Middle Names

Do you have a middle name?

I do!

This is sort of embarrassing, but guess what my middle name is...Tree!

You know...because that makes me "Christmas Tree".

I believe it was on Halloween last year. My mom and I were taking a walk in the morning and she jokingly decided my middle name would be Tree. I thought it was funny, until the joke was no longer a joke and my mom decided Christmas Tree would be a pawfect full name for me.

But I'm not happy about it. Here are more dignified names I'd much rather prefer.

Christmas Edward

Christmas Henry

Christmas Aloysius

Christmas McHandsome (this one suits me the best!)

Do you pooches and kitties have middle names?


  1. Why, Christmas Mc Handsome sounds good to us.
    Better than what my middle name is... wild child.
    XO Astro

  2. Oh Christmas you crack us up
    My real name is Julius "Edward"
    Edward (& Lily)

  3. Do you know what the L. W. stand for in my name, Chester L. W. Spaniel? When I was a pup, some of my humans thought my feet looked like Dr. Seuss feet. You know, furry with pointed toes? So my whole name is Chester Lou Who Spaniel. Ghostwriter says these days, my furry feet look more like dirt magnet mops!

  4. Well think that Christmas Tree is a great name. We don't have middle names so guess we are better off. But if your name is going to be Christmas, nothing wrong with being Christmas Tree. Have a most wonderful day.

  5. That's such a cute name!
    We don't have middle names but we get our names changed around a lot - like, Elli, Melliot, Shelliot.
    Cricklet, Crickles, Crick and Crickie.
    Elliot and Cricket x

  6. Hari OM
    Oh I like Christmas Aloysius! Why not have three names, or go totally 'royal' and take the lot!!! Did you know that my "YAM" is actually my initials? - Yamini Ali MacLean - but it also makes up the first three letters of the first name and therefore works either way! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  7. My name is Molly Pitcher CannonBall. How dumb is that! I think Tree is cute, Christmas!

  8. We don't have middle names, just nicknames and some of those are not complimentary.

  9. Mol mol mol Christmas...your middle name is Tree.
    My full name (not on any registered papers but just in mom's head) is Madison D. Cat
    As in Madison the Cat.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  10. PS mom meant to say she went to high school with a girl whose first name was Merry her last name was Christmas....Mom doesn't recall if she had a middle name but Merry Christmas was enough

  11. I totally agree with you, it should be Christmas McHandsome, that has a real ring to it!
    Loves and licky kisses
    Princess Leah xxx

  12. Hailey Bug and Zaphod Beeblebrox.
    Tree rhymes with pee and you can pee on a tree, so maybe it isn't a bad middle name:)
    We would vote for McHandsome.

  13. Definitely McHandsome. Lexi's full name was Lexington Barbeque. I changed it to Lexi so she wouldn't feel so paranoid. (She was named after a BBQ joint in NC.) ~Amy

  14. BOL! My middle names is Arielle - one of my momma's favorite movies are Da Little Mermaid and Miss Whitley had a French middle name so I got one too.

  15. My Mommy calls me Amber LYNN, butt mostly when she's yelling at me. BOL BOL ♥♥♥

  16. Mom calls me all kinds of things and keeps changing my middle name. Right now it is Bean. Stanley's middle name is Great.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  17. How funny was Bella, Roxy and Dui's comment. Christmas Tree ..... oh my!! You're Mom's a bit of a comedian I think. I like Aloysius best. I get Charlie ... wait for it ...... Chuckles and my last name is ALLNUT!! How bad is that. There's a story about the Allnut but you'd have to go back to my very first posts to find out about that. It's awful embarrassing.

    My moms BF's daughter had a baby and their last name was Waters. They named her Crystal and thought about the middle name being Clear!! BOL

  21. Christmas McHandsome sounds good to me BOL I don't have a middle name but my registered name is Darksprite Strawberry Moon which is a big name for a little dog so I am happy just to be Moth :-) nose licks and love from Moth xx

  22. the mama knew a dachshund named aloysious... his complete name was aloysious from thunderberg and he was the hunting partner of a nice old man :o)

  23. Yes, we both do! I earned my middle name of Houdini by breaking out of my crate over and over again and then mastering how to open the doorknob of the bedroom too! Bwahahaha!

    Jessie's full name is Jessalyn Ella. Ella is in honor of my angel sissy Cinderella, who we called Ella most of the time, because Momma KNOWS Ella had a paw in sending Jessie to us.
