Before I get into this, some background information is requisite.
About 4 years ago in December, a little boy named Slade died in our town. He was only 9. He had drowned in a river by sledding over some too-thin ice, then being pulled under by the strong current. They couldn't save him. His death was probably the most grim thing to have happened here for years.
A week ago, in the birth announcements section of our local newspaper, a new child named Sl@de John@than was born. Apparently the parents have received a good deal of censure for naming their child that so soon.
Does this make using this appellation name blasphemy?
Any other thoughts?

How sad about that little boy! I'm assuming you live in a small town. In my opinion, 4 years have passed... this can also be a way of honouring little Slade. I've considered using Benjamin to honour my deceased grandfather... I think few would censor me for that. I'm not really a fan of Slade as a name, though...INTP Anthropologist Living in the centre of China, married to a Persian, and just enjoying a completely unpredictable life
