The middle names project

So this has nothing to do with children’s books but I wanted to share anyway as it is about words and names and sometimes history and all of those interesting things. Milo’s dad has been working on a new blog for a little while. The middle names project. The idea was sparked while we were thinking of Milo’s middle name (Walter – after my granddad), and an interest to see what other middle names there are out there and the stories behind them.

Take a look for yourselves. It’s fascinating and a little addictive. And, if you have a middle name you can submit your own story behind it on tumblr (or by email if you’d prefer). And if you don’t have a middle name but an interesting story as to why not, then feel free to submit that too.

Today’s middle name tweets are quite topical:

James Gordon Brown
David William Donald Cameron
Nick William Peter Clegg
