The actor took to his official website BunnyEars.com to inform his fans about his problem about 'not remembering' his middle name which is ‘dumb’ like Larry or Orange. And he wants help with ’better options’ to go to a court and explain to the judge how he wants to change his middle name to ‘something cool.’

The actor had, however, shared his conundrum with fans before and looking at the entries, thought Macaulay Culkin, Shark Week, Kieran, TheMcRibIsBack and Publicity Stunt were the five best ones. 

The poll is open till Christmas and Macaulay added that he might have ‘gold plated watercraft,’ and ‘chrome plated invisibility cloaks,’ but the ‘wonderful gift’ on the festival for him will be his ‘new middle name.’ He also quipped how gifting Macaulay ​​​​​​​Culkin’s middle name was a better idea that gifting your wife a beautiful portrait of the family. 

The actor also recently appeared on the ‘The Tonight Show’ with Jimmy Falon where he revealed that the decision came to his mind after seeing his middle name Carson on his passport recently and he thought of ‘sprucing’ it. 

On the first name, he thought it’d be fun to correct someone that Macaulay ​​​​​​​Culkin is his middle name when someone addresses him with his actual name. He stated he's never watched the popular TV show ‘Shark Week’, the second option.

Kieran was one his brother suggested. On the fourth choice, he said the McDonald’s McRib is back, one which he tried recently. For the last and final option, 'Publicity Stunt', he said it was his girlfriend Brenda Song who suggested it.
