If you buy or are given seeds the seller or donor gives up all rights 
to it. Should you decide to register it you should note who the 
hybridizer was and name yourself as the grower and selector. the 
hybridizer has no right to name it although you might allow that as 
a courtesy.
Having said that, it is going to be a pretty rare event that you would 
get an introduction worthy plant from seed which a hybridizer 
deemed to be expendable.  The usual point in doing this is to 
expand your germ plasm base for your future breeding efforts. 
Mostly you will either end up with a bigger compost pile or you will 
need to build a bigger kennel.
