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:
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":
