Asked in Punctuation and Capitalization
Do you capitalize little John or big John?
If you are informally referring to someone in your family, it is not necessary except for emphasis. If it is the proper name, say for a character on TV or in a book, yes then you'd capitalize it. At our family picnic, big John found little John down at the lake. Big John and Little John enjoyed entertaining people with their clown act.
Who was the first to write his name on the declaration of independence and why did he write his name so big?
John Hancock is probably one of the most famous of signatures on the Constitution. He wrote it so large according to many sources so that King George would be able to read it without the need to put on his spectacles and so that John Hancock's name would be easily recognizable as one of the founders of these Independent but United States of America. To this day you may still hear people say to "put your John Hancock" right here meaning to add your signature to something.
