Mom and Baby names

Have you ever run across several people that have the same name and name their children the same name. Like My name is Nicole and my son's name is Tyler. I've come across at least a dozen nicole's or tyler's that have a mother or a son of the same name. Another I've found is Amanda and Ethan, there are a ton of those. Anyone come across the same weird coincidences?

  • I've heard of others like this but not me personally. My name is too uncommon.
