Mi Yodeya is a question and answer site for those who base their lives on Jewish law and tradition and anyone interested in learning more. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Closely related to this question, what happens if someone's mother or father doesn't/didn't like her or his name, and the child now either needs a MiSheBerach or is called to the Torah? What name should be used? Does Kibbud Av VaEim come into play?

(Note that, unless it is pointed out in the answers/comments that the rules are one and the same, I am asking only about ritualistic uses of the name, not legal uses. Hence .)
