Other interesting “middle name” facts:

1. Our first five presidents of the Church had no middle name. Our last twelve presidents of the Church have had middle names.
2. Of the 19 apostles without middle names, 16 of them were born before 1863. Only 3 were born after 1863 (Matthew Cowley and LeGrand Richards and Ulisses Soares).
3. Interestingly, five of the 19 apostles without middle names had fathers who had middle names (for example, Matthew Cowley’s father was named Matthias Foss Cowley).
