Often, people use a middle name as the forename.
Every other generation is called by their middle name to avoid confusion at family gatherings.
Sometimes when family members share the same first name, a different middle name is chosen to differentiate father from son, uncle from nephew and so on.
People who use their middle name as their first name many times abbreviate their first name to an initial.
As you decide on a name for your child, give as much thought and weight to the middle name as you do to the first name.
