    Wow, I have such a similar story with the name Elias. My paternal-grandfather's name was Elias Theodore and he went by either E.T. or Ted. If he was signing something legally important than it was E. Theodore. He was named after his maternal grandfather. Funny thing is that I'm now considering using Elias as a fn for a future son (it's also my dad's mn). My other grandfather was named Timothy.

    E.T.'s father my great-grandpa was named Oscar. I'll have to look up the others. I'm thinking one was Charles.
