A few days ago I came across a source stating that the Nanticoke tribe of Algonquins had a certain tradition. If a close friend or relative bought gifts/etc for a new born, this gave them the right to name the child. I was researching other things, but this reminded me of a relative once saying that he was named after his grandfather, who had duly paid his father for the right to name him. This relative was born in the early 1900's south Georgia, the grandfather originating in North Carolina. I haven't been able to find any other sources for such a tradition. Anyone have any knowledge on this? I had assumed my cousins story was random until I stumbled across the Nanticoke tradition. The Nanticokes were from Delaware.
