I actually came across that on another forum just before... there were three girls who all had the same m/n... I think it's completely up to you - if it's what you want to do, I'd go for it

I think it's completely up to the parents, but I do think it's weird. I have 2 sisters with the same middle name, but spelled differently. They are 1/2 sisters and each one was named for a different family member. We all (they included) think it's very odd that they have the same middle name. Middle names aren't used often, so it wouldn't be a big deal, but it's still odd. Mainly family member would know after a few years, pretty much everyone else is going to forget if they ever knew.

I don't think its that weird, I've heard of people doing it before. I taught twins that had the same name practically, apart from one letter. They were called Haleema and Aleema, can you imagine how easy it was to get them mixed up. They had the same middle name too. I think as long as they have very different first names then it would be fine

My twin sister and I have the same middle name, but the rest of my family all have different middle names. People occasionally comment on it, but they don't seem to find it very strange.

I think as long as ALL the girls or ALL the boys have the same middle name, it's fine. I have two sisters, but only share a middle name with one of them, and we pretty much hate it, lol. When it's ALL the kids it shows that the middle name has a special meaning, but when it's only some of the kids it just looks like the parents forgot what middle name they'd already used, or just lacked any kind of creativity. Twins makes sense, but my sister and I are six years apart.

I don't think it's weird to do it with the girls and not the boys - If there's no important boy name, it's silly to make one just for uniformity.

Ann is after my mom - and I don't want to name any of my girls after anyone else (my mom passed away when I was 17, and I can't stand my MIL..I have no sisters, DH has no sisters)


So we would either do Ann, or just do arbitrary names that flow well (For instance if we have a girl her name will be Paisley..we would do Grace just because I think Paisley Grace sounds nice, and flows well with Brylie Ann...but I would rather name her after someone, since if we had a boy he would be named after someone, and Brylie is named after someone...a boy would get either the male for of my mom's first name (Judy so he would be Jude) or the male form of MIL's name (Jo so would be Joseph, this name is also special to me on other levels, so we would't truly be naming after MIL, just letting her think we are )

I wouldn't do it. I like the fact the each child has their own name. I think Paisley Jo sounds cute and if you have other reasons then it being after MIL I would use that.

I don't think it's "weird" per se, but I think it's slightly unfortunate. ALL the men in my family on my Dad's side (my Dad, Uncle, and 3 cousins) have the same MN - Edward, after my Grandpa. It just gets repetative after a while. While my Mom also passed away when I was 17 and I do plan on using a name to honor her, I won't do it for all of my daughters. I think children want to have individual names, even if it is the MN. That being said, I think you could do variations of the same name for different children and that would work better. Ann, Anastacia, Annie, Annika...so on. Good luck!

I don't really like the idea. I'd want my kids to have the name all the themselves. I don't mind the suggestion of using a variation of Ann though. Paisley Annika or Paisley Arianne (love Paisley btw).
