Thread: The name rule. :/

I've met two sets of twins who both had the same fn but different mns. Waaaaayyyy too confusing! Although, there was the advantage of using their fn and never making the mistake of confusing the two girls!
When siblings share a given name, it seems a bit lazy and un imaginative to me. I also have that impression when I meet someone with the same fn & ln (ie John Johnson). Unless of course there is a really good reason / story behind the name choice.Mommy to John Alexander & 3 furbabies; Maggie the dog, Rex & Bella the wannabe lions

This all the way.
I would want my kids to feel like they had their own individual name, picked out JUST for them. That we put a lot of thought and love into thinking it up.
This ties in with me not gravitating towards overly trendy or popular names. I'm just a stickler for individual style I guess.... Really is my biggest naming rule.Mama to ~Rowan Josephine 1/12~

Personally I'd consider that a big no-no. As a person who has always had some kind of inferiority problems with my siblings, that would bother me to no end.

I don't think that is too bad. I personally would avoid it but to each their own. My sister is actually doing that.Raquel-22 year old who loves names, books, and languages
