- Personal experiences with the name Aloysius: | Edit
My father claimed his middle name was simply the letter A, no other letters. I had no reason to doubt him until I did a search on his father, dad's Sr. I came to find out that grand dad's middle name was infact Aloysius. So therefore, dad being his jr., meant that he had mislead me all my life. I never confronted him on this. Let dad be ashamed of his own name. SMH. Too bad really.
