  1. Wow!! Thank you so much! This is the first blog award I’ve ever received. You truly made my week. =)
    I will find time to pass on this good karma and be sure to give you a shout!

  2. Well done! No middle name? My husband and every generation before him also have no middle names. I changed it up a little and gave our kids two!!

    • I wonder how unusual it is not to have one and whether it’s a cultural thing or just a preference? Certainly is seems like most people I know have one or sometimes two middle names. My parents said they had enough trouble picking one name let alone two 🙂

  3. I actually googled it last night, it’s fascinating! I am of English/Scotish descent but growing up it was definitely the exception – very unusual for both my sets of grandparents to buck the trend.
