that's confusing. my husband an i combined have a lot of first cousins and 3 of the names we like are taken. i have a cousin named Nicholas, & my husband has cousins named Clayton & Becca. These are all names i like and we don't like many names.
we are having a boy so Becca doesn't matter ;) we see my cousin nick a lot so i think it makes sense not to name our child that, but we see Clayton like once every other year, so would it really be such a big deal to name our baby that?
my husband says no because it's his cousin's name and i understand but he does like his cousin ok, and like i said we never see him.
what do you all think? do you cross off names that are already in the extended family? even if you rarely see that person?

I did. They have different last names and they have never met. It hasn't been a problem. I recently found out that a cousin named his son the same first and last name as my nephew. Can't wait to be my SIL's reaction to that one. I doubt they will spend much time together. but they do live in the same town and the last name is very unusual. I would be pissed. If you husband doesn't like the idea keep looking for a name you will both love.
