When I was expecting my first, we had chosen Jack for a boy and Mia Isabella for a girl. A friend who was also expecting but was due before me was having her baby shower, and the topic of names came up. She had chosen her daughter's name (they knew it was a girl) even had it written on the Baby Pool chart. So I felt it was safe to share my chosen names. She really like my girl's name - but I never expected she would use it! She actually called her daughter Maia Isabella but to me it was close enough I felt betrayed and robbed.
Fortunately we had a boy, and by the time we had our girl we lived in another state.
Has anyhting like this ever happened to you? Or have you done something like this yourself?

That would tick me off!! I would never take a name that someone else was using. Unless it was later down the road and we no longer lived close by each other, kwim?

I know its really dumb, but Im always afraid to share a name for fear someone else will "steal" it. I know its impossible to name your child somthing that no one else will ever be named, but I can still pretend! Im sad that my girls name is starting to get popular, but I just keep telling myself it doenst matter...

Me and my sis have liked the same name, but we compromise (that spelling seems so wrong to me, but I can't remember how to spell it ) lol.. Well, it seems like every day we have new favourites, so it doesn't really matter in the long end.

But, that would make me really upset. I would feel completely betrayed If it was just the first or middle name that she had "stolen", I think it wouldn't be AS bad, but she copied the WHOLE name!
