medpat - thanks for the comment - that is closer to my situation. Can I ask what year she was born and year of wedding? I'm looking for patterns of behavior. Thanks

Lucy born 5th November 1877 - can't find baptism but not saying she wasn't baptised

Married 1900 married as Lucy

Baptised St Christopher's Walworth London 1902 became Lucy Margaret - baptised in married name and her parents named on the register, they were the same as her birth cert. - proof same person

Familyskeletons, "Mine" was actually William Whiteley ISHERWOOD", not Sherton - but that was an aside from your main point about middle names.
A young friend of mine recently got married, and after the event, decided to "keep" her maiden surname, as an additional middle name to be followed by her married surname. Apparently she had to do it by deed poll, - I'd thought she could just say she wanted to be known as......".......". But she actually did that, I know because she asked me to sign it. I was most surprised.
