Naming a Baby Girl #general


Stan <natsnehoc@...>
 

Dear Genners,

As a first time 'Zaidy', I would appreciate any information or guidance
regarding the following three questions:

Can a baby girl be named after her recently deceased great grandfather, who
has not as yet had an unveiling of his memorial? The girl was born some 4
months after the GGF's passing. She is now one week old, (and a real
beauty!).

Is (are) there any restriction(s) as to how long after her birth she should
be named in the Synagogue?

What would be the female version of the male name "Chaim"?

I would like to ensure correctness in terms of religious and genealogical
protocall. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
