    Question Vincent and Theo association? (Van Gogh)

    When you hear the sibset Vincent and Theo, do you think of the Van Gogh brothers?
    I'd assume most people probably don't even know Vincdnt Van Gogh had a brother, but I'm quite curious if my assumptions are true.
    Also, if you do, how do you feel about Theodore rather than using his actual name, Theodorus? Would that be better or the same?

    I didn't know Van Gogh had a brother, so I didn't notice the connection. Maybe an art historian would but I don't think it's an issue in the long run. I would definitely go with Theodore, as I think it goes better with Vincent overall.

    I did think of them but I doubt most people would. It's not a bad association for me, so wether it Theo, Theodore, Theodorus, Theobald, etc. it wouldn't change anything for me.

    I knew he had a brother, but didn't remember his name so I didn't see it.
