By the way I also have a brother named John and used to have an Uncle John and I have a nephew that is named John David. My grandfather was also named John Henry.

Heh. I have two brothers named John (one's a step), a grandfather, and a son. A grandson named Ian (Irish for John). My DIL's family has lots of Johns, too, so her kids have multiple Uncle (and great uncle) Johns. It gets confusing.

arrete - my son John (whom I call Juanito) was named after my grandfather, who cried when he found out. Grandfather died soon afterwards, so I'm glad we named the kid after him.
