Would you take someones name?

Say you had a friend that liked a certain somewhat uncommon name, and you decided that you really really loved that name too.

Now you and that person were no longer friends. Would you be able to use the name?

  • Yes. No one owns a name. So technically you aren't stealing anything.

  • Sure would, if I liked it, I would have no problem using it.

  • If it was just a name that they liked, then yes I'd go ahead and use it. If they used it, I'd be immediately turned off and start looking for something different. But as long as the name's available, well, early bird gets the worm. :)

  • Friends or not yes because only the first name would be the same.

    Answer by karkaa at 7:33 PM on Sep. 25, 2010

  • Yes I would. A lot of people have the same name. Doesn't seem like a big deal to me
