Re: If you are in the process of deciding a middle name for your child
In Jewish tradition, a child is never named after a living relative. Dead ones are OK.
Sometimes a child is given his or her mother's maiden surname for a middle name. My nephew, for example, is Joshua Levin Penslar -- Levin being his mother's unmarried surname.

In the English speaking world, can you decide to spell your child's name with a different language's alphabet, a made up language's alphabet or even a code?
Well, there was that time Prince changed his name to this:
“All the universe or nothingness. Which shall it be, Passworthy? Which shall it be?”
