Do You Really Need To Have A Middle Name?
[ Go to Tips and Quips Menu ]

In the U.S. armed forces everyone is assumed to have no fewer than three names. If there is no middle name or initial, that fact is noted in parentheses (NMI).

Sometimes rookies, seeing NMI as part of another man's name, may say, "That is one funny middle name. Do you call it Nummy, or what?"

Another rule that used by the Armed Forces is when an initial is shown on one's birth certificate instead of a name the word (only) is placed after the initial. So Captain Harry S. Truman was officially Harry S. (only) Truman.
