  • Nope, I wouldn't. But it isn't unheard of. Also here in NC, there is a man on the news. His name is Neill McNeill. Let's not forget the show Home Improvement. The neighbor's name was Wilson Wilson.

  • LMAO@ THE PERSON ABOVE ME! Ive always found that wierd when people do that and u just made my point LOL! To answer the question though No. It is personal preference that I will personally never understand. Why do that to a child? also take the last name into consideration when naming your child! MY mom went to school with a kid named Harry Mann. NO joke. That poor kid. I think he would have been better off being named Mann Mann than Harry Mann.

  • It's unusual but I've seen it done. My best friend is named Alexander Alexander (and she's a girl). I have another friend named Johanas Johanson... I suppose it all depends on your preferences.
