What about no middle name?

My question is this: What about giving your child no middle name?
I didn't think this would be much of a problem either, but I have heard opinions from people before that giving your child no middle name seems cruel, and others would make fun of them for being "different". Also, it offers the child no option of using a middle name if they do not want to use their first. While this may be true, how many people do you know that go by their middle name? What do you think? Is it a bad idea to give your child no middle name? What are the pro's and con's to this?

But when I will get children, I will defiantly give them a middle name. Because there are so many names I love and If I get a boy it would be a great way to honor my dad.

I have two girls with the same first and last name and if it weren't for their middle names, the schools who be pretty darn confused!
I personally LOVE middle names. It sets you apart from other people with your namee!

That said, I think it's nice to give your child a mn as long as you find two names you really love, or want to honour someone. If you are just going to choose a mn because most people have two names, then I don't see the point of doing so.

I could see how not having a mn could make a child feel left out or different from the other kids and I could also see how if you explain it right and treat it right, that a child might feel special because they are different.
The only other person I know who decided to not give their child a mn was a couple of Hispanic decent who wanted to honor their heritage, so when they were married they hiphenated their two rather long names. When they had their daughter they decided that to give her a mn would be too long of a name since she already had two long last names. They were able to choose one name that they really loved for a first name and I think their reasons for not giving a mn were valid.
