Craig and Meegan's Million Dollar Mistake?

According to Wikipedia, the reason why Leona Helmsley did not leave anything to two of her grandchildren (Craig and Meegan Panzirer) is because they failed "to name any of their children after her late husband."

Special thanks to Chasity West (J.D. Candidate, Texas Tech University School of Law) for bringing this theory to my attention.

What a b***! This is one of the more lurid arguments against unfettered testamentary freedom. $12 Million for a dog! (Truffle dog biscuits in a diamond crusted bowl?) Grandsons required to bow and scrape and pay obeisance, even in their old age! The others punished for not obeying her wishes regarding the names of their children? Dante I am sure had a special place reserved for her like!
