Middle Name Pride Day
Ahhh Middle Names. The unwanted step-child of the name game. Aside from those three named celebrities, its a good bet that no one uses their middle names.

Who knows your middle name? That’s what I thought.

Well today is your day to be proud, to let it out and let it free. Tell 3 people, who do not already know your middle name. And hopefully they’ll share their middle names with 3 people. And they’ll tell 3. And so on and so on.

It’s Celebrate Your Name Week! and all this week that’s exactly what we’ll be doing – celebrating our names! So stop back tomorrow for more fun during our week long celebration of names.
