      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.

      Regards,                -=David=-
