I was named for my Mom (first and middle name), and it turned out to be a headache! I was quickly given a nickname with in my family's circle of friends, however throughout school, I was Anne (my Mom's name). I again took my nickname when my Mom and I worked at the same business, however my legal name stayed the same. At one point, we lived at the same address, worked at the same business and had the same name (although I was called something else), so when we checked out our credit history, my Mom had 2 of every credit card, and I had no credit history!

I would never do it to my kid, boy or girl. As to why girls aren't Jr. I just don't know!
