There is a Yiddish insult that goes something like, "May a small child be named after you shortly." The reason behind this zinger is that in the Jewish traditon, it is common to name babies after a deceased realitive. My family continued the traditon and named me Roxanne Victoria, Root Vida in Hebrew. Roxanne was for both my parents grandma's, who were funnily enough both named Rose. There was also a Ruth in there somewhere, only I don't remember how we are related. The Victoria comes from Victoria Pine, my paternal grandfather's mother.
