I would actually. And Elvin Gadd.

Elvin> Elbert. Seriously, elbert sounds like a character from sesame street.

I rarely use my middle name. I like my middle name though, it's Thomas.

But speaking of going by a different name, I do use my mothers last name sometimes. My real last name gets misspelled a lot and it's unpronounceable in English.

What's your middle name?

Malibu. I thought it was unique and cool, so I used it.

I went by my middle name for about 15 years, but didn't know my first name till I was like 7 lol. My family just always called me that so I figured it was my name.

I started going by my first name because it was alot easier for people to say and I wouldn't have to spell it out to them.

If it's famous people, then Chuck Norris is actually Carlos Norris.

Funfact.

One of my friends have the same first name as his brother AND father. It's hilarious as hell.

I think I'd be fine with going by my middle name, Joshua's a pretty cool name. But I don't think I'm perfectly comfortable with it being a biblical name, and I'm even less comfortable with it meaning "Yahweh is salvation" in Hebrew.

I'm not sure if my middle name is even official, but I wouldn't use it since it's my dad's name. I don't even use my real name since americans can't pronounce it, so using my dad's name wouldn't help at all.


This is my signature. It is a nice signature.

Some people in school call me by my middle name as a nickname. I go by my first name thought the majority of the time.

Your dad doesn't like being called junior?

And I see you aren't close to him,you are calling him your father.

I go by my middle name only if there's someone with the same first name as me around.

I have two middle names, neither of which fit me.
That, or I just feel more like my first name.

My dad goes by his middle name, Scott, but only because his first name is J, just the plain letter J. I have Scott for my middle name too, but I like Wesley better.

I go by my middle name and I wish my parents would have just chosen me to go by my first name. It makes it much easier for everyone. Parents just have the name you intend to call your child the first one.

This. I think my dad, grandpa, and great grandpa had the same first, middle, and last names. So my grandpa went as a nickname for his first name and my dad goes by his middle name.

So your name is Bjorn or Björn?
