Trivia:

Many members of the Simpson family are named for members of his own family: Homer, Marge, Maggie, Lisa and Patty. In order to avoid insulting another family member by making him the namesake of a Simpsons character, he left Homer's father unnamed. The writers of the series named him Abraham. Coincidentally, Groening's own middle name is Abram. In 1993, he named his second son Abe. See more »
