    As mcdonak1 mentioned, there are the mix ups. When I was pregnant with my oldest, my boss pulled me aside one day and told me that he truly regretted making his son a junior. There were credit report mix-ups, mail mix-ups, ... despite the fact that they lived in different cities. I appreciated his telling me, despite the fact that we knew we weren't going to make our child a jr, because it was one more data point against it for when we were pressured by family.

    My step-father is III, they used the first name for my step-brother but gave him his own middle name so that he did not become IV. He goes by his middle name, always has. My ex-BIL was III, despite he was a lot further down the line than the third generation to carry his name. He and my sister broke tradition, much to his mother's fury. She kept calling my oldest nephew "Little ___" despite repeatedly being corrected by my sister that the baby's name was Robby. Eventually, her MIL got over it.
