"Davis had been a middle name in our family since at least 1888 (grandfather, then 1936-father, and my name of use since my birth in 1960). Think it was somebody's maiden name way back in the day.
It causes some confusion at first but I always know it is me they want and not David, Dave, or Davey.... :-)" Feb. 28, 2021:
"Davis is my brother's name. It's our mother's maiden name, so we really like it. We've come across about three other people with the same name, which means it's super unique!" Dec. 5, 2019:
