So should cousins have the same middlename?

Well, for us, it doesn't matter now, cause we already used it.

James as a middlename-
Christian James
James Michael

Rose as a middlename -
Gabriella Rose
Anna Rose

Do you have any repeating middlenames in your family???

I think it all depends. If the middle name is honoring someone in the family, I don't see a problem with it... if the cousins don't see each other that often, I also don't see a problem with that. I think it just depends on how the two people involved feel about it (the parents). I personally wouldn't do it, but that doesn't make it right or wrong. I don't want to use my DH's name as a middle name because his nephew already has it as his middle name.... and I kind of feel jipped out of being able to use it.... Oh well. I will never give my child a middle name just to be a "filler" it will have meaning to DH and I and we actually use Brinlee's middle name a lot... I prefer to call her Brinlee Addisyn. But anyway, like I said... I think it is a personal decision... if you don't have a problem with it, then do it... but there is nothing wrong with not agreeing with it.

I don't think its a problem, like its a middle name and how often is it actually used.

I don't think it matters for middle names at all and I'm assuming that they are in honor of someone. I think it's great that you both think so much of that family member to name your children after them!

I don't see a problem with it. You don't really use middle names that often anyway.[/b]
Ditto this post, I completely agree.

I would even think that having the same middle names as cousins would strenghthen the family bonding!
