Coreyabrand@...  asked about names and burials of stillborn children "in the religion"

Under halachic law [jewish law] a baby is named at his bris if he is a boy, or in shul when her father has an Aliyah.  With a still born there is no name.  The child is often buried at the edge of the cemetery without a headstone and the records would only show “Baby Cohen”.    The family may have had a name in mind but that is not the still born’s Jewish name.
