Caius Michael - (Birth Announcements!)
I started to think about middle names and how often a more common or "filler" name is chosen. I wish there was an official SSA-style list for just middle names so we could calculate the most popular ones. However, it would make a difference if these were family names or used for sentimental reasons as opposed to just filling a space.
Beyond just finding repeating middle names, so many of these are classic or traditional names. I do like seeing the more unique options like Patience and Raven, Axel and Dash. However, I used Alexander for my own son's middle name and Sophia for my daughter so I understand the thought process. What are your kids' middle names?
Kailey Ann Marie
Blaze Steven Lee
Jake Harold Arthur
Christopher & Samuel
Richard & Ryan
What do you think of this list? Did any of these names stand out to you? Could you pick a favorite?

I like the name September for a girl! I would consider naming my daughter that in future. I LOVE your idea for October and Toby. Great name for a boy with the perfect nickname! I'm suprised July isn't more popular; that's a nice name as well.
Love the name Cillian! I named one of the characters in my novel that, but I'd been mispronouncing it as Sill-ian with a soft C.
