"The only guys I know with this name also have a Dad who was too stupid to realize that if you give your kid the same name as yourself it makes it confusing as heck to coexist.
So to avoid the confusion they do the next stupid thing and call their kid Junior which means ?a person with low rank or status compared with others?.
Then everyone thinks the kid?s real name is Junior and forget the ?amazing? fact that the kid has the same name as his Dad which makes the whole stupid mess totally pointless!!
Such a STUPID and NARCISSISTIC thing to do to your kid!!" Dec. 23, 2020:
"A rather demeaning put-down word. Why would you name your kid this?" Dec. 22, 2020:

"Often appended to a person's name to distinguish him or her from a senior relative of theirs (for instance, Douglas Fairbanks Sr. (1883-1939) and his son Douglas Fairbanks Jr. (1909-2000)). Just like senior is often abbreviated to 'Sr.' or 'Snr.', junior is often shortened to 'Jr.' or 'Jnr.'" Nov. 1, 2009:
