I was named for my great-grandfather. My older brother and I have the first names that our Dad wished he’d had. He was not going to give his to any of his sons, and he didn’t believe in the ‘junior’ routine anyway. Your son is NOT a new edition of you.
My Dad’s family was overflowing with Thomas Robertses. Lots of ‘em. I don’t know where my middle name, Scott came from, though. I’m not aware of any other Scott in the family tree.
