My boys both have two middle names. Their first middle names are different, but their second middle names are the same - their second middle names are both my surname, since we decided not to hyphenate their last name. So, no, I suppose I don't think it's weird that they would both have the same middle name, but I'm not sure I would have done it if we hadn't decided to use my last name in this way.

I think it's weird... but my in laws (grandmother, mother in law, her sister, and my sister in law) all have the same middle name, which happens to be my middle name... I think they hold a grudge that i didn't pass along the 'family middle name' to our daughter... I want her to have individuality though.. and I really dislike my/their middle name.

I personally would give them different names. I often call my children by their full name (first and middle) so would never choose the same middle name x

Two of my boys have the same middle name, and a third who actually doesnt have a middle name has the name added to him when the kids are calling him For me its not a problem at all and in fact will give them an extra connection to each other in older life, like sharing a birthday, something extra special for them

My mom, older sister and I all have the same middle name and I always hated it lol. I feel like everyone else has history and character to their middle name and my mom just wanted us to be like her. if she could have gotten away with it, I imagine she would have named both of us Jr. ha ha ha!
My sister is also not a fan of our middle names and my mother tried to push the passing of our middle name on to my niece as well. Can not wait for her to push it on me when I have kids! And my brother has a full on family name, first name shared with our great, great Grandfather and his middle name shared with our great great great Grandfather. I always thought that was pretty cool.

My first name is Emma, (most common name ever) and my middle name is Leigh. and because of this, everyone in the world thinks my name is Emmalee. It sucks and I get into arguments over it often. So, not only to I have one of the most popular girls names in history, I also have a lame, compound middle name to go along with.

Ultimately, who cares what everyone else thinks if it feels good to you, thats all that matters.
