It is permissible and rewarding according to Prophetic traditions. In a Hadith narrated by Sayyiduna Jaabir (May Allah be pleased with him) he reports that he read Eid-ul-Adha Prayer with the Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). After the Prayer a ram was bought to the Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) which he sacrificed. As he did so he pronounced ‘In the name of Allah; Allah is the greatest. O Lord! This sacrifice is from myself and from whoever has not made a sacrifice from my Ummah’. (Musnad Ahmad ibn Hanbal). So according to Prophetic traditions you can give Qurbani on behalf of loved one and those that have passed away. MWF includes all the names in a collective prayer.
