In my passport there are 2 names in 'given names'. During 40 years of flying the tickets have only shown the first of the given names. That has never caused any problems.

Irish passports may be different, but UK passports just say "Given names", they don't list first and middle names separately. As hans said, airline documentation doesn't usually use the middle name.

However, if you're worried (and I know how that feels - I hate printing my own boarding pass in case security can't read it) just contact your airline and clarify it.
