Resolved Question: Baby boy names that go
Our baby is going to have two middle names since we want to carry on both sides of our families. We had thought about just doing Paul Allen but the initials would be PAM and that's just not going to work. Need more first names for boys that would go along with Allen Paul or Paul Allen... He's really picky and hasn't like what I've liked so just need more ideas . Thank you:)

Resolved Question: How is BIll Gates worth
I read Bill Gates is worth around 50-60 billion. Paul Allen is supposedly worth 10-13 billion.
I dont get it, if they both started Microsoft how is one worth much more than the other? Even if Paul Alen owned say 30% of Microsoft and Bill Gates owned 40% there wouldnt be such a big gap! (although im sure Paul Allen still manages off 12 billion!)
