Namesake
A NAMESAKE is a person named after another. _Namesake_ may also refer to a thing, such as a company, place, ship, building, or concept, named after a person. In general, the second recipient of a name, named for the first, is said to be the _namesake_ of the first. The attribution can, however, go in the opposite direction, with _namesake_ referring to the original holder of the name (the eponym ). The word is first recorded in the mid-seventeenth century, and probably comes from the phrase "for name's sake". USAGENaming a child after a relative, friend, or well-known person is a common practice in the English-speaking world. When a son is named for his father, it is customary (primarily in the United States ) to add "Jr.", "III'", or another name suffix to the name of the son (and sometimes "Sr." or a prior number to the father's name), in order to distinguish between individuals; especially if both father and son become famous, as in the case of poet, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. , and his son, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. , an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court . Sometimes the "Jr." or "Sr." suffix is applied even when the child's legal name differs from that of the parent. One notable example is that of the singer Hiram King Williams, known professionally as Hank Williams , and his son Randall Hank Williams, known professionally as Hank Williams Jr
