I would do it because I go by my middle name. Always have. I find it odd when I hear my first name.

DH's name is David and his middle name is Robert. His mom calls him Robert and sometimes I do when I'm being serious about something or really trying to get his attention.

My Mom's first name is Ceola and her middle name is Kay, everyone calls her Katee. Not sure if that's the same but yeah lol.

I don't see a problem with it. :)

My parents fought over my name when I was born and they ended up finally agreeing on Betsy Michelle as long as I was called Michelle. I personally see nothing wrong with it. I would love for my first name to be Michelle and totally get rid of Betsy but only because it makes me feel so old lol

I prefer to go by my middle name.
If this baby would have been a boy he'd have been Robert Theodore but I would have called him Teddy.

My sons name is James Ethan and goes by Ethan. James is a family name and he knows his full name. The only way I agreed to name him James was if we could call him Ethan

see im not as lucky as those who like there middle name... im Leah Dawn i dont look like a dawn and i would never go by it. my name fits me perfect. i dont think i will ever call my son by his middle name bc hes Bryson. i just think everyone is different and has there own option... this might change for me in a few years or it may not. i dont see a problem with it what so ever
