Why not ask your own shailah?

I have a BIL who lost his mother young, and was told (by R' Dovid Feinstein) to name my niece exactly as is.

Many family members have already used the original name. It’s not something I’m concerned about from a Torah perspective. My husband is just not comfortable with it and I want to respect his personal feelings.

My grandmother a"h died at a relatively young age. My older cousin was the first to have a girl and name for her. He asked a shaila and was told to add a middle name. The rest of us who named after the same grandmother all followed suit and all added different middle names. It's very helpful when we get together because we can easily differentiate which child we are talking about! We all picked middle names that made sense to us based on the time of year or the parsha or other circumstances.

I am named for someone who died young in Auschwitz. My parents added a name from the parsha the week I was born which is related to giving life.

I heard it's specific for someone under 20 years old.
I've heard alta or bubbe be added as well as the other mentioned names

I believe that if naming a child after your own parent you don’t need to add but when it’s a grandparent you should. My husband is named after his grandfather with no additions but when his nephews were named that they were told to add (same rebbe was asked by both)

I definitely agree to ask

I'm named after my grandmother who died very young. I'm one of 8 cousins named for her. Everyone asked a rav. Some who told to add on a name before, some to add on after, and some to leave as is.

By my son who we named after DH brother who died very young we asked a Rav and he said add chaim. We couldn't coz it's DH name so he said just pick any name and gave an example of a name from that weeks parsha.

You don't have to add a specific name.

I've definitely heard this. If it's one's own parent, s/he can name the child the direct name without additions.
