"Frederick is the name of my Father, me, and my oldest son. I hope one day to have a grandson named Frederick too, but I will of course leave that up to my son. Frederick was also the middle name of my grandfather and great grandfather and if I recall correctly the first name of my great-great grandfather." Nov. 19, 2017:
