After my auntie was born, my grandfather was given the task of traipsing down to the register office to register the birth.

What my grandmother failed to realise was that his local pub was en route, and he stopped in for a few pints before making his way on to give the nice people at the council all of the details.

By the time he reached the register office, he was a little bit on the delicate side and had promptly forgotten the name that he was supposed to register on the birth certificate, so he just named her after his own grandmother.

Actually, thinking about it, this might also explain why my Dad has the same name as my grandfather - and indeed why my brother also has the same name.

I have a lingering fear that my brother and I are named after characters in 'The Archers'. The circumstantial evidence is pretty convincing.

My dad named his first son after himself, and his second son (Me) after his dad. My middle name is my maternal grandfathers's first name.

A profound lack of imagination by my parents, and also amusing because my brother got in to a lot of financial trouble which inadvertantly affected my dad on account of name confusion. That'll teach him to be so unoriginal.

My kids won't have any 'traditional' names from my family, because that would be dull. Dull dull dull. Are you listening to me, parents of Beex? Your children have dull names.

If your middle name is Walter that would clinch it.

Onóra isn't dull!

I should invite on my friend Sarah. She called her first child 'Maverick'.

OK, I'll let you off. But if she starts naming all of her kids and kids kids Onóra too then, well, I'll probably be dead by then. Carry on.

I know loads of people who are named after relatives, or who have middle names that are their parents first names. My brother's middle name is my father's first name.

I, on the other hand, was not only denied a family history name, but also a middle name all together. I'm the only Kathryn ever in my (known) family history. Completely random name, with the unusual way of spelling it to boot, and no middle name even though my brother does. Go figure!

I don't have a middle name as my parents were decisive.
