When a family had a child, did that child aquire their father's first name as their last name?
I have a death certificate for Baboo Din born August 24, 1889 in India (as indicated on death certificate) but the family states he was born in Afghanistan.
Baboo's father is listed as Ja La Baboo. Baboo was my husband's Grandfather, John Gulam Mohammed's uncle.
By chance is this how families from India named their children and Baboo was actually born in India?
Any information someone could give me regarding how a child was or still is named in Afghanistan would be appreicated.
Thank you for your time.
