Y-chromosomal Adam - Nomenclature

Nomenclature

Y-chromosomal Adam is named after the biblical Adam. This may lead to a misconception that he was the only human male alive during his time, even though he co-existed with other human males, including his own father who was not the "most recent". However, all his other male contemporaries failed to produce a direct unbroken male line to people living today.
