Does anyone else go by their middle name?

My siblings and I do. I have no idea why our mother did this to us. In any medical or legal setting I am referred to as my first name). It's annoying. And it took me forever to not HATE my name. I always thought Dawn was sooooo boring.
Cara Dawn (I always got the male spelling, Don, even from my teachers!!
My brothers, Wesley Bruce & Lee Trevor and my sister Bridget Michelle.

Does anyone else go by their middle name, either chosen by your parents or just something you prefer?

Not really, I hate my middle name. Do not laugh, but I like the name Dawn

Awe, thanks! I never hear anyone say they like my name!
What is your middle name and why do you hate it?

I've always actually liked the name Dawn. It's very feminine and pretty. My grandmother went by her middle name. I have 2 middle names, I'm not particularly fond of either. But, I have completely dropped the second one from every legal document that I am permitted to - it's still on my SIN card and drivers license but I will try to get it off my license next renewal. I was named in 'honor' of a family member who turned out to be a very mean, selfish, manipulative person so I've dropped it in anyway I can. And that's why my kids are not named after anyone, in any way.

My Parents Hyphenated my name, so that my legal name is actually Tonya-Anne. However, a lot of systems won't allow the hyphen, so I now have a history of sometimes being Tonya and sometimes being Tonya-Anne, and have had several issues where the two don't actually match.

I heat ya! I get Cara-Dawn, Cara or Dawn. Then when I got married last year my French surname turned into my husband's Greek surname which also starts with a "P" and people struggle to pronounce both of them. I haven't changed my surname on legal documents yet but I have changed it on healthcare documents so I just answer to anything LOL.

I personally don't like my first name (Rebecca) or my middle name (Lynn), so I just stuck with my first, played around with it in high school (went by Becky).. But now strictly Rebecca because I think its more mature lol

I know a few people who have gone by their middle name and since changed their middle name to their full name, and most times there was a backlash from their parents. When naming my son I considered how the names flowed together and gave him two middle names... Just in case :p

I think Dawn is a really nice name though!! :) I considered it as a baby name if I had had a girl!

My parents didn't give me a middle name so I don't have the option to pick or chose either one. I do like the name Dawn it's really pretty. If I could chose a middle name for myself it would be Sophia I really like that name.
