First, thanks for responding, even though negatively.
As you know, the STERNs are a dime a dozen, and the David Sterns seem to be
almost more numerous than that! So I often run into Davids with sons Michael
(like me!) or the other way around. But Alan Sterns, you're only the second
one I've heard about.
In 1960 I was hired as a programmer by the "other" Alan. At the time I found
it rather "un-Jewish" of him to name his son Henry: in my opinion, as goyish
a name as can be.
Imagine my surprise, when, in 1989 my daughter presented me with my first
grandchild... you guessed it... Henry.
Since then I have become accustomed to he name. Henry and his brother Arthur
(solid Jewish name, that :-) ) are my among my favorites of my eight
grandchildren, but if you tell anyone I said so I shal strenuously deny it
You should live a long happy life, even without a Henry of your own.
