Actor Macaulay Culkin will be true to his word and legally change his middle name to a name of his fans’ choosing. Buzz60’s Justin Kircher has the details.
Macaulay Culkin has a new middle name, thanks to a bunch of filthy animals who voted.
The 38-year-old former kid actor told host Jimmy Fallon he was ready to leave his current middle name, Carson, behind. And now he can.
By an overwhelming number of votes – 60,990 according to the poll results – the proposed middle name Macaulay Culkin beat out the other finalists: Shark Week, Kieran (a suggestion from his brother, “Succession” actor Kieran Culkin), TheMcRibIsBack and Publicity Stunt.
TheMcRibIsBack came in second with 14,558 votes according to the website, with Kieran rounding out the top three with 13,559 votes.
Culkin announced the winner on Twitter Christmas Day, probably after he got done asking Santa for a new family and thanking him for a toothbrush approved by the American Dental Association.
“In 2019 my new legal name will be: Macaulay Macaulay Culkin Culkin,” he shared with followers. “It has a nice ring to it (if you like my name).”
Culkin previously opened up about the possibilities to Fallon, including being Macaulay Macaulay Culkin Culkin.
“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,” he said.
