It's not anymore 'dumb' than a father passing his name on to a son.
I think it is more dumb. I'm not crazy about the name-passing thing, but with a son, you can at least use the excuse that it's traditional and something that's just generally done. There's no reason to go cross-gender name inheriting unless we're talking about a guy having a big ego/too much pride, IMO.
