Does anyone else pass on middle names as well?

In my family all the males have the same middle name and the same goes for the females. When I told a friend this, she looked at my confused. I thought this was more common place, but I'm begining to think not so much. Does anyone else have this tradition in their families?

  • Kyra's middle name is a combination of my mom's and my mother-in-law's middle names. My husband and his brother each have 2 middle names. One is the same.

  • My mom, me and my daughter all have the middle name Elizabeth. My FIL, husband, and son all have the middle name Dean. And all three first names start with a C. So it is a tradition in our family.

  • In my family (on my dads side) all the men have their fathers first name and a middle name. In my grandpa's family (moms side) none of the kids had middle names at all.. He always said they were "too poor", as if names costed money haha
