  • No he is not. He has to have his Dads complete name. To be a Jr. I always thought Jr had to be on the birth certificate to be a Jr.

  • Nope. IN order to be a Junior: the first, middle, and last names have to match.

    Such as Ronald Perry Smith Sr. (Father) Ronald Perry Smith, Jr. (Son) and if there was another Ronald Perry Smith II, (Grandson).
    My husband and his father and his father's father all share the same 1st name and last name, but middle names are different so no Senior Junior.

  • No, he is not a junior.
    My ex husband is Michael William, his oldest son is Michael Christopher. They are not Jr and Sr ,as they have different middle names.
