Reply to: Junior versus II??? by Marieke van Camp
The child's name has to be *exactly* the same as the relative after whom he has been name, in order for him to be a junior, II, III, etc.

Which means that both the first name and the middle name have to be the same as the relative's after whom he has been named.

If the father is John Charles Doe and the son is John Robert Doe, then the son is not "John Jr.". He is merely "John R." (or, "J.R.", if you prefer that nickname) as opposed to "John C.".
