Extra Names

I liked redroses' idea of a thread...what I'm wondering, though, is if anyone has an extra name other than their First, Middle, and Last? I don't mean a nickname in this case.

=======
For example, my first and second are Daniel Patrick, but my third is Edward. I'm Catholic, and as a part of the sacrament of Confirmation (kind of becoming an adult in the Church), we choose a third name.

This happened when I was around 12-13 years old, and we were able to pick our own name (which was pretty cool to me!).

I picked St. Edward as my namesake because of a story I had read about him...he was an English King, and apparently he once saw a beggar and gave him the ring off of his finger. I really liked that, and it fit my personality, so there you go. It still does fit my personality and my career choice somewhat, so I still embrace the name even when I'm not as active with the Church as I should probably be.

Any extra names here on GF?

I don't even have a middle name, let alone a third name lol. I've never heard of that before.

I chose both my "extra names" and my brothers We both have two middle names from our christening.

I am Keeley-Ann Maureen Georgia and my Bro is Jacob James Elias.

(For the record I did NOT choose Maureen :( My nan is called Maureen and my mum was trying to make her happy :( )

So, I'm confused...is Keeley-Ann your full first name? Or are Ann and Maureen your two middle names from your Christening and Georgia came later?

Pretty much the same thing as Unity said there...

I have a confirmation name of Joseph which I was able to pick during that process. So I have my normal first name, last name and middle name and then that "4th" name in there.

I don't ever use it for anything though :lol:

lol, I may have never heard of a person not having a middle name!
Er, I don't have a middle name either. Neither does my elder sister. Our names only have 12 letters (full names).

But! Somehow, when I was about to be baptised, the Church requested for a more Christian/Catholic-y name for me. I don't know why coz my last name is a famous Bible character anyway. :lol: So my mom somehow managed to insert "Maria". However it is only on my baptismal certificate. I skipped it during confirmation and tried to not put it for the wedding documents either because I know I'll have problem with messing up my legal name.

I know of several people who have "4" names, so to speak. I often wondered about that. I am not Catholic, I'm not anything actually, of any religion, and I just have the usual- first, middle and last names. But I also know of a couple people who don't have a middle name. I really do loathe my middle name.

I actually have five names, though not all of them are legally. I have a first, two middle names, and two last names.

I'm not sure, exactly why I have a second middle name, but I bet it's something to do with a baptismal thing. I've had it as long as I can remember but it's never been on any documentation that I've had. And I have my legal last name, then my stepdad's last name is on all of my school's paperwork in parentheses. Mikel Anthony James Tibbetts (Freeze)

That's a long ass name.
