Macaulay Culkin rose to fame as a child star thanks to movies like Home Alone and Richie Rich. His name is known far and wide, but what isn’t known is his middle name. Apparently, it wasn’t even known to him.
Culkin wrote on his website Bunny Ears:
“My middle name is something dumb. Larry? Orange? Honestly, I can’t even remember it. So I asked you all to send in some better options so I can go down to the court house and explain to a judge why I need to change my middle name to something cool.”
He left the future of his middle name up to a poll and on Christmas Day he announced via Twitter:
Merry Christmas to me, from all of you!
My new middle name has been chosen. You voted and the winner is clear.
In 2019 my new legal name will be:
Macaulay Macaulay Culkin Culkin.
It has a nice ring to it (if you like my name).#MerryChristmas
