Profiles for infants?

+6 votes
I’m working on creating profiles for everyone ina cemetery.  There are many unnamed infants buried there. Would it be OK to put ‘Infant Son’ ,for example, as first name and a real LNAB? I have the parents, I have the birth and death dates, I have pix of their gravestones.  The very first burial in this cemetery is of twin infant daughters.

I’ve read the other similar G2G questions, but they don’t address the Fist Name issue.

Robert, the help index for 'proper first name' says:

If an infant died before he or she could be named use what is on their death record according to their conventions, otherwise use Unnamed Infant. Do not use Infant BoyBaby Girl, etc. There is a gender field for this.

You can use the "Died Young" sticker to bring some attention to the fact that the child died at a young age.
