Hungary SIG #Hungary Naming the newborn-Jewish custom #hungary


alexpmiller@...
 

Newborns are named after deceased ancestors. That has been the general
Jewish custom.

Is there something more specific? Who gets named after the paternal
ancestors vs. the maternal ones? Any time limitations after the death.
Naming of the first born? Different rules for boys/girls?

Any articles on the subject?
