There should be a few. Watson Sr/Jr of course.
The Burroughs family is four generations deep in
fame, if strange fame.
I know some father-son combinations where the
son is usually unknown, but in the industry.

SemiFunny story One IBM researcher I met (last name
starts with U) had been named "Corwin P." by his parents.
That's right: initials CPU.
