Question
Hi Rabbi, we are new grandparents and have not been told what the newborn will be called at the baby’s naming ceremony. Is it usual to wait until after the ritual to tell the grandparents? Thank you.

Question
Can someone be given a Hebrew name posthumously? Deceased had a Jewish mother with a Hebrew name and a Christian father. Also, can the daughter of this person, who is now an adult, be given a Hebrew name now, which she would like to have done?

I didn’t know my Hebrew name, so I asked my parents and they told me that they never gave me one. Does that mean I can’t have a Hebrew name?

Question
Dear Rabbi, If some people have a Yiddish rather than a Hebrew name that is used for ritual purposes (e.g. getting an aliya, praying for the sick), can one have an English name for ritual use? What makes it so a Yiddish name can be used, but no one uses English names ritually? And what if someone only has an English name, but none in Hebrew or Yiddish? Can that person (or their son) receive an aliya under an English name?
