||2nd name by Andrew
I am not too sure when two given names (first and middle) came in to use but I am pretty sure it started in Germany. It really only became popular in the middle of the 1800s in English speaking countires amongst the general populations.
I assume since it appeared in royal families it might have been used as a way of appeasing rivals faction within families by naming a child after more than on person.
