Is there any “proper” way to sign your name.
Let’s make up a name, say “Oliver Wendell Holmes.”
He has a son, whom he names “Oliver Wendell Holmes, jr.”
Dad goes by “Ollie.” Son goes by “Wendell.”
Dad signs his name as Oliver W. Holmes.
Son signs his O. Wendell Holmes, jr.
Is there any point to the “jr” since they are not using the same signature names.
I realize it would be necessary if they were spelling out the entire name, but how about in the example above.
Also, is there any there any kind of standard of abandoning the “jr” tag, once the old guy is history? (I seem to recall having read something like this in “Abby” one time.)
