For many it is probably THE Christmas classic par excellence. “Kevin – home alone” flickers across German screens every year during the Christmas season. Leading actor Kevin McCallister became world famous with the role at a young age. However, few people know what Macaulay Culkin’s real name is. The actor wanted to change that a few years ago. But because he didn’t seem to have enough ideas, he trusted his followers.
In a vote on the Internet, fans could vote for their favorite version of the new middle name. What came out of it, not many know.

On Christmas Day 2018, he then solemnly announced the result on Twitter. His middle name is his first and last name. The de facto name of the actor is Macaulay Macaulay Culkin Culkin.
