Names Please

Why is it that men's middle names seem to be a whole lot more amusing than women's? My middle name is Jean, and Harry's is Leviene .... and he's a Jr.

I went to school with a guy named Glenn Orndorf - and was a Jr. the III. Is that just mean, or what? I mean, imagine any phone call to the house. "Is Glen there?" Well, which one? What kind of business would know if they're calling for Glenn the II or Glenn the III?

My name has been mistaken for Arnie a few times. I guess the m looks like rn? And I get Annie all the time. There were 3 other girls in my class with my name. 3 of us spelled it "Amie" and one "Amy". Isn't that funny? And we thought we were going to be unique. People spell my name Amy or Aimee all the time. But all in all, I really like my name - Mom, Dad; you did good.

So today I want to know your middle name please, and your mate's middle name if you could. :) This should be good.

I don't particularly care for mine (Sue), but I would agree with you. The man's middle name is "Oran" with initials being COC. Interesting, huh?

mine is "Marie"... I'm named after a movie star.

Ummm mine is Walter. Please try to forget that.

I think mine is obvious. Our daughter has the same middle name as me, and our son is a II (not a jr.) named after his grandpa. So that makes his middle name the same as his father's first name. Figure that one out.

Mine is Joy. I'll go with Heth and let him post his if he wishes to do so.

Well, I'd have to say Bill is the bravest of the males. Way to go Bill! And don't worry, you know I have the worst memory ever, right?
