    I like it, I have two nephews the oldest one has the dads name as his middle name and the younger one doesn't. It's a big thing to them and I wish they gave the dads name to both of the boys. The little one thinks he's not as special with out his dad's name.
    I have my mums middle name and I like it.
    If I have two girls they will both have my name as their middle name

    H already gave DSS that as a middle name.
    He refuses to use DSD's middle name again, so I refuse to use DSS's.
    I don't like the name anyway.

    It's a tradition for all the first born son's on my husband's side to have the same middle name (so grandpa, dad, son). I didn't want to do it as I think it's a boring name but caved as it meant a lot to him and FIL. At least it was simple so it went with any first name choice! If we have another daughter we'll give her the same middle name as our Dd that was stillborn but I know that's a bit of a different situation. I used to work for a family where all the children have the mom's surname as their middle (like Sonja mentioned). It's a name that is also a 'first name' so it works fine and nobody seems to care.

    My DP thinks the same, I am the one who is uncertain. I think we will most likely use the same middle name though, it is lovely and flows well.

    I have the same middle name as my sister, mum, poppy, great grandmother and so on back for generations. My DD due in Oct will have the same middle name and we'd use it for future kids too. I love the tradition!

    Well I have the same middle name as my mum, which actually ended up being her younger sisters first name!

    My DD and I have the same middle name
    As for siblings sharing a middle name, it's not such a weird thing at all, especially when names have traditional meaning and are carried on through generations. If you had 2 children with the same first name I'd think it strange, but you could get away with middle names.

    Not weird at all IMO.

    DD1 has my grandmothers middle name and DD2 has my middle name.
