Middle MIddle (and Middle Again!) Naming

Is one middle name no longer enough? A recent trend shows why settle for one when you can have two! Celebrity babies paving the way for two middle names: Apple Blythe Alison and Moses Bruce Anthony, daughter and son of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin (and the grandchildren of Blythe & Bruce and Alison & Anthony); the twins Dexter Henry Lorcan & Frank Harlan James, named by parents Diana Krall and Elvis Costello; and on the older end of the trend, Jordon Alexandra Judith, ten-year old daughter to Sarah Brown of General Hospital fame. Perhaps the most striking example of multiple middle names comes from Seal and Heidi Klum, with their two sons Henry Günther Ademola Dashtu Samuel & Johan Riley Taiwo Samuel. Their daughter Helene (Leni) Boshoven Klum has a more traditional trio, and so with Heidi pregnant again – Seal just confirmed it – we’ll have to wait and see what name(s) are in store for the new addition to the family.
