    My grandmother had gone by "Anne" her entire life.  Went to apply for SS, she learned for the first time that her legal name was "Edith Anne."  Marriage license, every piece of identity paper her whole life was "Anne" and a different middle name.  

    No earthly idea what is the problem with parents who name a child something they don't intend to call the child.  My husband is "Michael XXXX," but has been called by his middle name his entire life.  His parents called him that.  So why name him Michael?  He's like some kind of bank robber, he's got all kinds of records as Michael XXX, Michael X, M.X., M. XXXX, it's ridiculous.  I wanted him to legally change it to XXXX Michael, but now we have a child and Michael XXXX is on kiddo's BC, so probably too much of a hassle at this point.  But it's a major pain when we apply for joint credit, there's about half a dozen "aliases" for DH.
