  • if he's ex bf I'd say he's not over you, if he's ex husband I'd say he wants you to know he's still around

  • I think I'd find it odd even if the name was common. Does his wife know I wonder?

  • Yeah, it's a little strange. Usually ex's names are the first on the NO list.

  • yeah that is weird - for me ex's names are a big no, but even it I really liked one name that was an ex's name and decided to do it, I would NO WAY do the same first AND middle.. That is just weird! That girl's poor mom. lol

  • Yeah he still thinks of you.....I have a confession, I still carry a torch for an exbf, That I haven't spoken to in 8 years.... wanted to name my son after him, my husband had no clue, he just thought it was a good name...Then his daughter came up with a name that he liked better. I still want to be with my exbf, maybe in the next life or something, I just can't get over him.
    Just wait til the baby's mom finds out because I am sure she has no clue.

  • Not strange to me just means he must still have feelings for you. What is strange to me is his wife/babys mamma allowed this.

  • That would be a bit weird and I am surprised the baby's mom is ok with it --if she knew your name. Maybe he just liked the name?
