Re: Thoughts - Inititials versus given name

My ex-husband's father was "R.T." and HIS mother was "U.T.," and her father was "R.S." I know that their names stood for absolutely nothing, but just like in the case Melvyn mentioned, when R.T. went into the military, they made him take a name, so he became "Robert Thomas" Hill. I never heard of any of this until I moved to California ... Michiganders didn't really use the initials for first name "thing."
