fyi Sephardic Jews name after the living but not Ashkenazi -not out of lack of respect but do not use same name out of superstition.

It is very rare to find a Jr in Judaism.

irregardless, you will have to use some other source for verification.At that time p eriod, if the mother was not jewish and did not convert before the child's birth, the child would not be considered jewish.
recently, if the father is Jewish so is the child in very reform congregations but not the norm.
