    So my cousin just had twin boys and he decided to name one after himself. He's also a Junior, so the new kid is going to be a 3rd. Am I the only one who thinks this is a dumb idea? The other kid is going to be left out. Plus on top of that, his father died in a car accident 15 years ago so that makes the one twin's name extra special. This has to be the stupidest idea for a name I've ever seen.

    Why don't you just drown the other one and then you won't have to be concerned about this.

    People naming kids after themselves is dumb in general. I know of a WOMAN who named her daughter after herself. :wtf:

    Let me see if I understand what you wrote.

    Your cousin had twins and he named on after himself. Ok, I get that. The kid will be something III. I get that too.

    Then you said his father (meaning the twins father) died 15 years before they were born. I don't see how that happened unless the sperm was saved, fertilized embryos were saved or mom was cheating and nobody is good at math.

    Please explain.

    Your cousin is an asshole.

    Not for the name, but for adding to the population in general.

    My initial reaction was to wonder if it would be all that different if your cousin had only had one son, named the baby after himself, and then had a second son a year later. But I guess I kind of see your point. He's got two babies and he's giving one baby 'preferential' status by naming it after himself. In the other scenario when he names the first baby, there's no guarantee that he's going to have a second son to name or even a second child. I probably would have waited until the third son to recycle my name (if I did it at all).
