I once dated a guy for 4 years... we had a messy breakup because he cheated on me.... We both moved on and now it is 2 years later. I am now married to a wonderful man and we are expecting our first baby ( daughter ), I am due in 5 weeks ( but DR thinks she will be coming in the next 2 or 3 ) . My husband and I have a name picked out that we both love.
I was on Facebook the other day and seen my exs profile pop up on the side ( we have mutal friends on there ) ... so of course curiosity got the best of me and I looked... I seen he and the girl he cheated on me with just had a baby 2 weeks ago and have the same exact name we were going to name our little girl ( it isnt that of a common name either ) ...
Now I dont know what to do... part of me of course still wants to name our baby what we have planned on calling her for the last few months, but then I think that I will always just think of him and his baby when I think of that name ( which i am thinking now ) ... Also we do live in a small town and i think it would just be weird and basically our common friends might think we "copied" them . Plus the fact that since we do have common friends, I think it would also be weird for them to have 2 sets of friends with the same named kids and our little girls will most likely be going to the same small school here and would be in the same grade ( if not class ) ... the reason we chose a not so common name was so she wouldnt have other kids in her class with the same name .
My husband said we can change the name but it took us a long time to come up with that name ... I am just confused ..would you keep it, or change it ?
