  • No, I specifically avoided names that belong to people I know in general. I guess I used to date a guy named Jim and I thought about the name James because it is my FIL's name. So I could see how it would happen. I didn't even think about that ex when I was thinking of the name, or even at all until just now. He always went by Jim and we were thinking James so I guess I didn't really put it together.

  • I wanted to name my DD Emily Rea because Rea is a family name. My DH was like no way because my EX's first name was Raymond and we called him Ray.

    So no none of my children are named after any of my ex's. Actually the only one that has a name of someone I know is my DD and her middle name is my mothers name.

  • None of my kids have my ex's names. My daughter's middle name is Leigh which is an ex's sister's name though, lol. I named her because her great-grandpa's name is Lee and my dad's middle name is Lee. It's just a cooincidence.

  • Those names were on the NO list. There weren't that many though between the two of us, and they were mostly stupid names we wouldn't use anyway.
