Macaulay Culkin is changing his middle name after letting fans decide in an online poll.
The Home Alone star, whose full name was Macaulay Carson Culkin, asked for suggestions in a post on his Bunnyears site in November.
He said he wanted a new moniker because his previous middle name was “something dumb”.
The former child star posted: “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 court house and explain to a judge why I need to change my middle name to something cool.”
From the dozens put forward by fans, the 38-year-old whittled them down to five — TheMcRibIsBack, Kieran, Shark Week, Publicity Stunt and Macaulay Culkin — before giving his followers the final say.
And after tens of thousands of votes, the winner by a landslide was… Macaulay Culkin.
The actor announced the result on Twitter on Christmas Day, 24 hours after the poll ended.
He posted: “My new middle name has been chosen. You voted and the winner is clear.
“In 2019 my new legal name will be: Macaulay Macaulay Culkin Culkin. It has a nice ring to it (if you like my name). #MerryChristmas.”
Announcing the poll in November, the star wrote: “This poll is open till Christmas Eve so I can wake up to a wonderful present from everyone.
Merry Christmas to me, from all of you!

“Sure, I might have 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’.”
The winning choice received more than 60,000 votes, a country mile ahead of runner-up TheMcRibIsBack with just 14,500.
Kieran, Publicity Stunt and Shark Week trailed in third, fourth and fifth places respectively.
