Change your name just because you named a kid after you you. Don't you already named a kid after you. You've definitely got an inflated sense of yourself. Yeah you know the the tendency to name children after ancestors after their after their genealogical legacy or heritage is really at the core of what created middle names. 'cause morgan is the Is a family name. is that right. Yeah family family surname. Yeah you know. The romans had three names often guys. Julius caesar in they would be. There would be a pre norman which was like your personal name. Guys was julius. Caesar's equivalent of john. Ken and then. Julius is your noman your family name. Oh that that was the equivalent of the surname and the third name which is often what we remember today in the cicero or whatever that was called the cog newman which originally it was kind of nickname later it became kind of supplemental hereditary name to distinguish different branches of the family. You know how you would you know. I have this problem today. i just. I had my brother's family visiting me. That's the that's also the jennings's and then my parents came over from scam to go to the ball game with us a neighbor the jennings is too so i can't tell my sister had the jennings's were staying with us. I because i'm the jennings's so you can say the olympic jennings says or the utah jennings right exactly so. This was. The roman cognitive carcinoma became kind of the equivalent of that. Or if you did something awesome in your life your cognition could become a sign of that like if you wanna battle you could become magnus maximus or something. So your dad is ken. Jennings junior you. Are ken jennings jeopardy jeopardy us is a do you have a do you ever use. No i mean there are some that rod roderick long winters. There's some there's some nicknames that people might apply to me but i'm not going to adopt a myself and as a result you can have. It became fashionable because fads always sprawl to have multiple cog no mona. Where if you accomplished multiple things you would just keep adding names and this seems a little odd to us to have the family name in the middle and then a series of kind of descriptive or delimiting titles. But it's this is the exact same system that's used today and a lot of east african cultures action so it's apparently. There's something intuitive about it. Classroom these bantu people did not get it from reading about cicero well. In hungary the last name is first and that's true in korea to yeah and And china and japan as well. Oh the last name is i really. Oh i didn't realize that. About japan and china. I mean you can say it in. It's commonly anglicised especially for japanese. People would say well t- chiro suzuki but but if they were saying it in the old fashioned way the date of way they would say suzuki each year. You put certain. I i did not know. Maybe that's part of the asian ethos of putting family before self. You literally do it. I wonder about the hungarians because it's not something that happens anywhere else in europe but then of course they aren't from europe tone gary. Don't get me started the hon. Hunted hungry is for hon. Right right for honey honey. I'm home. I'm from franz composer franz liszt or list frogs you would call me since we're both on gary and hello to she halo to she.
