Has anyone else?

My husband and I decided if our baby is a girl we wanted to name her after a close friend of the family's baby who passed away due to heart failure 7 years ago. We asked the familys permission on Christmas Eve. They said yes:) Has anyone else ever done this? Has anyone asked and the family said no? We feel so honored they are letting us use her name.

  • My dh and I decided that if it was alright with my mom and we have a boy then we want to name him after my older brother who died at 5 days old. I asked and she said that it would be ok and she started crying.

  • Oh that is so wonderful and so touching! Good for you! No we never named after a friend. We did use for a middle name a family member who has no children.
