Also there’s a really awesome lunar eclipse happening right now and it’s fucking cloudy :(
I need to do more Allen edits…
In the Catholic religion sometime babies are not given middle names and instead they take their confirmation name for their middle name. This was the case with both of my parents. The middle names they both use are their confirmation names.
Oh, I have heard of that though it’s not common in New Zealand, I was raised Catholic and never heard of anyone doing that that I know of here. Where are your parents from?
And if this is the case, it’d still mean he has one and I still want to know lol.
Anonymous asked: Here's another thought, if Allen was confirmed, he would have chosen another name as well. If he did, I wonder what that would be..
I was actually going to mention that in one of my replies but they both got a little long lol (I’m a rambler :P).
Though in my mind religion is pretty personal (or should be) so I’m not actually all too curious at all about his religious beliefs. I suspect he’s Catholic because it’s likely coming from Ireland and he went to Catholic school and has joked about his mother being Catholic too so I think it is likely he’s been confirmed too. But he’s never talked about it in interviews so I’ve never found it too relevant. Though he might if asked, idk.
Also, I’m not sure how common it is to add your confirmation name to your middle name. I had one friend who did it but she’s the only one (and I went to a Catholic school lol).
Someone just really needs to ask him his middle name next time he’s at the Apple Store lol.
Anonymous asked: What if Alan is his middle name? And he changed it to his first from another? My mother is called by her middle name on everything but her drivers license, insurance, passport etc.
I suppose that’s always possible, I know people who go by alternate names too- whether it’s a middle name or just one they liked better than their given one. Actually this case I probably find more common than no middle name.
Though I do feel it’s pretty unlikely to be the case for Allen. Most sources refer to ‘Alan Leech’ as his birth name and he was ‘Alan’ at school too, which usually uses legal names in anything written down. I’m not sure why he changed the spelling but I prefer ‘Allen’ lol.
Also, I feel like that’s something that would have been bought up in an interview at least once? Maybe not a big thing but with actors/signers etc who use another name than their given one it tends to be mentioned at the least. And if it was ever mentioned about Allen I would know lol- I’m only a really casual fan of Rob James Collier but I still know he only uses ‘James’ in his professional name because there was already a ‘Rob Collier’ in Equity (the British acting union) which requires their members to have unique professional names.
If your Mum was famous I’m sure someone would ask her about it at least once :P
Anonymous asked: Maybe he has no middle name
There is always that… Now I’m wondering if it’s odd I kinda hope he does though.
I have no idea how common it is not to have a middle name, I only know one person I can think of right now who doesn’t have any.
Dammit, Anon, now I want to know even more! Even if the answer is ‘none’ lol.
Sometimes I remember I don’t know Allen’s middle name and I kinda wish I did.
Then I’m not sure if that’s weird or not…
