    Jr. Names if you are planning on a large family

    If you named or plan on naming a son after his father (especially if that is a tradition), what if you plan on having more kids? If you end up having another boy wouldn't it that be weird?

    Just thinking out loud. I guess I never really thought about it, maybe because the families I met with a Junior only have one boy.
    Name Nerd.

    It seems perfectly normal. Most families with a Junior just name the next without a worry.

    Christopher John Jr - brother is Ryan James
    William Thomas Jr - brother is Richard Knox

    I know a family with three generations of Matthews. Jr. and III all have siblings, male and female.

    If the first son is named after the father, other sons can be named to honor different family members.

    No. It's not odd at all.

    ♀ | Helen ◊ Cora ◊ Anne ◊ Jane ◊ Caroline ◊ Catherine ◊ Gwen ◊ Georgia ◊ Elizabeth ◊ Lydia

    Not a big deal. Happens all the time.
