Stealing a name

Say you're pregnant with a girl. You cannot pick a name. You and your spouse like the name Natasha. But your friend (who you have never MET but have been friends with via facebook and myspace for 7 years) has a daughter named Natasha.

What would you do?

Oh brother... there is no monopoly on names. People seriously need to get over it... if you like the name, use it.

Remind "friend" you have never met IRL and she doesn't own the name

So a person that you are not actually friends with wont "allow" you to use the name? Sorry, but I would be using the name if I loved it and wanted it. It isn't like it is a real friend, just a FB one.
