I'm keeping my baby's gender a surprise and I'm having a seriously hard time short-listing a boy's name...I can only think of about 2-3 boys names I like and the one I'm leaning towards is the same name as one of my long-term guy friends who is an awesome mate. I like the name independent of my friendship with this guy. He moved interstate a few years ago so I only see him about once a year now.
Do you think it would be a bit NQR to name your child the same name as a guy in your friendship circle? I wouldn't be naming it after him, it's just a coincidence as I like the name and only realised after I thought of it as a potential baby name that it was my mate's name.
I'm thinking it's probably ok considering I hardly see him anymore and my son's name and life would soon dominate the name meaning for me before too long.
Would your DH/DP object?
