On this matter of Jr, Sr, II, III, IV, etc.

TO share with the readers the ethical rules, accepted use of name suffixes in case you want to comply with universally-practiced rule. Learn when to attach the generational suffixes “II” or “III” or “IV” after your baby’s name, or what the difference is between a “II” and a “Jr.”

Rule #1: Parent & Child with same name = Sr. + Jr. This one is pretty easy if you will take “same name” seriously, which too many Filipinos don’t. In the Philippines, a baby is automatically given the surname of the mother as its middle name. Preciosa Burgos Santos marries Rigoberto Regas Ulong. Their son is named Rigoberto Santos Ulong Jr. Wrong. He can be a Jr. only if his name were exactly the same as his father, making the baby, Rigoberto Regas Ulong, Jr. 

Any parent and child with the exact same legal name can be referred to as “(Name), Sr.” and “(Name), Jr.” President John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier named their son John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr. If they chose to name their son John Bouvier Kennedy, their son cannot be a Jr.

Rule: In order to use suffixes, names must be exactly the same. Unless the full name of two related individuals is entirely, exactly the same (first name, any and all middle names, and last name), then they cannot correctly use suffixes. 

For Antonio Fuentes Trillanes IV, whose father’s name is Antonio Floranza Trillanes (married to Estrelita Fuentes) the suffix, “IV” is superfluous and out-of-order. Sonny is simply Antonio Fuentes Trillanes. Not “IV”. Now, if he were named Antonio Floranza Trillanes, he can add “IV”.

But only if there are 2 others (Jr., III) named Antonio Floranza Trillanes in his family. So, legally, today, he is Antonio Fuentes Trillanes. No Jr., I, II, III nor IV needed. 

Rule: For more than two same-named Individuals, use roman numeral suffixes. What if there are more than two same-named individuals in the President Kennedy family? Then, they can use Roman numeral after the Sr. and the Jr.; III, IV, etc. suffixes after their name, to designate the order in which they were born.

This is most evident on death notices where the deceased, say, Procopino Xesto Rasos is a Sr. and the list includes the Procopino Rasos V, VI, VII, etc. all with different middle names. The family was ignorant of the right to suffixes.

Rule: Roman numeral suffixes are allowed to skip generations. If a person is named after an ancestor such as a famous great grandparent, the roman numeral suffixes still apply. The elder can be called “(Name) I” and the younger can be called “(Name) II” even if they existed decades apart.

Let us imagine that a century ago, there was a man named Barnabas Ludwig Johnson, who had a son named Barnabas Astredo Johnson. They would not be “Sr.” and “Jr.”, or “I” and “II”. But if Barnbas Astredo Johnson were to name his son Barnabas Ludwig Johnson, after the child’s grandfather who lived a century ago, then Barnabas Astredo Johnson’s son would be Barnabas Ludwig Johnson II, and the original Barnabas would become Barnabas Ludwig Johnson I. And, of course, if Barnabas Ludwig Johnson II has a son of the same name, that son could be called Barnabas Ludwig Johnson III.

There is no rule saying that females cannot use suffixes like “Sr.”/”Jr.” and/or Roman numerals, but they usually do not do so, because females typically change their last name when they marry. But using Sr and Jr. are a great help when others need to reach one or the other.

Therefore, if a woman imparts her legal name to her daughter, the mother and daughter can be called “Sr.” and “Jr.” if they so wish. Should the daughter marry, and legally change her name however, the mother and daughter would cease to be “Sr.” and “Jr.”, as they no longer have the same exact legal name. 

In short, suffixes’ main use is if there is another (in the same family) with the same exact first, middle, and last name. No need to worry about exact same names outside of the family. Consider how many Juan A. Cruz or Juana A. Cruz are out there in every corner of the Philippines.

Let us imagine that the wealthy Beavis Winston Purple falls in love with the equally wealthy Angelique Faversham. His wife decides to take his surname, and legally becomes Angelique Faversham Purple. Beavis and Angelique have a daughter, whom they also name Angelique Faversham Purple. Mother Angelique can be called “Sr.” and/or “I”, while daughter Angelique can be called “Jr.” and/or “II”. 

At least, until the daughter becomes a punk rocker and has her name legally changed to just “Purple”. In which case, following the rule, even the mother will no longer need the suffix.
