6. Names Common to Both Males and Females


1) Some say that one should not give his child a name that is common to both males and females.

2) Some are particular not to marry a woman whose name is the same as one’s own.

3) If a bridegroom has the same name as his prospective mother-in-law, or if the bride has the same name as her prospective father-in-law, there is no cause for concern, and the bride and groom may marry each other.
