

My grandparents would be [name]Rowe[/name] and [name]Rose[/name] instead of [name]Bob[/name] and [name]Ann[/name].

My in-laws would be [name]John[/name] and [name]Elaine[/name] instead of [name]David[/name] and Creety. Their kids would be [name]Marie[/name], [name]David[/name] and [name]Richard[/name]. My mom’s siblings would be Jenness (boy), [name]Nick[/name], [name]Rowe[/name] and [name]Ann[/name]. My dads would be [name]Chris[/name] (girl), [name]Jay[/name] (girl), [name]Earl[/name] and —, their firsts are [name]Nancy[/name], [name]Laura[/name], [name]William[/name] and [name]Julianne[/name] (no middle name).

That’s fun!

That could be confusing since my twin sister and I share the same middle name!

Instead of [name]Peggi[/name], [name]Bob[/name], [name]Ashley[/name], [name]Alexis[/name], [name]Evan[/name], [name]Danny[/name], [name]Maggie[/name], and [name]Stephanie[/name] we would be [name]Elizabeth[/name], [name]Charles[/name], [name]Vaughn[/name], [name]Vaughn[/name], [name]Michael[/name], [name]Robert[/name], [name]Cara[/name], and [name]Ann[/name]. With the exception of my and [name]Ashley[/name]'s middle names, it’s actually a nice set, lol.

Haha, lots of people I know would have the same names, then.

I’d be [name]Zachary[/name] (which I prefer over my real first name, [name]Jay[/name]). My partner would be [name]Michael[/name] (which I know he’d prefer over his name, [name]Derrick[/name]). Our children would be [name]Caroline[/name] [name]Rose[/name], [name]Sebastian[/name] [name]Hart[/name], and [name]Sylvie[/name] [name]Alexis[/name]…they’re really [name]Camille[/name], [name]Zachary[/name], and [name]Laura[/name]. I like their actual first names more. :stuck_out_tongue:

The only other interesting ones I can think of are my siblings. My brother would be [name]Benjamin[/name], and my sisters would be [name]Renee[/name] and [name]Jane[/name]. They’re really [name]Reeve[/name], [name]Evelyn[/name], and [name]Tara[/name].

I think everyone else I know would be [name]Rose[/name], [name]Elizabeth[/name], [name]Marie[/name], or [name]John[/name], lol.

I’d be [name]Mariska[/name]. I love my middle name, but I think for me it works better in the middle. I’ve always been [name]Jen[/name], and like that on paper [name]Jen[/name] blends in pretty well. I already tend to stand out for various reasons and I’m not sure if I could deal with my name being another one (though people who [name]DO[/name] learn my middle name always seem to think it suits me…).

I cannot decide for the life of me whether or not to pass it on to a future daughter in the first OR middle position. We’re still a couple years off from making that decision though.

If we went by our middle names:

My husband and I would be:
[name]Bruce[/name] and [name]Jane[/name] / Kids: [name]Glen[/name], [name]Austin[/name], and [name]Jane[/name].
My brother-in-law and twin sister would be:
[name]Alan[/name] and [name]Claire[/name] / Kids: [name]Alan[/name], [name]Claire[/name], and [name]Brian[/name].

Coincidentally, all our middle names end in either the letter E or N, and most end with the N sound.

Dad and Mom: [name]Philip[/name] ([name]Flip[/name]) and Shery

Kids: [name]Emma[/name], [name]Will[/name], [name]Julianna[/name]

Middle Names Exchange: [name]Maynard[/name] (I’m pretty sure he is glad about that!) and … (mom has no middle name)

[name]Katherine[/name] (I would go by Kick!), [name]Sheppard[/name] (he actually goes by this sometimes, “[name]Shep[/name]”), and [name]Maire[/name] (Irish version of [name]Marie[/name])

My family is really:
Parents: [name]Janet[/name] and [name]Christopher[/name]
My brother and I: [name]Freya[/name] and [name]Matthew[/name]

Middles: [name]Christine[/name] and Ringstrom (family name)
[name]Maureen[/name] and [name]Liam[/name].

I much prefer our real names, although I do like [name]Liam[/name]. If I was [name]Maureen[/name], I would go by [name]Mo[/name] or Momo!

This is interesting. I really liked reading everyone’s respond. However, in my family it would be a disaster. The names would be [name]Paul[/name], [name]Marie[/name], [name]Marie[/name], & [name]Marie[/name]. My parents were not very original.

My family: Parents: [name]James[/name] & [name]Marsha[/name], Brother: [name]Corey[/name]
Middle Name Family: Parents: [name]Edward[/name] & [name]Lynn[/name], Brother: [name]Christopher[/name]
(side note: [name]Corey[/name] is actually my brother’s middle name, so for the middle name family i used [name]Christopher[/name], which is actually his first name)

My Family: My Hubby: Chanler, Me:[name]Kelly[/name], our daughter: [name]Rylee[/name]
My middle name family: Hubby: [name]Duvall[/name], Me: [name]Marie[/name], our Daughter: [name]Dakota[/name]

We’d be [name]Elizabeth[/name], [name]Michael[/name], [name]Jean[/name], [name]Michael[/name], [name]Kent[/name], [name]Jane[/name], & [name]Joseph[/name], with [name]Andrew[/name], [name]Ann[/name], [name]James[/name], [name]Amber[/name], & [name]Aaron[/name].

My parents are [name]Jeanne[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] & [name]David[/name] [name]Michael[/name], Sr.
My siblings & I are [name]Melissa[/name] [name]Jean[/name], [name]David[/name] [name]Michael[/name], [name]Jr[/name], [name]Michelle[/name] [name]Kent[/name], [name]Jessica[/name] [name]Jane[/name], & [name]Joshua[/name] [name]Joseph[/name].
My nieces & nephews are [name]Justin[/name] [name]Andrew[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Ann[/name], [name]Ethan[/name] [name]James[/name], [name]Kayleigh[/name] [name]Amber[/name], & [name]Nicholas[/name] [name]Aaron[/name].

This is cool :smiley:

My parents would go from [name]Gregory[/name] & [name]Judy[/name] to [name]Joseph[/name] & [name]Carol[/name], My Dad would like it but my Mum wouldn’t she would rather stay [name]Jude[/name].
My siblings and i would go from [name]Emma[/name] (me), [name]Daniel[/name], [name]Melissa[/name] & [name]Jordan[/name] to [name]Dianne[/name], [name]Leon[/name], [name]Jessie[/name] & [name]Francis[/name]. Not to bad really :smiley:

Ha! My husband and I would be [name]Lee[/name] and [name]Lynn[/name], and our daughter would be [name]Rose[/name]!

My family would be

[name]Ann[/name], [name]Cleveland[/name], [name]Willard[/name], [name]Ann[/name], [name]Michele[/name], [name]Robert[/name], [name]Marilyn[/name], [name]Carol[/name], [name]Gale[/name], [name]Gray[/name](a girl), Waine (a girl, [name]Gray[/name]'s daughter)

I would be [name]Carolina[/name], I think I, my grandfather [name]Willard[/name] and my father [name]Robert[/name] have the best new name!

But I win :wink: well, my mum does, for giving me my spectacular name!

My family:

Husband and I: [name]Jack[/name] and [name]Sarah[/name]

Middle Name us: [name]Mark[/name] and [name]Joann[/name]
