Trouble with Mae
We are currently not expecting, but trying for baby #2! We have a 1 year old daughter named Adeline. I have loved this name since I was in the 7th grade, we contemplated the names Mae and Bristol (family name). My best friend just had a daughter a few months ago and named her Bristol Mae. And they call her Bristol sometimes and they call her Mae too. Their 3 year old cant say Bristol so calls her Mae, and so sometimes thats what other people call her. The only name my husband and I agree on is Mae, and it is my #1 choice. Do you think it would be ok to name her Mae, even though my friend has a daughter they call Mae? I dont feel right using Bristol since it is the first name of her child. Any suggestions for names like Mae?
Other names I like are :
Constance ( but hate Connie)
Harper ( becoming to popular)
Layla ( to popular)
Names my husband loves are:

I just had this same problem with a friend. I talked to her and she said it wasn't an issue- use whatever name we wanted. I picked my second fav choice as it was further from her daughters name.
Could be nn Mae

I've had the same problem with Zelda...only the person who used the name is not a friend, an annoying relative.
Maybe, causally ask the friend what she thinks?
Personally, since your friend and her family are using both names, interchangeably, I would use Mae as a middle name and find another first name that you and your husband like.
