Macaulay Culkin got quite an interesting deal when names were handed out.

And now the 38-year-old is willing to play the lottery again.

Born Macaulay Carson Culkin, the Home Alone actor didn’t quite feel as though his middle name fitted with his two others, as he told Jimmy Fallon.

“So I was staring at my passport recently and stuff, and I was looking over my middle name — my current middle name is Carson — and I thought I should probably spruce up my name a little bit,” he said on The Tonight Show.

The actor currently has 5 possible options which he is asking the public to vote on: Macaulay Culkin, Shark Week, Kieran, The McRib Is Back, Kieran, and Publicity Stunt.

The latter two were suggested by his brother Kieran, and girlfriend Brenda Song, respectively.

“Macaulay Culkin” is currently in the lead on his website, which would make his name “Macaulay Macaulay Culkin Culkin”.

The new moniker will be revealed on Christmas Eve as a Christmas present to the actor from himself.
