Slight Tangent

Posted by John Camachi on January 15, 2000

I'm hoping not to curve this educational and fun forum but I have an arguement to solve with friends.
Call it a phrase or a technicality but does anyone really know the truth about what constitutes someones name (phrase)to being a "junior" vs. 11 (the second).
I was told that the American rules are not the same as the England rules. If your first name only is the same as your parent but your middle name is different then your are a "junior".
But, if your first and middle names are the same as your parent then you're considered 11 (the second).
Please help. And forgive me if I pivoted too far.
