Macaulay Culkin Changes His Middle Name After Letting Fans Vote

Macaulay Culkin is synonymous with Christmas thanks to playing the lead in Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost In New York. And, for Christmas this year, he asked for a rather bizarre gift - a brand new middle name. And the people have spoken and they have chosen...Macaulay Culkin.

Macaulay, whose middle name was Carson, shared an article on his site bunnyears.com in November in which he explained that his middle was 'something dumb'.

"Larry? Orange? Honestly, I can't even remember it," he wrote.


"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."

And from the suggestions he pulled out five he liked, TheMcRibIsBack, Kieran, Shark Week, Publicity Stunt and Macaulay Culkin. All fine choices, I'm sure you'll agree.

He went on: "This poll is open till Christmas Eve so I can wake up to a wonderful present from everyone.

"Sure, I might have gold plated watercraft, and chrome plated invisibility cloaks, but all I want for Christmas is a new middle name.


"And then you can be all 'Oh, you got your wife a beautiful portrait of your family? Well, I chose Macaulay Culkin's Middle Name'."

And it was a landslide win for 'Macaulay Culkin', which scooped over 60,000 votes - so now, his name is Macaulay Macaulay Culkin Culkin. Beautiful.

Sharing his new moniker on Twitter Macaulay - who goes by Mack - wrote that it had a 'nice ring to it'.


Speaking to host Jimmy Fallon about his name change, he said: "So, if somebody comes up to me at the airport, and says, 'Excuse me, are you Macaulay Culkin?'

"I'd go, 'Well Macaulay Culkin is my middle name'." Nicely done.

This isn't Mack's first bit of Christmas fun this year, either. Earlier this month he took part in an ace advert for Google in which he recreated Home Alone scenes pretty much shot-for-shot.



Naturally, people absolutely loved the new clip and took to social media to talk about the massive dose of nostalgia it gave them seeing Mack stepping into Kevin McCallister's shoes once again.

Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals.
