A little too late , I took a look of dalias name and how it is written.
  Felker, D Richard III
Now I am playing dumb and restore the original name to:
  D Richard III Felker

Well if I've watched some historical movies I could assume that dalias
is some kind of aristocrat  and III is actually an sequence number
showing that he is the third ruler with that name. So according to
that rule the number should be moved after the whole name.

If I've watched even more foreign movies I could learn that at least
in USA giving the name of the father to a child is quite common and
probably after few generations of Jr (junior) they could start giving
them numbers.

Dalias, will you reveal your family (name) secret ;)

Well, so much about playing dumb.
Who is next?
