Used a name that was on your list that you LOVED on one of their children? If so, did they ask you if it was ok? Did it upset you or were you ok with it?
My sister *almost* did this to me.... my daughter's name is Brinlee Addisyn and she wanted to name her daughter Emalee Maddison wish is WAY too close to my daughter's name and the sole purpose of me using Addisyn was to honor my Grandfather whose middle name is Madison. This really made me mad, luckily I suggested a different middle name (Danielle) and she used it!
Not yet! My little brother had his kids a decade before me and no one else but me has had any since. My sister has always wanted to name her son Tyler Michael, Michael after our Dad, so I would never use either.
I would be very hurt if my sis did that to me, but I know she wouldn't.

Well, DH and I had the name Victoria Rene picked out before we found out our first was a boy. My sister ended up using Renee for her daughter Stacia, and a friend of mine used Victoria for her daughter's first name. To be honest, I was a little irritated when my sister used Renee, but I got over it really quick. What if I never have a daughter? Can nobody else I know use the name ever? No, that's stupid. I think Stacia Renee is beautiful anyway. As for Victoria, that name isn't even on my short list anymore. (Not that it's not a lovely name, IMO). We have another name in the top spot right now...IF we do decide to have one more baby and it happens to be a girl.

not us. we definitely picked out a name that hadnt been used and no one else was pregnant at the time so we didnt ask. there is a family name of Lane on brads side of the family. my sister in law used it for her son and has since taken some kind of claim to it and gets really mad when there is another lane popping up. she even uses it for her last name at work.
Sort of happened to me.. The name Cameron was really starting to grow on me (I've lost most interest in it now though), and my aunt and uncle used it on their little boy they had in December of 05.. But so far, that's the only name and it doesn't bother me because they had thought of it first. I wouldn't use it now.
Me and my sister both like Kenzie, but I know she likes it more then I do, so I don't mind letting her have it.
