  • No, not at all. If your really that uncomfortable you can talk to her about it. You can tell her that this is what you are naming your daughter. How does she feel about it. Ultimately it's your choice and she should be flattered. Or did she steal the idea from you, and use it before you? Either way the final choice is yours and a name is something for a lifetime. You should give your child a name that means something to you.

  • Yes. I was named Susie and I had a cousin (younger) named Susie. I hated it. I really hated it. I spent years trying to be ME and not the other Susie. I think it is rude beyond measure to do that to children.

  • unless she's copyrighted the name, you can go ahead and use it. it's not like your friend is the only one ever to name their child that. my friend named her daughter after mine, middle names included, and i thought it was sweet.

  • I don't think it's wrong, it's your child you can name her whatever you want.
