Actually, it's more than that. The regulations require specific identification of inherited IRAs, including the names of both the beneficiary and the decedent.

Yeah, I did think it strange that the account is actually in Dad's name. We were given the same explanation you gave. I would suppose this is done so that the IRS can track the funds transition from one owner to another.
