Mine is Hale.....I only ask this because I am curious of how they were thought up by peoples parents...... My middle name is one that has been past down from generation to generation, and I am the last to have it....I don't plan on giving it to any of my children either.........if I have more children......

Mine is May. I have no idea. My daughters middle name is Mellizza. I was going to be Melissa and then my husband got to playing with the spelling and change the s's to z's and it change the whole name. No one else has that name and I love that fact.

My middle name is Anne. It's not a name from any of my ancestors though. My Mother said it was after Princess Anne, of England, because she liked the way it was spelled with the e on the end.
