Well, technically she would have been my stepsister. My stepmother had a stillbirth about 16 years ago. Her daughter's name was Kelsey Marie. I love the name Kelsey though I've been playing with spellings. Anyway, do you think it would be rude of me to ask her if I could name my baby Kelsey? I wouldn't be naming her that in honor of her daughter..just because I like the name..just to clarify. WDYT?

Oh..and I wouldn't ask her unless I was really sure that the name was atleast in our top 2..we'd have a back-up incase she said no.

Thanks!

If you LOVE the name, then use it... and if you feel like you should ask, then do so as well. I don't really have any other advice, good luck!

definatly ! I would probably do the same by asking her, just to be considerate of her feelings. I'm sure she'll say yes, as she'll likely look at it as an honour, even though you just like the name.

Good luck!

The girls so far offered good advice, I'd say if you really like the name go for it, and ask just to be considerate of her feelings, GL!

I think if you really like the name, she'll understand. I think it'd be nice of you to ask her if it was ok, but I don't think its necessary.

Good-luck

I'm sure if you ask she will be honored. She lost a daughter and you can even let her think you would be honoring the memory of the child. My brother died at 6 weeks old and another died at 14 years old. The remaining siblings have honored both brothers by naming children after them, either using first or middle names. I know that as the years go by it is nice to keep the memory of the lost one alive!
