    No it isn’t – the “Junior” does not appear on his birth certificate in much the same way as Mrs Bloggins across the road is not styled as such in official documents.

  3. Robert Downey Junior is *named* Robert Downey – same as his father. The senior/junior/2nd/3rd/etc are just used to distinguish between them.
