Why on earth would it be odd for a child to have the same first name as his grandfather? Not being snarky, l just don’t understand why you think this very ordinary thing is odd. Unless his grandfather is serial killer or something.

not OP but I think it varies family to family. I can’t picture naming my kids after their grandparents (middle name maybe, definitely not first name). It would just be weird for me personally- maybe it’s the fact that I of course don’t call my parents by their name so to suddenly call my child by that name would be weird for me. My whole family is just very big on not repeating names so if one of us names a kid after a currently living family member, we would all find it strange. But I do know other people who of course do the James, James Junior thing. And good for them if they like that, but I’d never do that personally. I don’t get why other people do it honestly, I know often times it’s to honor said person or a tradition, but to me, your kid is an individual, give them their own name. That’s my POV and two cents 🤷🏻♀️

That is my opinion. It’s never been done in my family or my husband’s – so to us it would be very odd (our parents would find it strange too!). In our family, we honor grandparents with the middle name.
