While there is always a lot of talk about what names are in and which ones are out, it’s always the middle name that tends to become forgotten after the baby’s sixth week of their life or so, right? I mean, let’s face it, the only time we use (or even remember) middle names are when we are sending out our baby’s birth announcements or when they nearly completely destroyed the living room carpet with paint that was supposed to be washable (“JACK JONATHAN!”).
Well, sometimes it’s a good thing when we forget about our middle names, especially when they can be more embarrassing as you get older in life. Hugh Grant’s parents must have had one heck of a sense of humor when they gave him the middle name Mungo (Hugh Mungo… get it?) while Elton John’s mother and father must have known that he was destined for greatness when they gave him the middle name of Hercules (how can you go wrong with that?). And then there are people like me who don’t have a middle name at all (my mom would use to tell me that she though “Jo” and “Anna” was enough for a name).
