    Yes, I did this. I have four girls so I used a couple of our names that were on my "almost used" list. My husband and I settled on a named for our oldest very easily so I didn't have a long list with her, but I considered more names when I was pregnant with my 2nd daughter. My 3rd daughter's name was on this list as well as my 4th daughter's. I think my 4th daughter's name would have suited my 2nd born very well, but I'm glad I saved my 3rd daughter's name. I can't imagine her as anything but Jane.

    I don't see any problem with it. If anything, it's a sweet connection and story to share.

    With DS1 we both had fave names, but DP let me have my name choice. So for DS2 I let him use his. DD's name was a name that had been on our list since DS2. We don't choose names by whether they suit the baby, just by whether we love them enough at the time, so we reuse names if we still love them.

    I think that is just the sweetest way of looking at it!

    And I agree, I think there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. I also love the name Maisie, and Mazarine is a very cool, and pretty way to use it as a nickname.
