    my three all have middle names starting with the same initial - but that's different to a whole name.

    I do have a friend who gave her two sons a 'version' of their dad's first name as their middle name.

    eg; luke - luca - lucas

    I wouldn't do it personally but I don't mind it. I used to know someone who did it but her daughters had different surnames so it was a bit different to same middle and last name.

    What about the same initial? My ds's and dd's middle names start with the same letter and my dd has the same middle name as me & my MIL. Cross-generational I don't have an issue, but siblings already share a surname, why share a middle name?

    We'll be doing this. All the kids will have my surname as their middle name.

    Not a fan. I see first and middle names as being individualistic.

    My friend has given all her DS the same middle name as their father and the grandfathers. She was happy to follow traditions and considered a second middle name but didn't because the first/middle/surname is long enough without adding more.

    Mum and her sisters all have 'Mary' as a middle name and the brothers all have 'Joseph'.

    I think if it is a name of family significance then it doesn't seem fair to let the second child miss out, and therefore I see reasoning for using the same middle name.

    Personally it is not something I would do, but I wasn't overly interested in family significance when choosing middle names.
