No it wouldn't....He can be of the same family, just generations down the line.
Doomguy can't be of the Blazko family because that would make him Blazko Junior. End of story.
That would make a good and funny name for a presidential character :)
Wolfenstein RPG has an enemy called the Harbinger and he says in the game that he will come back and fight his descendants, when he does come back it is in the Doom games when he meets Doom Guy as the Cyberdemon.
Wolfenstein RPG kinda has already retconned Doom Guy to be a descendant of the Blazkowicz family by making the Cyberdemon another incarnation of the Harginger....Cyberdemon = Harbinger, one and the same.
The guy in Wolf RPG and 3D is called B.J Blazkowicz and in Doom RPG the character is called Stan Blazkowicz, a descendant of the B.J. Due to his similarities to the Doom Guy, it could be assumed that he is the same person....
I think this is mostly open for interpretation....but the most likely names, for the classic universe Doom Guy for me...would be a choice of
Or Flynn Taggart....
Dacote and Taggart can still be descendants of Blazkowicz as throughout generations, surnames of families could change. Stan is descended from B.J sometime down the generations, this makes a neat idea that as Doom is a descendent of Wolfenstein 3D in terms of looks and gameplay, then the character in Doom can also be a distant descendant of Wolfenstein 3D's.
So in my eyes first born is B.J Blazkowicz, goes through the adventures of Wolf 3D and RPG and meets Harbinger who promised to come back and haunt B.J's relatives....after this Stan Blazkowicz is born and Stan is such relative. And even though this happens in Doom RPG, the Cyberdemon first appeared in Doom before all of this backstory was given, then shows up again in Doom RPG with backstory and in wolf RPG with backstory....and as we see Cyber first in Doom, this could be his first appearance to terrorize B.J's descendants and then comes back yet again for Doom RPG.
So it could be that Stan is Doom Guy...or if not the same person a relative of Doom Guy, of which his name is Buddy or Flynn and the Cyberdeomon chose to come back and terrorize both descendants at different times.
I know Stan and Doom Guy share the same sprite set out of convenience, but even so it still gives a nod towards them being the same person.
Of course non of it is official, but as the way things are, I think this is most likely.
As far as Doom 3 goes, I think they are each different people in those games. They could all still exist in the same universe as Classic Doom though, just sometime afterwards. Doom RPG I think has some locations of Doom 3, which still could mean they are all set in the same universe but at different times. Or perhaps not, maybe the base exists in both universes but the characters do not....getting a little off topic here.
