"Maybe they don't have middle names some people don't.but if they do what do you think they are?"
Maybe Dean's is Eric after his dad's middle name or Michael? Dean Eric Winchester? Um..Sam's could be Keith? Like when he used it in Free To Be You and Me. Samuel Keith Winchester..um..i hope not.

Maybe Dean's middle name is Mary's last before she got married. You know like when in Smallville when Mrs. Kent gave the Clark to Supermen. It was her last name before she got married. Sam might be Colt, you know after Samuel Colt. 4  out of 9 found this valuable. Do you?

Since Sam and Dean are both names that Mary chose because of her parents, I wouldn't be surprised if they chose middle names that corresponded with John's side of the family. 8  out of 8 found this valuable. Do you?

Mary's last name before she got married was Campbell. Samuel Colt was the guy from the 1800's who made the colt.

I've always gone with Dean Matthew and Samuel John. At least that's what I use in my fanfic! 5  out of 8 found this valuable. Do you?

Good question why dont we know their middle names? we know everything else about them don't we? we should know their middle names too.we however DO know they where named after their grandparents(as discovered in season 5)but their is still nomention of their middle names. If we dont know now after 5 years, we might never know. 1  out of 2 found this valuable. Do you?

I always figured Sam's middle name was Frances cos it got a mention in S1 and I think the reaction fit pretty well for it. For dean he's the eldest so I usually say it'd be John but I gave him Charles in a fic, I wanted something germanic and fitting and it felt right cos I worked it in that that was his grandad on John's side name but I kinda agree I can see it being Matthew or Michael easily too. 1  out of 1 found this valuable.

I saw a post on Pinterest for Sam's birthday that his name is Samuel Campbell Winchester. That's after Mary's father, so it stands to reason that since Dean is named after Mary's mother his middle name would be Mary's mother's maiden name. I don't know if I've ever heard Deanna's maiden name mentioned. Do you find this valuable?

Hey Briasolo,

Welcome to the Wiki! We all hope you enjoy posting here!

I'm one of the mods so if you need any help, feel free to contact me.

And, just because Sam's middle name is from Mary's family that doesn't mean Dean's would have to be - in fact it's as likely to be after John's family to allow his family names some representation...

I like the idea of Dean John Winchester myself :)

I don't think Deanna's maiden name has ever been mentioned on-screen. Maybe it's on a script somewhere?

I've been using Dean Henry Winchester. Maybe a family tradition of using their paternal grandfather's first name as a middle name? Perhaps Henry's father was Eric Winchester?
I've also been using Samuel John Winchester.

"I've been using Dean Henry Winchester. Maybe a family tradition of using their paternal grandfather's first name as a middle name? Perhaps Henry's father was Eric Winchester?

Somebody asked J2 about this at a con in recent years. If I recall correctly, J2 were their usual hilarious selves on the subject, but the 'serious' answer was that the boys' middle names have not been 'revealed' by the writers. Then , Jared chimed in that, in his opinion, Sam's middle name is "f*&^in'" because he's Sam F*&^in' Winchester. And Jensen rolled his eyes and the crowd went wild, and that was the end of that.

Regarding the "Francis" thing in S1, that wasn't Sam's middle name. There was a deleted scene where Sam was on the phone getting info on a case, and the name on his fake badge was 'Frances" and the person on the other end was confused because that's a woman's name (esp with that spelling). Then when Sam got back to the table where Dean was waiting, he complained about Dean having given him a badge with a girl name. And so naturally Dean mocked him for his drink order and called him Frances, which stayed in while the rest of it got deleted, thus having Dean kind of randomly calling Sam by a weird name.

I did a lot of research on this and the most I could find was a tweet from Jim Michaels (Producer/Director for Supernatural) and he (jokingly) said their middle names were Samuel James and Dean Michaels.
Obviously a play on his own name (Jim=James and his last name is Michaels) but personally I like that. Plus it makes the whole Dean being Michael's vessel a nice spin.
