In Greek tradition there is a strict system for naming children. The firstborn male gets the father's father's name; the second gets the mother's father's name.

Urm... so what happens if the father's father's name and the mother's father's name are the same? Does the second son get the same first name as the first — or is the naming scheme not so strict after all?

    Remember it is a tradition, one based on obligation within the family, but not the law. And naming the first son after his grandfathers’ shared name fulfills the obligation to both.
