My middle name is very unusal, and i could lose my anonymity saying it… but what the heck!
My first name is a very classic name, but my middle name is Ceridwen, pronounced “care-rid-wen”. It used to throw me off when I was little, cause everyone else had classic middles names like Ann, or Beth, Jane etc. As an adult I love it. The story behind it is I was a week overdue to be born, and originally I was to be named “Ceridwen (classic name) (Last Name)” and my parents when asked what I would be named would get a “what??” Reaction, so instead of having a “what?” first name, they switched it around and gave me a “what?” middle name…
if that makes sence lol

I was given 2 middle names, after both my grandmother’s names. One is very common and classic, the other is a very “old lady” sounding name.
I got teased at school when kids found out, but I really didn’t let it bother me.
Now, I combine the two names, which makes for a really awesome middle name, and just tell everyone that is my one middle name.

My middle name is unusual (old family surname passed down from grandmother and mother), and is also quite pretty-sounding. I love it 🙂

I think middle names are the perfect place to use strange or unique names. Though for the record, I don’t think Harvey is strange at all. It reminds me of Harvey from Sabrina the Teenage Witch… a goofy but sweet guy.

My entire name is not common at all, but my middle name is really different! (My mother’s maiden name) When I was younger I wished I had a ‘normal’ middle name, so I could use it instead of my first name – which I didn’t always like when I was younger…but now? My name is a part of who I am, and I like having something unique. I’m debating turning my maiden name into my middle name, or adding it to my middle name…either way my name is going to be a mouthful! Guess I’m just lucky my parents didn’t have the current trend of using a maiden name as a first name!
By The Way I think Harvey as a middle name would be really cute! Not weird IMO at all.

I honestly don’t pay much attention to middle names. I think the only time it will even come up/be recognized is when you are telling people the baby name/the baby is born. I don’t know many people who, in their adult life, even use their middle name. I just starting using my middle initial now for the first time ever because after getting married I went from being the only person on this planet with my surname, to having probably one of the top 10 most common ones in n. america.
So use whatever you want 🙂 I always viewed middle names as a more personal thing anyway. Often used to honor people etc.
