If you are naming a child after their grandfather would the child become a second?
If you name a child after its grandfather and the child and grandfather have the same surname and middle name (if any), then the child can be called "the second." However if someone in your generation (a brother or cousin) is also named after the grandfather and has the same middle and surname, that person is "the second" and your child would be "the third."
