It is unclear whether Culkin genuinely plans to change his middle name to Macaulay Culkin, but there was no evidence to suggest he's had a last-minute change of heart.

Culkin's quest to find a new middle name started last month. In a post on his lifestyle website BunnyEars, the 38-year-old wrote that he thought his middle name was "something dumb."

"Larry? Orange? Honestly, I can't even remember it," he joked.

The actor asked visitors to his website to pick a "better" name "so I can go down to the courthouse and explain to a judge why I need to change my middle name to something cool."

Options included his own name, "Macaulay Culkin," which garnered over 60,000 votes. "TheMcRibIsBack" was also on the table, as was "SharkWeek" and "Publicity Stunt." His girlfriend picked the latter, Culkin told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.

Kieran, his brother's first name, was another choice. Culkin told Fallon his brother had suggested that.

Culkin invited members of the public to cast their votes until Christmas Eve, "so I can wake up to a wonderful present from everyone. Sure, I might have gold plated watercraft, and chrome plated invisibility cloaks," the actor joked, "but all I want for Christmas is a new middle name."

Prior to announcing his new middle name, he told Fallon his current middle name is Carson.

"So, I was staring my passport recently and stuff, and I was looking over my middle name," he told the presenter. "And I thought, like, you know, I should probably spruce up my name a little bit.

"I've been polling friends, family, everything. So, if somebody comes up to me at the airport, and says, 'Excuse me, are you Macaulay Culkin?' I would say, 'Well, Macaulay Culkin is my middle name.'"

The actor launched his BunnyEars website in March. He told Fallon it was "kind of like Goop," Gwyneth Paltrow's luxury lifestyle platform, combined with the satirical website The Onion.

"The idea for Bunny Ears launched from the mind of world-famous celebrity turned world-famous recluse, Macaulay Culkin," the BunnyEars website states. "The foundations of the Bunny Ears brand are Proclivities, Diet, Exploration, and Upscale Culture," its About Us section reads.

Earlier this month, Culkin made headlines for appearing as Home Alone character Kevin McCallister in a Google advert.
