in reply to Do you have a middle name?

I've got the exact same first middle last as a cousin of mine (he's about 10 years older). Purely coincidence though. I'm just fortunate that I didn't get stuck with a middle name, then a baptismal name and a confirmation name (the middle name stands in for the other two).

    Same first middle last as a cousin and you believe it's a coincidence? I'm guessing you were both named after the same relative.
