Interesting, Roderick-

I just stumbled upon this in the context of son John Lloyd Wright and his "Lincoln Logs":

"But it turns out John Lloyd followed his fatherís example in another way besides their career path. John Lloyd wasnít born John Lloyd ó his birth name was John Kenneth Wright. Obviously, being known as John Lloyd Wright had advantages for an architect seeking commissions."

From Princeton online:

That I have never heard. Didn't do him much good, did it?

Thanks Roderick, didn't know the tradition. My Quaker grandmother and her second generation Welsh husband in Iowa were fully assimilated into the maiden name custom.

Lloyd Wright's name was Frank Lloyd Wright Jr., wasn't it? He did all right for himself.

Palli, I refuse to read any more of your posts on this thread. Every time you mention someone, I spend time searching the internet and reading about some fascinating person I haven't encountered before. It's seriously eating into my solitaire time...

Archfan- this thread has been a great excuse to reread sources and follow leads into connections I hadn't recognized before. Glad you enjoyed the interconnections too. Renewed my pride of place also...
