The name [name_m]Wheeler[/name_m] is a family name on my husbands side. [name_f]My[/name_f] husband would really like to use this name if our 3rd child due in [name_f]October[/name_f] is a boy.
The name is the middle name to both his grandfather (who he was very close to) and his younger brother.
I’m don’t mind the name, it’s cool and different. The fact that it is part of my brother in laws name and the thought that he may someday want to use it for a child of his own makes me hesitate.
Are there any rules about using family names? Is it a first come first serve kind of thing?
Any thoughts? Thank you in advance!
