Subject: Re: names question

When my father was born, in March, 1913, my grandfather named him Woodrow

Wilson Davis, and that is the name that went on his birth certificate.

He apparently had not consulted my grandmother about this, and she was

*not* happy...said she did not intend to have any child of hers named

Woodrow Wilson...they compromised and gave Daddy his paternal

grandmother's maiden name for a middle he was Woodrow Grayson

Davis instead of Woodrow Wilson. Incidentally, he stopped using Woodrow

before he was out of grade school, switched the order of the names, and

went by Grayson for the rest of his life.
