It's the "Middle" of the Week!

I have absolutely no idea where some of these "days" come from, but here we are at "Middle Name Pride Day." At our house, we have: David, Michelle (there are actually 2 Michelle's), Joele and Thor (yup, even Harley has a middle name).

Did you know that in most countries, except North America, people do not have "middle names" but have what are considered second or third "given names." In some countries, "middle names" are only used for names that were originally last names (like maiden names). Others use their "middle name" as their "first name" which totally confuses me - why not just name them that? But that's just me and my confused state of mind.

What are the middle names in your house?
