Ask the rabbi Family and Society Names and Name Changing

Wife’s name same as mother’s

Question
Are we makpid on the decree of Rav Yehudah Hachassid in terms of marriage today? Basically I want to know if my hebrew name is the same as the father of a girl I want to date is that a problem? If it is a problem, what if neither of us go by our hebrew names which avraham but I am called Abe and he is called Alan. And if this is a problem also is there a heter if our middle names are different, I am Avraham Yosef and he is Avraham Shmuel? Is there a problem going out with this girl?
Answer
Go out with the girl. The different middle name is sufficient, but even if the names were the same, you could always add a middle name later. Most people are not makpid.
