If you have minor children, then naming a proposed guardian in your will is a good idea. In fact, naming a successor guardian is a good idea. If you're doing a health care power of attorney, or a financial power of attorney for yourself, it's a good idea to name a guardian for yourself there, as well, should you become incapacitated. That way, the court will know who you prefer to be your guardian should something happen to you, and who would be your children's guardian should you pass.
