Giving the first son the same name as the father is something that can be found in many cultures, even more in years gone by. And before Napoleon made us pick proper surnames, "Jimmy" would be known locally as "Jimmy, son of Jimmy", to make things ueber clear to the guys on the village green that you weren't talking about "Jimmy". Who had been, of course, also "a son of Jimmy" in his days.

So there are plenty "Jimmy McJimmy" "Jimmy O'Jimmy" "Jimmy Jimmyson" "Jimmy Jimmyszoon", etc, to be found all over Europe.

It's a habit that is dying out, now you pick something "unique" that even the hippies in the 60s were too sane for. But people don't always realize how far back these same-name-as-the-father lines can go if you "keep the habit".

My parents unbeknownst to them revived a family tradition as a technical two fingers up to the Roman Church, when they picked my granddad's name. But I was stunned to see that family name in a straight line all the way back throughout the official Dutch records, to around 1600. There is something nice about that.

And congrats to the McEwens.

Burnt-out clyclist Ullrich to become father again

just weeks after being diagnosed as suffering from burn-out and denying he has an alcohol problem.

The 36-year-old and his wife Sara are expecting a second child to join their three-year-old son Max.

"Yes, we are expecting our second baby," Ullrich told Bild on Sunday.

"We do not want to know what it will be. We don't know if it is a boy of a girl, the main thing is that the child is healthy."

This will be Ullrich's third child having already had a seven-year-old daughter with his ex-girlfriend.

:eek: A... man who rides on team Katusha... is... married to/dating a woman named Katusha?

Well... I could imagine Katusha being a Russian name... but... still!
I've long been a bit confused by the fact that CAS can refer to both:

According to Sportwereld. be, her name is Ekaterina Agandeeva.

Edit: Apparently Katusha is a nickname for Ekaterina, like Kate or Kathy for Katherine.

Lance Armstrong is expanding his family for the 5th time with the birth of "Olivia Marie Armstrong" last night. Armstrong on Twitter announced the birth of his daughter, the second of his relationship with Anna Hansen. The couple already had in June last year to a son called Max.
The seven-time Tour de France winner has three children with his ex-wife Kristin Richards, Luke, now 11, and twins Isabella and Grace, nine. The three were fertilized in vitro, while Max and Olivia Marie have been by natural means.
The Armstrong saga, who supposed to have survived life threatening testicular cancer in 1996, is telling that he could not have children after suffering this disease. However, thanks to him donating sperm before undergoing chemotherapy could become the father of his 3 first born, however his fourth and fifth child has not used any artificial insminación process.
