My cousin has a boyfriend that I think has the same name as I have wanted to call my son (if I get one) since I was about 10.
I say that I think it's his name as I have only met him once, and they call him by a nickname.
I'm still going to call my son that name and I'm not going to ask. He is just a boyfriend and may not last, so there is noway that I am giving up my 'dream' name.
I don't think so.
A fb friend gave her DD the same first name (and it's not common either, I don't know anyone IRL with it) and middle name as my DD , I thought it just showed she had good taste
Friend of a friend? Nah, who cares what they do. I wouldn't care if a friend of my friend named their kid the same as DD.
My oldest sisters best friend called her son The same name as my DS just spelt idioticly. My DS is K*O*B*E hers is K*O*B*E*I, and now i hope she isnt on here she didnt ask or say anything to me about it. And if she had i would have said that she is open to choose any name she pleases for her children and other then her partner NOONE can stop her(other then BDM).
i dont think you need to say anything. i have named one of my children the same name as my ex sister in laws ex husbands child with his new wife. (gee i hope that made sense). they had a huge problem with it but i dont know them so i dont care really. i did ask my sons cousin though as it would mean she had a half brother and a cousin by the same name. she thought it was great so all good with me.
No, don't ask. If she says no I assume you're not going to change the name you've picked (and you shouldn't have to) and it seems more rude to me to ask when you have already chosen the name. Also she's a friend of a friend. Not someone that close to you, so no big deal really. No one in the world would have a totally unique name.
My partners cousin gave her child the same name as him. That I think is a bit weird and my partner doesn't really like it because they do see each other quite a bit but what can you do? Its not an uncommon name at all so its not like that's the only person he shares his name with
I wouldnt. A few fb friends have kids with names that are on my list of names... And if i ever have another child im still gonna use those names. Might throw them a pm 'hey we are gonna ahve kids with the same name' not ask tho, i mean.. Its my life they have theirs, its not like its the same family... But tbh even if it was family id still use my names lol.
So no Dexter for a boy then bones?
I wouldn't, she doesn't own the name.
DD has an uncommon name and everyone would know if someone in our circle of friends named their baby the same thing where they got the idea from, but I would never expect anyone to ask permission!
