Plaque With Message from Father to Son

I am looking for a metal plaque that says my last name on it. It is a plaque a father would give to his son. It says his name and there is a verse that says something to the effect of: when he gave his son his name there was no blemish on it and to guard the name and be proud of it and pass it to your son. There is a lot on it, but I can't remember everything.

I too had heard the poem and it is beautiful.

Here it is:

Special Gift

(Name)

You got it from your father

A gift he was so proud to give

So it is yours to use and cherish

For as long as you may live

If you lose a gift he bought you

It can always be replaced

But a blemish on your name, son

Can never be erased

It was clean the day you took it

A worthy name to bear

When he got it from his father

There was no dishonor there

So make sure you guard it wisely

After all is said and done

You will be proud your name is spotless

When you give it to your son

I am proud of you,

Name or title

Here's another slightly different version of it, called "Father's Family Name":
