How closely related were Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor?

Level 34

Franklin and Eleanor were married. Theodore was franklins distant cousin

So was Eleanor; she was Theodore's niece.

Eleanor was Teddy's niece, so FDR married his 5th cousin, once removed, so all three were related prior to the marriage.

In fact, Eleanor Roosevelt never changed her name, interestingly enough.

ecp - why bother? it was the same name...

I totally woulda hyphenated. "Hi, I'm Eleanor Roosevelt-Roosevelt."

I used to know someone whose surname was Gifford-Gifford. I've often wondered why someone decided it was worth hyphenating...

Interestingly enough, they were related AFTER the marriage too...

I had trouble with the Marleys - One ostentatiously common, one ostentatiously weird, and one ostentatiously not really ostentatiously either way.

Never heard of the Gibbs!

But you’ve maybe heard of the Bee Gees?

Wait. What?

You see, the Bee Gees is a musical act and is made up of three brothers. They share a family name, and even have different first names. That makes them perfect for this quiz!

The Bee Gees = The B Gs = The Brothers Gibb. Little bit of musical maths for ya!

I just learned this yesterday from another quiz that included a clue about the group. The B in the BeeGee's isn't "brothers" and the G only partly stands for "Gibb".

It's actually the shared initials of three people: Bill Goode (one of their early promoters), Bill Gates (a Brisbane radio DJ), and Barry Gibb.

Got all but Potter and Stark.

It's useless knowledge anyway, so there's nothing wrong with that.

Could include Branwell to the Brontë sisters? Not quite as famous but still wrote and painted…

Great quiz though!

Not that it matters that much but Leia wasn’t a Skywalker, she was adopted and was Leia Organa.

Well the only other option is Shmi (or Rey if you accept that).

The surname is di Medici not just 'Medici' so correct answers are being discounted.

A quick Google suggests that the when speaking of the family as a whole, the de/di isn't used. It's simply the Medici or House of Medici. Individuals, however, do use the de/di to denote their connection to the family.
