According to Wikipedia its cause women are less likely to have the exact same name down to the middle name and cause of marriage losing the last name https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suffix...ational_titles
I would assume the only cases why people give their kids the exact same name is so they have a legacy name and since women wouldn't likely retain their last name theres no reason to make sure that happens


(get well from whatever ban that is soon!)

damn us women

My fiancťe isnít a direct junior, but she does share the same name as her aunt, with the same spelling. Of course they have different last names because of patriarchy, but thatís one of the few times Iíve ever seen this happen.

Hope your ban isnít too long =( NipplesAndToes

My mom has the same first name as her mom, but a different middle name. Close enough. I have the same middle name as that first name.

My dad is a junior.

My mom and grandmother have middle names that start with the letter 'K' so my middle name does as well and I picked one for my daughter too. I like that better than doing a junior, when I worked with a credit card company I saw too many instances where people that were Jr's or Sr's got their credit screwed up by one or the other. Credit agencies have issues differentiating between them, even when the SSN are different and the addresses are too.

Me and my three siblings all start with K. So my middle child got a K name as tribute

Most of my family on my mother's side name starts with a D. I am apparently the only child of hers that seems to want to continue the tradition. Also there are far more boy D names than girl D names.

You could always name a daughter Deanna after Troi in Star Trek.

But then you'd have a child named for a terrible character.

My mom didn't give a shit, and changed Cody to Kody for a boy lol. I have a traditionally C name too that's K instead.

I was honestly thinking of this at one point, but more so because of Walking Dead (and I have only seen Star Trek Enterprise).

Not a bad name, certainly beats Dhalia Black . . . (this was my ex's suggestion)

I thought about doing that for a name at one point, but am not sure of the name now. My name is technically gender neutral and would have been the same if I was a boy or a girl (Drew). My mother later told me that maybe she should've named Drewcilla or Drucilla or something. Which I am quite glad did not happen due to Buffy =p

I have the same name as my father (although it's spelled differently). Our name is technically unisex, but it's more common with women these days. I always thought this made me a kind of junior, though. Also, I think it's kind of neat that my parents did a cross-gender name sharing thing.

LOL, my family did the same. Specifically with the letter K (although my father was a "C"). Weird how our families were all doing the Kardashian thing, at about the same time?

So, this is a question that is going to seem kind of weird but with all the recent revelations I've personally been thinking it would be a good idea to join all the Gaf discords that I think are important and for threads and topics that interest me. And since this is my very first post in this thread, and I presently I identify as male, it's twice as awkward to ask.

So, my question is are men allowed to join your discord and if so what are the criteria of obtaining an invite?
