Oh and how our family manages the name confusion is like my brother is Robert Daniel - known as Daniel. My dad is Robert Bruce - known as Rob. My grandfather is Robert Leslie - know as Leslie. And his father was Robert something - known as Robert.

If it was family tradition I would.
If not then no.. I don't think I'd be starting a new tradition.
If anyone watches Cake Boss- you'd know how big on tradition they are, and family names. They have neices and nephews named after aunts and uncles.. it must be so confusing.. and it's not even once per generation- eg The Cake Boss is Buddy, his son is Buddy AND his nephew is Buddy (plus he was named after his dad and grandfather etc etc.)
He has a sister called Mary and a neice called Mary (but the neice isn't Mary's daughter, it's Mary's neice too...) and it goes on and on and on like that!
I think it can be confusing... but like I said- if it's tradition- I stick to it.

We called our DS the same name as DH. To be honest, we couldn't agree on any other names and there were no other names either of us really loved for a boy (we had a girls name totally ready if our baby was a girl). Also, we lost 9 weeks to think about names further when DS had to be delivered at 31 weeks.
We didn't so much name DS after DH, but we used the same name because we like it. DS has a different middle name to DH.
In our house DS is called by his name, DH is called a shortened nickname.
