What's your middle name? :)

What would you prefer it to be?

I'll keep track and see what the most common middle name among us is. I"m curious.

My middle name is Mary. Good ole Mary. ^___~ One of the more common ones, the same as my mom and her mom. *grin* I rather like the way it goes with my name though. ^__^

That's cool. :) I like it when names pass through families.

Jo! My middle name is Jo. Be jealous that my first and middle name combined is shorter than most first names alone. :D

Ann. Wouldn't change it. I share the middle name with my Grandmother (She is Mary Ann, and I am Chrystin Ann.), and it flows nicely with my first name.

If I could pick a new one tho...I have always loved my mothers middle name (Jean) but would totally need a new first name to match it!

Lynn.
My father apparently spent time in China before I was born. (He was in the Army). They were going to name me Su Lin, but I guess the fact that I came out with masses of bright red hair made them decide to Angelicize it to Sue Lynn. I was told that it meant "A little bit of something very precious," but I think someone mistranslated. It means "a little bit of something very cute."

Noticing all the J's above - my mother's middle name started with a J, as does my daughter's, (being the same). Two of my son's first names start with a J. Two have middle names starting with J. (With three sons, that means my firstborn has both names - and our last name - starting with J, making his initials JJJ. My husband's idea, btw.

That's sweet! :)

I thought Lynn had to do with water?

And there's crazy amounts of J's in names. It's really predominant as names go I think.

My middle name: Elizabeth.

What would I like it to be? I don't know; there are so many names I like! Shiri, Aria, Rhiannon, Brigid, Andromeda . . . and so many more. I'll be interested in finding out which are the most common middle names in this group!

Lee is my middle name.

I'm not sure what I'd prefer it to be...I'm fine w/ my middle name, really, I just don't like how it sounds between my first and last names...I'd rather just change those.

Rose Ann

Only my mom gets to call me "Rosie". (My grandparents were allowed, but they are all passed on now.) All others die!

The Rose came from a lady in my grandparents' neighborhood who called all children "Rosie"--gender didn't matter. Everyone was "Rosie"!

I hated my middle names in junior high because "Roseanne" was so popular on TV. I'd get the "ROOSEEANNNNE" whenever people found out. Boo!

Awww. Rose Anne is pretty though. It's a lovely name, even if Roseanne Bah now is a connotation people put to it.

My middle name is for my maternal grandfather, John. My mom just stuck an "ette" on the end to make it sound more girly - so, "Johnette." What would I like it to be? Anything but Johnette...
