I don't think it is particularly important. Neither of my children were named after a family member, they have their own names. I was named after an aunt for my middle name, but my parents shortened the name from Josephine, thank goodness, as it became the name I have always been called.

I have not voted either way as I think it is purely a personal choice.. I was asked to name my daughter after a relative I had never heard of so refused. My daughter has given HER daughter my mum's name as her middle name. She said she wanted to honour and remember her nanny.. As I said, it should always and only be a personal choice of the parents.

You may not have a good relationship with the person. There is a chance you could upset other family members.

As a middle name only and only one as too many is I think is excessive.
