When I worked for the Air Force in the dim dark ages there was a Master 
Sargent - can't remember his name - who had two sons by two wives (sequential not 
concurrent) both named after himself.  But what amazes me more is our neighbor 
named John who has named his sons John and Ian (that's really John, too).

Logans don't run to juniors in this generation, though my oldest son is James 
Venable L., IV, named after my DH's older brother who was III, and his father 
who was Jr.  He has named his son James Venable V.  That grandson has joined 
the Navy and complains that they get his records mixed up with his father's, 
who spent four year in the Navy in the 70s.  

I never had a daughter, but if I had she would not have been named for me.  
Nor is my one granddaughter, thank goodness.
