    Harriets middle name is Sarah

    after me and also OH's mum is called sarah and all the way down his family and some of his sisters they all have sarah in their name, so it kinda fitted.

    Also we couldnt pick another middle name anyway haha :)

    Phoebes was Alexandra - because my grandads and dads middle name is alexander

    we chose Alexander as a first name after his sister and grandads but his middle name is Matthew which is his uncles middle name.

    Elisha's middle name is Faye. I chose that because it sounded nice with her first name.

    This baby will have the middle name Carol after my mum who died of breast cancer nearly 4 years ago or Antony after my younger brother who died 3 years ago.
    I agree that middle names are a nice way of honouring someone close to you and keeping their name alive in your life.

    Our kids will probably have two middle names as it is the tradition in Belgium and France. It's either gonna be the godparents' names or the grandparents' name, we haven't discussed that yet.

    Middle names are very rarely used over here. It's very different from the US/Uk where it seems you almost use middle names on a daily basis.

    its tradition in Marks family for the first boy to have the dads name as its middle name, so a boy would have been Finlay Mark.

    we just carried on that way and went for my name as her middle name, so she is Chloe Amy

    Joni-Mai has Maria for her middle name... I don't know why my OH chose Maria, the only thing I can think of is his life long endurance of "The Sound of Music" brainwashing him into it... MIL is a massive Julie Andrews fanatic so I guess I have her to blame really?

    Joni-Mai was named after my nan and aunt who were both Joan but were both at some point in their lives called Joni, both of whom passed away and were very special to me. My other nan thinks Mai was in honour of her (even though I didn't know her middle name was May...) So we go along with that too.

    Richard - his Great-grandfather, Grandfather and Step-Grandfather are all Richard. As much as I don't like the name, I had to give in to my DH.

    Grace, thanks to BnB lol. I couldn't think of anything that went with Helena. I have an awesome Great Aunt Grace, and one of my fav songs is The Grace by NWL, so it worked.

    Otherwise I would have went with no middle name.

    I like Grace a lot. I saw it with Olivia in a newsletter and fell in love with Olivia Grace for a girl. So pretty.

    Both my OH and I have two middle names, as does Claire:

    Laura - OH's best friend, who passed away 2 years ago
    Ivie - One of my middle names.

    We each picked one. :)
