Is there anything you learned in the school playground?

My parents taught me how to recite my full name. But on my first day at school when other children asked me , and I gave my middle name, they thought I was being funny! So the first thing I learned at school, was just to give my 1st and last name when asked.
[I have a conventional middle name.]
Update: Thanks for the answers. I agree middle names don't serve a purpose, but most parents feel they 'have' to give their child one. I only use mine on official forms.
