|There was a brief discussion here about the use of Jr./Sr or I/II/III after a name. Some people seemed to think that it's part of the name, but it's not and can be changed at any time. I would challenger anyone who thinks otherwise to find a birth certificate for a John Doe, Sr. - no one is born with that kind of name, they add it later in life when they have a son they decide to name after themselves. And then there's always Geroge Foreman, who has 5 sons named George and not a Roman numeral among them.|
The other thing is that, other than royalty, in my experience this seems to be an entirely male affectation. I could be wrong on that, but I've never heard of a Mary Doe, Jr.
