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.
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!
