The Pantagraph, a Bloomington newspaper, reported that Stevenson was ambivalent about passing on his famous name. "When my own kid was about to be born... the big debate began - were we going to continue this name thing? I was basically against it, needless to say fully aware of how being named Adlai E. Stevenson can be a Boy-Named-Sue-like albatross. But my dad and my wife felt strongly this was something we should do." His son, Adlai Ewing Stevenson V, was born in the fall of 1994.
