My middle name is Marie, after my mom's middle name. Her first name, Carley, was taken from a Zane Grey novel Grandma was reading while she was pregnant. (Call of the Canyon.)

My middle name is Ann. I have no idea where it came from. My first name Charlotte was taken off of a picture on a calendar. My Mom was going to make my middle name May I guess because that is the month I was born. I was so grateful she didn't. My maiden name was Herdt (pronounced hurt). Could you imagine growing up being called Charlotte May Herdt. I got teased enough about my last name the way it was. LOL emoticon

I have a middle name - Lynne - but alas no interesting story. Mother just thought it worked well with my first name. Boring, huh?
I can't picture you as a Margie, Jo! I'm too used to Jo!

That is an interesting subject. Years ago a lot of people did not have middle names. If you work with genealogy it can be very confusing at times without middle names to go by.
I wonder if this is why they add middle names.

And then there are the older ones, like my father born in 1906, that had middle names after someone famous.
My fathers name was Loren, his middle name was Theodore Roosevelt!! Then he had his last name. As kids we always thought it was funny that daddy had four names!!

I don't have a middle name either. My first name came from a movie, called Cat Ballou. I was named after the character "Kid Shelleen". That's not how I spell it though.
Oh well! How many other women can say that they were named after a drunk cowboy? emoticon :)

What fun stories! I have one too!!
My middle name is the name I go by, Joleen. My first name is Margie, after my mother.
The reason I go by my middle name is because that is what my mother wanted me to be called. But she also wanted me to be named after her.
But she just "could NOT" name me Joleen Margie because it would not "rhyme" with my two older sister's names!! LOL
So we are....
Shirley Jean
Janice Loreen
and
Margie Joleen!!

I do not know where my middle name came from but my first name, Marilyn, came from the nurse who delivered me. The doctor delivered my twin sister and then left the delivery room to tend to her which left my delivery up to the nurse. My Mom had no idea she was having twins and wanted to name me after the nurse. My twin's name is Sharilyn.

My middle name is Louise. I was named after my Dad's Dad, Lewis. If I was born a boy, that would have been my name.

Love God for who He is...not what He does.

My middle name is Jo. I joke that I was named for my uncle Joe because my sister's middle name is Suzanne, after my aunt. I think my mom liked the name. My oldest daughter's middle name is Jo, and her oldest daughter's middle name is Jo, so I guess we started a new family name.
