Is it ok to give my second baby my first baby's middle name? i really like it and no one calls him by his middle name...

In my humble opinion I would choose not to use the middle name again, but that is just how I feel. I think it is up to you if you would like to use the same middle name again. I think it's really a personal issue on if you want to use it again.

You are the one giving birth to the kid. This give you the unlimited right to use ANY name you want as many times as you want!! Remember George Foreman? LOL

IMO that's fine. If you like the name that much use it.

You can do whatever you want but when your kids get a older they will not like it.

My cousin in WV named all 3 of her sons the same name. Then they all got to choose their own nickname to be called by when they got big enough.

A semi-distant relative of mine did that with all of her kids - she had 5 girls. they all had the same middle name "Jo". it was a family thing, i guess. it's not my thing at all, but if you like it that much, go for it. just make sure they won't be made fun of over it.

Both my mother and her oldest sister are named Mary...it caused a LOT of problems while they were growing up. Their birthdays are Jan 3 and Jan 5, and whenever birthday or Christmas cards would come in the mail addressed to "Mary B," there would be huge fights over who the mail was actually for, as well as other issues, such as the two of them going to the same school, etc. But, that's them having the same first name.

I am the eldest of three girls and when my parents had me they used my mother's first name as my middle name. After having another girl they thought it would be unfair to name only me after my mother so my two younger sisters also have the same middle name. We hate it! Swore I would never call my children all the same and I haven't they are all different. It's up to you as it is your baby but just putting across the view of the child! Sorry. Good luck with your beautiful baby!

I had this problem, when I had my second child, a daughter, I used my 2 favourite girl names. I had a second daughter 13months later!!! I decided that if I re-used the middle name my younger child might not appreciate our lack of imagination in giving her her 'own' name. I have since had a third daughter and am glad now that they are all soo different, they all have their very own name. I like the idea of giving the same 'middle' names-that is cute.

My fiances grandfathers middle name was steven, as is his dads, and his middle name is steven aswell. If we have a boy I plan to use Steven as his middle name as well. Not the same as all the children i know, but its a personal choice. Whats the middle name anyway?

His name is Jackson Alexander. I want to name our second son Alexander (and call him Alex). Haven't decided on a middle name yet though.

its your baby put personally I wouldn't. your first baby might feel like the second baby stole his/her name and that you like the second baby better. Your second baby might feel like he/she wasn't important enough for you to bother finding them their own name. However if you want to you can but you might get some issues to deal with.
