Hugh Grant's Middle Name Is Mungo and People Are Losing It
Yes, it really is Hugh Mungo Grant
Twitter users have just now discovered that the 60-year-old actor's middle name is Mungo, meaning his name is Hugh Mungo Grant.
In Grant's defence, his full, legal name — Hugh John Mungo Grant — partially ruins the joke by dropping his first middle name into the mix. Nonetheless, social media users are having a virtual parade about this discovery.
The lovely fact-checking wizards over at Snopes have conveniently dug up a video of Hugh Mungo giving his full name for a legal proceeding in 2011. You can watch that below, where you'll also find Twitter's reactions.

Hugh John Mungo Grant.
I mean, they tossed the "John" in there so that he wouldn't get teased as a kid.
Methinks they should've dropped the "Mungo" instead.
So it seems that Hugh Grant's middle name is Mungo.This is where I draw the line. Sorry Mr Grant, with a name like that, I cannot have a crush on you, floppy hair and posh accent notwithstanding.— Aparna Mitra (@aparnamitra0) April 13, 2021
The lesson in all this is to NOT google the middle name of Ralph Fiennes.
