Macaulay Culkin has Legally Changed His Name


Macaulay Culkin, the former child star known for his role in Home Alone, has made a unique and legal change to his name.

At the age of 42, Culkin remains connected to his devoted fan base, sharing updates about his life. However, many are unaware that he has officially altered his name.

Born with the middle name Carson, which was reportedly inspired by Kit Carson, a famous American frontiersman, Culkin decided it was time for a change. He engaged his fans by conducting a poll on his website, allowing them to choose his new moniker.

Expressing his dissatisfaction with his current middle name, Culkin wrote, “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 courthouse and explain to a judge why I need to change my middle name to something cool.”

After receiving hundreds of suggestions, Culkin selected his favorite five options for the poll: Macaulay Culkin, Shark Week, Kieran, TheMcRibIsBack, and Publicity Stunt.

As the poll approached its conclusion, Culkin humorously stated, “Sure, I might have a 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 they will cry and cry. Don’t be the kind of person who cries on Christmas. Be the kind person that chooses my new middle name.”

With over 100,000 votes cast, “Macaulay Culkin” emerged as the clear winner, garnering more than 61,000 votes. Consequently, his official name is now Macaulay Macaulay Culkin Culkin.

While some may find this choice peculiar, it is certainly more preferable than having a middle name paying homage to a popular McDonald’s sandwich.

In response to the name change, one Twitter user commented, “[This] is why you never ask the internet for their opinion on naming things. It always ends up being the most ridiculous thing ever. Just ask Boaty McBoatface.”

Another individual expressed surprise, writing, “I was today years old when I found out that Macaulay Culkin’s middle name is legally Macaulay Culkin.”

A third person shared their amusement, stating, “Today I learned that Macaulay Culkin changed his middle name to Macaulay Culkin. So his whole name is now Macaulay Macaulay Culkin Culkin, and this somehow makes me extremely happy.”

Adding humor to the conversation, someone jokingly suggested, “Damn. I was pulling for Camaulay Mulkin. Macaulay Camaulay Mulkin Culkin.”

Curiosity piqued, another fan inquired, “Did you seriously get this officially done? I’ve been waiting to see some kind of legal doc. It’s still funny but that’ll drive it home as completely amazing!”

While opinions vary, one fan appreciated Culkin’s original name, stating, “Macaulay Carson Culkin has a wonderful ring to it.”
