Naming Traditions

In my family all of us girls have the middle name [name]Kay[/name] and all of the boys have the middle name [name]Michael[/name]. This has gone on for ( and i’m not joking) 7 generations. When i had my first son [name]Emerson[/name] i gave him the middle name [name]Josiah[/name]. When i had my daughter [name]Evelyn[/name], her middle name became [name]Skye[/name]. For all 10 of my children i have given them middle names that my husband and I like and have ignored our family tradition. My entire family was outraged. they couldn’t believe i didn’t follow the tradition. What are your feelings on traditions?
