my sister and i are of childbearing age. she has two boys and is ttc her third. i have none and am ttc my first. well the three of us we sitting around talking about baby names (my dh, her, and i {her dh was at work at the time}).

 well i brought up girl names(thinking it was perfectly harmless) and said i would like to name a dughter of mine "Aurora Jade".

That is when she got all keyed up and said " that is my name, you can not use it, if you do you it i will never ever talk to you again."

i know when my sister is joking and when she is not joking after all i have known her for 24 yrs  She was not joking.

do people really get all that keyed up and defencive over baby names

She doesn't have a copyright to that name, and if she would never talk to you again for using it, then I think there are some deeper issues here.

The name isn't even really that phenomenal

Glad my sister and I don't like the same names. I like weird names and she likes old fashioned names.

Then she's being a weirdo lol I'd ask her when she thought of the name if she loved it so much why hasn't she mentioned it? My sister wouldn't be able to lie on a whim and I'd make that my name lol since her and I are so mature lol

deefensive

Some people do. I honestly wouldn't worry about it until and unless you both get pregnant with girls some time soon. Honestly if I get pregnant with number 3 ever I'll probably keep my names to myself. But I don't think it's the worse thing in the world for cousins to have the same name. She'd have to get over it though if that was the name I liked.

Why don't you ask her why you aren't allowed to use that name?
