We have had 24 US presidents who have had a middle name. (middle names were very rare in the US before the 1800's. ). Of the 24 only 5 had middle names that were common as first names (Henry, Alan, Howard, David, and Earl), and each of those 5 is also a last name (just check your phonebook). All the rest (19 of the 24 or 79%) were definitely the last names of others.

Also note that 3 of the presidents even used their Middle name instead of their very common first name and those MIDDLE names were LAST names: Stephen Grover Cleveland, John Calvin Coolidge, and Thomas Woodrow Wilson!!

Stephen Grover Cleveland was both the 22nd and the 24th president so he is counted twice. Harry S. Truman only used a middle initial, not a name. He said it stood for both of his grandfathers Anderson Shipp Truman and Solomon Young.
