  • Maybe the first mom didn't want a Jr and the second mom was okay with it.

  • I think it'd be okay. People naturally assume the older of thr brothers to have the name of the father but ppl get used to it. Not a big deal

  • I don't know. My SO && I have discussed this before when we were discussing whether or not we were going to have more children after we get married. He said his ex-wife wanted to name their son a jr. but he didn't want to. So she told him that if they ever split up && he had another son that he couldn't make him a jr because that was his 1st son's birth right. However, he said if we ever had a son he wants him to be jr. I doubt we will have any more children, but even if we did I don't like to whole jr. concept, so our son wouldn't be a jr. Anyway, I don't know how all that works but I guess normally it is the 1st born son's "birth right" to be the jr. if there is going to be one.

  • It doesn't matter. I think typically, the first boy is the legacy. But I have heard more than once of the 2nd or 3rd boy taking the Dad's name, even in the same family.
