The OP, I believe, refers to a brahmin girl marrying a non-brahmin boy and the couple now wanting to perform "upanayanam" or Poonal ceremony for the boy child born to this couple.

As clearly stated in post #3 above, upanayanam or poonal is possible, according to our Sastras only if the boy;s father is a brahmin, kshatriya or vaisya, in which case the father will know his gotra and the son also will belong to this gotra. In all other cases, if any poonal ceremony is done borrowing this or that gotra, it is all against sAstras and anybody may do anything today.

Very true! Two events that I have seen in Sing. Chennai:

1. One Mr. Samson from the U S of A was named as Chiranjeevi. Shankar and had annaprAshanam and upnayanam ceremonies

just before he married a tambram girl! 12 sAsthrigaLs attended the nAndhi ceremony.

2. A girl from Thailand could bring only her dad with her, for her wedding with a tambram boy. So she was adopted by the mAmA

of the groom. Bride was clad in a madisAr saree and sat on the laps of her 'adopted' dad for the mAngalya dhAraNam!! :)

This is one way of increasing the number of tamil brahmins.

We can have Thais, Singapore chinese, Maldives natives, Myanmar tamils , some from lakhsdeep ,andhaman people having close resemblance and who can adopt our culture

easily . Of course american /canadian drop outs are the easiest to get due to many of our folks coming in contact with them. My friend and school mate got his daughter in

canada in an academic institution married off to a french canadian professor. The marriage was with ammi mudithal ,arundhathi parthal, mapillai azaippu and

mangalya dharanam with our priests officiating

It was well attended marriage with a lot of tamil brahmin elite participating in sankara madam in delhi

Such an increase in B population may bring new approach / attitude to B customs, which may confuse or out-date the existing ones. Already we have couple of such things due to large scale imports from abroad - Hare Krishna Movement, ISKCON etc.

We will then have to accept NV food, social and private drinking and so many other customs. Will our watchmen of brahmin purity allow all these? Doubtful!
