|Abby: Tread carefully when naming baby after deceased relative|
|News - St Augustine Area & St Johns County|
DEAR ABBY: What is the protocol for naming a baby after a deceased person? If the name you want to use is a deceased family memberís name, do we ask his next of kin for approval? Do we say nothing? Is it assumed that people who wish to use someoneís name when naming their child should seek permission (whether the person is living or dead)?
Obviously, some people will use the name regardless of being granted a blessing or not, but Iím wondering what is appropriate in this situation. ó PREGNANT IN ILLINOIS
