My DH is named after his father and if we have a son, our son will be named after DH.
I think it's a beautiful tradition. DH & FIL's name is unique because it is Ukrainian so it carries a lot of heritage.
Side note: if we have a daughter she will have my middle name and will be 4th generation of mom/daughter middle name tradition in our family.
I ended up giving my son a nickname anyway.
Common practice in many countries. You'd have to think about how you feel about people calling him Jr.
I wouldn't mind doing it. DH didn't want to.
I understand the tradition of it, and to each his own. I would never do it, though. In DH's family, the first boy usually has the middle name of their dad or grandfather. His oldest brother has his grandpa's first name as a middle name, and the next brother in line has FIL's first name as a middle name. DH has a unique name because they ran out! :) We won't follow that, though.
I've become anti-tradition in some things. I have traditions I like to follow, sure. But my mom goes NUTS any time we follow one of DH's family traditions and if we do one of MY family traditions, MIL feels left out.
We do holiday traditions and that's it. Now DH and I will make our own family traditions. I don't want to keep hearing about it from our moms for the rest of my life.
We are doing it. My husband's name is Andrew and he goes by Andy. Our baby's given name will be Drew.
I just love my husband to pieces. He's my favorite person in the universe, and I can't think of a better way to honor him than to name our baby after him. DH was hesitant at first but he's on board now.
