I have one allot like that. It came from my great-grandmother on my fathers side... and it's Stincy (pronounced: Stin-see) I hated it in school because it always got switched to stinky... in fact, I was almost baptized Meaghan Stinky... I do like it now though. And soon (after I'm married) I'll have 2 because I'll legally change my maiden name to be a middle name.
My brother also has 2 middle names. He got his own first name then his middle names are our father's first & middle name. So, my dad is Thomas Scott & my brother is Joshua Thomas Scott.
What's funny is my parents almost named my Abigail (I always LOVED the name Abby) but they didn't because my dad didn't want me beign called Abby for some reason... he liked the full name but not the most likely nick name. Instead I was dubbed Meggy by family.
