Tradition i guess. DS has the same middle name as my dad and its my late grandfathers name too. One of the main reasons he got his middle name was because his due date was the date my pop passed 2yrs before. Of coarse DS came on his own date but his name sounds really lovely together.

My DS middle name is DH's, we like it and liked carrying through something of his family and it worked with DS first and last name.
My DD is a combination of my two sisters that passed away, it's not their names directly but the link is know to our family and friends and it was my way of honouring the people I miss the most in my life.

My eldest son has my surname as a middle name. It's a tradition I started . I love my surname and wanted to incorporate it into his name.
My sister will be doing it too if she has a boy.

I to mess with tradition?! Besides, it's not like middle names get used very often anyway.

DD has my name as her middle name. My DH really wanted her to have it although I wasnt so keen. DH has his late fathers name as his middle name and he said to me it meant alot to him especially after his dad passed away.

I didn't and wouldn't give my children any name that their father or myself had ourselves, apart from surname.
My name isn't that great, and nor is DP's. Consider DP and my brother both have the same name, there's more than enough of them related to me. I'm not adding more. lol.

My dds first name means reborn. We chose it because dh and I had very tough lives before meeting each other and she was our rebirth. Sounds a bit corny but it's true. Her middle name is my late aunts first name. My mum says her personality is exactly the same and all the girls born after her passing carry her name somehow.

Dp's first name is his fathers name and his two middle names are both his grandparents first names. Very old school. He hates the fact that he doesn't have his own name so to speak but respects the tradition. His mother and father had no choice. It was the done thing back then.
Both my sons have their own individual names. No family tradition whatsoever besides the obvious last name. We couldn't agree on any family names we liked so both the kids got their 'own' name.
