  • nope, but my bil did the same thing.... except i was pregnant and made the mistake of telling them the name we picked out and they had their baby first and used the name we picked. also they gave both their kids the same middle name.... their father's middle name so i think creativity is lacking for them.

  • That is crazy! Why would anyone want to do that to those poor children? I would have DH say something to his brother.

  • that is kinda wierd but my sister ashley and our cousin daniel were born on the same day in two different stated only minutes apart and the name my mom had picked out for a boy was daniel. that would have been funny. just because ther ewould have been no correlation for a couple days only to find out.

  • Meh, it's a name. A name that your child will share with many, many, many people. To each their own.

  • exactly many strangers! But to have to share it with your cousin wow! To me its weird there are a billion names out there!

  • My sister and cousin share the same name. Then again we live several states apart, never see them. My sister is older then my cousin by 16 plus years. So my grandparent's when talking to my mom will say "little"_____ when referencing my Aunt's, Mom's Sister's, daughter.
