Using a parent's first name


We said here that one may not call his parents by their first name. However,one may tell people their names in the course of passing information. The issue is really in using their names in a familiar - and therefore less-than-respectful - manner.

(Pitchei Teshuvah, Yoreh Deah 240:2)

Have a great day,
