How does a person get two first names like Ron Paul? Better yet, how does a family get a first name as its last name (The Paul’s). Did some ancestor, with a name like Paul Wackowitch, just drop his last name and start using his first name as his last name. I know that some slaves took the names of their masters, but I don’t think Ron Paul has any slavery on his branch of the family tree (I might be wrong though).
It’s just difficult to trust somebody with two first names. When you read their name, it makes me wonder if I read it correctly. Is it really Paul Ron? Am I looking at one of those last-name-first things? Did somebody just forget to type the dude’s last name and it’s really “Ron Paul SomethingorOther?”
