Did you know that Martin Luther King's father's MIDDLE name was self-selected? He officially changed his name from Martin King, after a lengthy stay in Germany, during which he became highly impressed with Martin Luther's life and work. Thus, we celebrate the famous German Reformer's name as well on this holiday.
