    I say pick a new name that is unique and special to you because regardless, the girls will grow up together and when someone has the same name as you it becomes less special. How about Junia nn June or Junie, hey it's even biblical!

    Yeah but there's no guarantee they will grow up together, what if they forfeit Jane and 6 months after they have Junia this family moves? When it comes to neighbors I say do what you want. I never felt less special because another little girl on my street shared my name, if anything it was sort of cool to be the two <instert name> on the block

    We had a gender surprise with my first child and I was very open about our names. 6 days after my son was born, my neighbor named her daughter Isla. I would never use Isla now because it bugs me that the little girl down the street has the same name.

    Cool

    It isn't "stealing" if you've loved the classic name long before you knew your neighbor. While it's perfectly fine to stick by a name you've loved forever, consider whether or not you can stand your daughter being the other Jane in town. If you and this new friend are hitting it off, it shouldn't be an issue to show your sincere concern about the name. Perhaps she'll understand!

    This happens a lot to parents who are into trendy names, I'm sure.

    Like other posters have said, Jane is a very sweet and classic name. It is also a bit of a common choice between parents. As for the stealing issue, I don't consider it stealing. Partly because it's a traditional type name, and because you loved this name. It isn't just because your neighbors had chosen it for their daughter , I am sure. Personally, I would rather my daughter be the only one of out her group of friends with that name than there be 4 or 5 ..
