1. Armand Hammer (1898-1980) was a businessman and philanthropist who founded Occidental Petroleum, donated widely to liberal causes, and groomed Al Gore into a political career. He was married four times, but had only one child.
2. Julian Armand Hammer (1929-1986), led a life plagued by mental illness and substance abuse, and a charge of manslaughter. He had two children, Michael and Casey. Michael was expected to run the empire.
3. Michael Armand Hammer (1955-) rejected his family's liberal Jewish heritage to become an evangelical Christian. He now channels the fortune into an evangelical Christian film studio, a Christian college, Jews for Jesus, and innumerable fire-and-brimstone preachers.
By the way, Armie has a younger brother, Viktor, named after his great-uncle.
But staunch, serious Socialists naming their firstborn son with a pun? Unlikely.
Armand's parents weren't necessarily interested in French novels, but they probably saw a stage version in New York in 1896, two years before Armand was born.
So, pun on a Socialist logo or a gay prostitute's boyfriend? Either one is more interesting than a box of baking soda.
