[name_f]My[/name_f] husband and I are strongly considering naming our future son after a very close friend whom we’ve known for five years. His name is fairly distinctive (we’ve never met anyone else with the name) and doesn’t have any nicknames or variants. Think [name_m]Milo[/name_m] or [name_m]Jasper[/name_m]. His name would be our son’s middle name. The friend is in his 20’s.
Is it a terrible idea to name our son after a friend? I don’t usually hear of this happening unless the honor name is a family name.
