Gaining Names?


Loyal Member
I have a great Uncle Frederick Walton born 21 Jan 1872, on his baptism he was just Frederick and on his just received birth certificate he was just Frederick:(
On his wedding in 1880, Great Yarmouth he is shown as Frederick John Michael Waltono_O
So is this normal to gain middle names!
I believe these 2 people are one and the same person - even fathers name on marriage cert - even same area of London on 1881 census.
I'm just that little bit unsure:confused:
