    Is this stealing? Are these names too close?

    Our friends just recently had a little girl and named her Ava. Beautiful name, only problem is... my favorite girl name for years has been Maeva. My DH thinks its too similar to Ava and doesn't want to use it. I disagree completely and think it's still usable!!!

    What do you think?

    I don't think it's too close. If all else fails, she could go by a nickname, e.g. May, Eva, Evie, Emmie
    moving to new account with username I like more... since we can't just change them

    I don't think it's too close, plus Ava is pretty popular and Maeva is more rare.

    If you aren't even pregnant yet I think it's fine. It's not as though your kids will be the same age. If you do end up deciding to go with it when you're actually pregnant, then I'd probably mention it to your friend just so she knows you thought about it.
