Macaulay Culkin gave arguably the most bizarre Christmas gift to his fans on Tuesday with a public announcement that he would be changing his middle name to… Macaulay Culkin. You got it right: his new name will be Macaulay Macaulay Culkin Culkin. Probably not the worst option, given that others were Shark Week, TheMcRibIsBack, and Publicity Stunt.
Merry Christmas to me, from all of you!— Macaulay Culkin (@IncredibleCulk) 25 декабря 2018 г.
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
Fans seemingly can't get enough of Macaulay. "Is it weird that I'm a 44-year-old straight man that blatantly has a crush on you? I don't think so", wrote a man under the handle Andrew Harris.

It all started last month, when the 38-year-old declared on his own website BunnyEars that he would like to change his middle name (Carson), which he said he didn't even remember.
"My middle name is something dumb. 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".
Macaulay is used to making waves on social media. In a viral post that has hit close to 690,000 likes, he joked about his iconic role in Home Alone being a repellent from burglars on Christmas.

He reprised his role of Kevin McCallister from Home Alone for a Google Assistant holiday ad, where he recreated several scenes from the 1990 movie, including shaving, jumping on the bed, and watching a film while asking Google to set reminders.
