Brother #1, has a son who married a woman with the same name as his sister.
Brother #3 has a son who almost married a girl with the same name as another daughter of Brother #1, not a sibling but a cousin.
Also, Kelly or Tracy, which I understand can go either way in the US though they're always female here.)My brother in law is a Rob, and so is my brother.
It was mostly just confusing when referencing one of them in a conversation, so the BIL tends to just get called by a contraction of his surname.
She named one of her sons "Teejay" (actual legal first name) after his initials. Hell, I don't know if I'd be able to get down with a woman named "Peggy-Sue" even if I didn't have a sister by that name.
I know this seems really shallow and possibly pointless, but I have to know if it's just me with this phobia.
My sister's name in not that uncommon, I don't come across it often, but it's out there.
I don't think I could be really comfortable dating a girl with the same name. My brother's name is common - and it's the same as my dad's and grandpa's name. Finding a mate is difficult enough without putting such a ridiculous constraint on your dating opportunities.
Sure, I'd try it and give it a good chance, but that particular circumstance hasn't happened yet. Could any of you feel comfortable crying out your lover's name during sex, when that name is that of one of your siblings? I want to think of my partner's name and get excited, be romantic, not think of my sister at that time. But, I don't call my dad or grandpa by that name, and luckily for me I think of my brother by his nickname. On the other hand, two of my sisters have names which have fallen out of favor during my lifetime.
Or either grandfather (Michael and Frank) for that matter.
