How long should your name include Jr?


Should the Jr ever be dropped from a persons name? If so when? When you have kids of your own? When Sr dies? What is the protocol here?

It's part of your name.

You don't just drop it.

This.

Why does there have to be a protocol and an "accepted way" of doing everything ?

As a III I am proud to be named after two great men. I wear that badge with pride. Better believe they'll be a IV.

Sucks to be one of those girls, but one of them is going to have the name.

OK OK I was just wondering. We don't do the Jr thing in our family and I know very few Jr's

I just find it odd that a 69 yr old man can be called Jr.

I hope my son thinks this way when he is older. I was a II and don't plan on dropping it. Serious business, before I asked my wife to marry me, I asked if there would be an issue naming our first son the III. She had no problems. Do you go by Trey perhaps?

I go by the middle name while my father and grandfather went by the first name.

I have also asked my girlfriend the same question about continuing the name.
