Two questions regarding naming conventions:
In the late 1800s, if paternal and maternal grandfathers were both
deceased when the first son was born, would he have been named
after the paternal grandfather, or was it a choice?
When did the practice start for using the first letter of a
deceased relative's name for a child, rather than the whole name?
Example being naming a child Carl, after his grandfather Charles?
