Francois the Postman said:
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".

And congrats to the McEwens.
And let's not forget those classic rhyming names like Ronald MacDonald

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.
