How did you choose your children’s names?

In the past, as in most families around the world, the first born son is named after his father, so our first born had to be named for him Salvatore A. Bianco, but I realized he would be stuck like I was for most of my young life with “Junior”, being my name was after my fathers. I thought about it, and said let’s not call him Junior, but Trey, a name that didn’t exist at that time, but I felt it’s meaning of the number ‘three” in Italian and French, was good enough, as he was the third Salvatore in our family! Well, today there are over 50,000 families using it, and still counting. So, when we had another son, well that was easy and to keep following tradition, we named him after my wife’s father, Michael. It was a very long time later that I chose a name for my third son as his mother had no interest. I thought and thought, and finally after seeing “Love Story”, and since I felt that this son’s name, which should be after my name, but as my name was already used for my first son, tradition was filled. So now this son could be different, so I named him after the young lover, Christian Montague, one that William Shakespeare created for Love Story, and although this next son did not actually come from a love story, it wasn’t a break away from tradition, making him special and it has proven so! My only sorrow is that I wasn’t there for him all the time he was growing up! It wasn’t my fault and that’s another story I’ll keep to myself for now!!! My only regret was and is that we didn’t have a girl!!! All three of my sons have become very successful and I’m proud of each of them!
