What is your middle name? Does it carry any special meaning/significance?

I blog anonymously. I don’t reveal my real world first name, nor my last name. I do have a real world middle name, but since I blog anonymously, I’m not going to reveal my middle name either.

My blogging nom de plume, pen name, pseudonym, the name under which I blog, is Fandango. Fandango has a last name, according to WordPress. It’s Fivedotoh. So for blogging purposes, my full name is Fandango Fivedotoh.

Fandango Fivedotoh has no middle name, so if I am to write a post about my middle name, it would have to be “NMN.” And that makes me Fandango NMN Fivedotoh

NMN means “No Middle Name.” It has no significance other than as a placeholder for where a middle name would be if Fandango had one, which he doesn’t.

As to the meaning or significance of my real world middle name, which I’m not going to reveal, I have no idea. I’d have to ask my parents why they chose that particular name for my middle name. But I can’t. They’re dead. So if there was any special meaning or significance to my real world middle name, my parents took it with them to the grave.

Oh well.

    My sister says her middle name’s WYW (Whatever You Want). I just call her “Sissy-poo”. I’d call her by her real 1st name, but I can’t remember it…

    My grandfather said he didn’t have a middle name because you had to pay per letter on a birth certificate and his family was too poor. He spent my entire youth telling me that therefore his middle name was Zilch and his parents couldn’t change it. I don’t know why this made me think of that, but it did. Thank you for the memory!!

    🤔 Fandango, you can always use Google to find out what your real middle name means (And when you find out its meaning, reveal it to no one; not even your wife).

    In my family, the first borns are always named after their parents and must go by their middle names in order not to be called Junior. Thus it was easy for my mother to explain.
