Has naming children ever formed systematized Halachot?

Or is it left as a sort of a prophecy to the parents?

  • There are definitely rules, and above all, customs. Naming children after deceased relatives, not naming them after the living, alternating choice of name between husband and wife, etc. – SAH Sep 13 '18 at 20:58

    @sah which of those is not just a custom – Double AA Sep 13 '18 at 21:20
  • @DoubleAA None, afaik. He didn't exactly exclude customs in his question... – SAH Sep 13 '18 at 21:22
