    The tradition in our family dating back four generations is for all boys to have same middle name. So brothers and nephews etc all have the same.

    I gave my DD the same middle name as my mum and sister's middle name, mainly because it goes well with her first name. I have a different middle name to them. I think it's a nice thing to do.

    Not me, but my sister has two sons with the same middle names and very similar sounding first names, as apparently it's a family tradition of her husband's family, both he, his dad and brother have the same middle name as well.

    Nope, my sons both have N middle names so if I had a third son Id feel like I should use an N to lol

    (Nikolas and Nathan, nice normal names lol my theory is their firsts are a bit out there so if they hate them as adults they can go as Nikolas and Nathan)

    Boys in my Dad's side of the family carry on with the middle name Donald, named after our ancestor who came to Australia 9 generations ago. My Dad is the last of the line, as he had 3 girls.
    I refused to use it. So did my sister.
    But. Ds2's initials are D.O.N Differ if that counts for anything lolm
