When my first son was born, I refused to make him a "III". The buck stopped here.
Every one deserves their own name and their own identity.
But to show you how crazy my ex's family is, his brother wanted to name his sone JGM, III, even though my ex's brother's name wasn't the "jr". Crazy family, indeed.
