They do? I'm familiar with the name changes - Abram
- but not with middle names. Middle of what? Isn't the biblical form something like A, son of B? Not the same as A Bson, just as Jim
, son of Jack
isn't the same as Jim Jackson
. But I can't recall a character who's multinamed from the start - except those children of a prophet (was it Jeremiah
? I'm rusty!) whose names were whole sentences - and I always thought they were plot devices, not real people.
I'd be interested to learn more!
