Meh… I usually hate things like this (and am personally not a fan of passing down exact names at all), but if it was a tradition in his family and really important to my Darling Husband I think I would be okay with it. My best friend just had a boy and was in the same situation as you. Her husband is a “III”, and wanted his son to be the 4th. She eventually gave in. However, they all go exclusively by nicknames (the grandfather is “deuce” for “2,”, her husband is “Tripp” for “3”, and since the name is William my friend gave her son the nickname “Liam” and that’s what he goes by 100% of the time). She is totally fine with it now, and having a nickname she loved really helped.
