Would you name baby after recently deceased?

My grandpa died in June and my papaw died in September. Baby 4 was conceived, quite literally, right in the middle of them. If it's a boy I'm thinking William Lloyd, after the two great-grandpas. But I'm not sure if that would be to emotional. I get choked up just thinking about it. Anyone had good results with that?

I would.

My son was named after my grandfather (though he wasn't recently deceased) and his middle name is what my grandfather called my dad when he was little.

I would do it! It may bring up some "raw" emotions initially, but what a touching tribute in the long run :-) My grandfather passed away when I was pregnant with #3 and we ended up making DS's middle name my granddad's first name.

I would! I think it is a great way to honor them. Though just a friendly warning some how they may take on mannerisms of those people. My DD does stuff my Aunt did. Even though she was born 6 years after she passed away. These are things others have not done in the family. It is funny.

DD's middle name is the name of DH's deceased sister. She passed many years ago but DS2's middle name belonged to DH's grandfather who passed while I was pregnant.

I'm glad we did it both times

I would in a second! I always wanted a girl to name Elsie after my papaw who's first name was literally just the initials "L.C." makes me sad I won't ever be able to.

Re: Would you name baby after recently deceased?

My husbands grandma was in the hospital; that we delivered DS in. DS was born late Monday afternoon- and on Tuesday one of the nurses wheeled great grandma
To our room to see DS she spent some time holding DS; and was soooooo happy; she passed away the following evening. We thought about trying to incorporate; part of her name into ds's middle name but in the end we chose not to- mostly bc we had previously told my dad we were naming DS's middle name after him; but if we knew ahead of time everything was going to happen the way it did we probably would have.

We did. Dd1 was going to be Lillian until dhs grandpa (his only father figure) died in a car accident a month before she was born. Not the exact name. His name was earl, and we named her Eleanor, we use both Eleanor and ella. (was also dhs gmas name) I love the meaning behind her name. And so does dd1
