Re: Children named after their living parents #general

I am Sephardic and it is an accepted custom to name new born babies for living relatives. Generally if the first born is a boy he will be named after his paternal grandfather. If the second child is a girl she will be named after her paternal grandmother. If there is another boy he will be named after his maternal grandfather and another girl will be named after her maternal grandmother. After that it is up to the parents who they may choose to honor with names of any additional children.
