Middle Initials

You know the names, but do you know what that initial stands for? Today’s mental_flosss quiz tests your knowledge of famous people with middle initials. I scored 50%, which is about what I expected. http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/15597

I failed abysmally.
I got James K. Polk
Susan B. Anthony
Richard M. Nixon
and Homer J. Simpson

only reason I knew Polk was because my family is descended from him, and it's my grandparent's last name.

My bohemian parents decided to let my sister (born 1972) and I (born 1970) choose our own middle-names. How lame is it that neither of us followed through and chose middle-names?

My wife is from a country/culture where EVERYBODY has a given name and a formal "nickname" with which they are associated for the rest our our lives. Perhaps coincidentally, my wife is one of the only people from her country that any of us has ever met that doesn't have a formal nickname. She's always gone by her complete first name.
