When a man is named after his father, who is a "Jr.," he is referred to as "the third," which was originally written with either the numeric 3rd or the Roman numeral III, but is now almost exclusively used with the latter. The suffix II, which means "the second," is used by a man who is called after his grandpa, uncle, or cousin. A woman who is named for three people is called a "triple threat"; one who is named for four people is called a "quadruple threat."
A man who is not related to the speaker by blood but who is known as "the third guy" or "the third member of the trio" is usually an assistant to a president or chairman of the board, such as the CEO of a corporation. He may also be a high-level executive in charge of a division or department within the company. The term "third party" is used to describe someone other than the president or chairman of the board or its staff members who can affect the decision-making process. For example, if a presidential candidate refuses to debate her opponents, they will be described as acting like a "third party" and the candidate will be said to have "weakened" her position.
A man who is not related to the speaker by blood but who is known as "the third guy down" at his job is usually an employee within a company's bureaucracy or management structure. He may also be a low-level manager responsible for a group of employees.
The wife of a man who uses a suffix follows her name with the same suffix: Mr. and Mrs. John M. Baxter, Jr.
Baxter, Jr., is the only possible spelling for someone else's name. In this case, it is spelled Baxter.
In English law, there is no such thing as an "undivided third". If two people own something in equal share, they both have a third share. If one person owns everything, they have sole ownership of the whole. There are only two types of divisions of property: absolute and conditional. An absolute division means that the divider has no right to any part of the property divided. The only option left to the divider is to accept the whole estate or nothing at all. A conditional division means that the divider has the right to some portion of the property divided. The owner receiving the division can agree to these terms or not. If they do not, a court will make the decision about what portion of the estate will be awarded to which party.
In conclusion, there is no such thing as an "undivided third" under English law. If two people own something, they both own a third of it. If one person owns everything, they own all of it.
III: The son of Jr. or II. The grandpa and father can continue to use Sr. and Jr., or the digits, respectively. The suffix III is used after Jr. or II and, like following numeral suffixes, is not limited to a single familial line. For example, John Smith, Jr., was called "Jack" but also had a brother named Michael who was called Mike.
There are three ways to say that someone is third in line to something: they are in charge of handling things if their two older siblings die (or otherwise become disabled); they have an equal share with their younger sibling; or they are next in line after their younger sibling.
People often think that the only way to say that one is third in line is by using the word "third." Actually, any of the above phrases can also be used to describe someone third in line. For example, they could be called "Jr.'s hands" or "II's eyes," depending on which sibling they were referring to.
The prefix tri- means three and it is used as a number suffix to indicate a person's rank, position, or level of involvement in something. With people, it is used after a name to indicate that they are third in line for something. For example, she is third in line behind Jane and Jill for a job opening. He is third in line behind Adam and Andy for a promotion at work.
Duo is Latin for the number two, but trio is the musical term for three. The numeral prefixes in Latin are as follows: 1-uni, 2-bi/duo, 3-tri, 4-quadri/quart, 5-quinque/quint, 6-sex/sext, 7-sept, 8-oct, 9-nonus/novem, 10-dec/de. C.
