I have a middle name, and I gave one of my daughters a middle name but not the other. (I felt her first name was unusual and pretty on it's own.) Having no middle name causes funny problems when filling out forms. Usually when I'd have to fill out a form for her at school, or somewhere, I'd leave the middle name blank and have it returned for not filling out the middle name part. I thought then I'd write (first name) middle: no middle name (last name) Imagine my surprise when they started filling out her forms then as (middle name) Noname Some teachers even tried pronouncing it like 'No-Nah-Me' and thought that WAS her middle name. Too funny! Who knew that not having a middle name could cause so many problems when filling out simple forms) After that we started writing in there 'she has no middle name.'
