What's the point of a middle name?

My kids have middle names...so do I. I was just thinking, what's the point of having one? It's not like we walk up to people and say "Hi! I'm darby dilbert."(Lol not my name). Who really knows it besides your parents? Is it just to make us more unique?

I don't know really, but I kicked it up a notch and my son has 2 middle names, so...lol...I guess it's just a preference thing.

I think maybe to distinguish you from the other Jane Doe's. I like the idea of a middle name so when my kids get older if they don't like their first name they can use their middle name instead. Options! lol

I think I just did it bc that's what you do lol. My ex doesn't have one and that always seemed weird to me.

I have no idea. Maybe its to make us more identifiable? Because so many first and last names are a dime a dozen, they gave people middle names to seperate an individual from another individual. Like you know, to not get people confused with someone else.
