That is interesting. I have never heard of kids taking their mothers maiden name as their middle as well. But, if you guys like it and it works for you guys, awesome!

My husband has his mother’s maiden name as his middle name. It’s nearly a fairly common boys first name though (Evans), and we’re debating naming our son Evan to carry it on (and because we love it).

@Mrs Sarah McK: Evan is my #1 boy name! 

But I have talked to fi about the middle name thing and he thought I was crazy lol He would rather me just have 2 last names.

I’ve heard of this and I think it’s a good idea, depending on the maiden name. πŸ˜‰ I wouldn’t want to give my kid a super awkward middle name, but my maiden is actually a pretty common boys first name, so the more I think about it, the more I like the idea of giving it to a son as a middle name.

I think this is a great idea! Except my last name would probably sound odd as a middle name so I don’t think that willl happen for me. Awesome that it works for you though πŸ™‚

Everyone in my family has the same middle name.  Its from a maiden name a few generations ago.

I just wanted to add my husband also has his mother’s maiden name. It’s not a boys name, but it’s short. My sister has my grandmother’s maiden name for her middle name: “Bond.” As a child she always introduced herself as Bond.. [first name] Bond [last name]

I did the same name change, but it wouldn’t be able to be carried on. I think if its something that would sound good, its a cool idea. I actually hadn’t heard of that before

one of my good friends growing up’s family did this – her mother’s maiden name was “Lee”, though, so it wasn’t too uncommon a middle name for all the kids. I did think it was strange as a kid that my friend and her siblings all had the same middle name, though.

My middle name is a historic surname that has been passed on to one female in each generation. It’s pretty special as well as unique.

People do this a lot where I’m from.  It’s quite common with my friends back home.

My dad has his mother’s maiden name as his middle name, and gave my oldest brother the same middle name. I’m considering passing it on to at least one of our children as well. Love this idea!
