When we named our son Samuel, we knew about grandpa Samuel, and my wife's Uncle Sam, but I never made a connection to my Uncle Keith. He was simply Uncle Keith to me, that was just how I knew him.
Then one day I had the opportunity to introduce my son to him. Uncle Keith got that so familiar, square jawed smile, and with a twinkle in his eye said, "You know my name is Samuel too!"
I will never forget that day of the realization that I had an "Uncle Sam", and how pleased he seemed to be that my son's name was also Samuel.
