I've noticed that an awful lot of the players in this set are called by their middle names. I'm curious how this compares to the general population. Would you please answer the poll below and I will post a count for the players? Then we can compare.


  1. I don't think there's a category for me. My name is based on both my first and middle names (if I was totally lazy, I'd sign my name as J. B., but JayBee is more unique).


    JayBee Anama

  2. a very good friend of mine just had a child and the search was for the middle name, since it is tradition to name the first male child "David" and she had no intention of calling her kid that. So he will always be called by his middle name. I find a lot of Juniors do this as well.

  3. Doesn't really count towards the poll but
    I call my kids by their nicknames: Sonny-Boy, Bub, B'duh-B'duh, and Peanut.

  4. JayBee, I'd say you fall into "other" since it's not strictly your first name or your last name.

    I can already see that the players in this set go by their middle names WAY more than we as the population of this blog that has responded to the poll. My quick guess is that 30% of the players in this set go by middle name.

  5. first name or MIDDLE name, I meant.
