    He was christened Gamma, but he changed it to John because his last name is Lammadingdong.

    I think it's spelled "Alpha", not "Alfa".

    John's mother was a lousy speller.

    What? It's her son's name. Not a plant or a Greek letter or something.

    And where do you think she got the idea for the name? Did she just pull it out of her arse?

    I've no idea what she pulled it out of, but I'll note that you called yourself SwissGambit, not GambettoSvizzero.

    Are you out of your mind? How can a one pull a name out of his butt? There are kids who, when they are born, really look like Johns, Peters or Abdul-Tawaabs but this kiddo really looked like Alfa.

    Funny, even though I don't know the language, GambettoSvizzero still looks properly spelled.

    obviosly it's gama, (yes, she misspelled this one too)

    She (the mother) named her sons after greek letters (spelling skills not withstanding) and daughters after the disciples.

    the children are:
    three boys: alfa, beta, and gama
    three girls: peter, james and john

    this is the only logical solution, as otherwise we don't have enough information to draw any conclusion at all.
