My husband and I relly like the name Aubrey for our daughter. Unfortunately his mother's name is Audrey and I don't want her to think we are going to name our daughter after her. Do you think that Aubrey is too close to Audrey and that his mother will get the wrong idea? I am also worried that my mom will think I named my daughter after his mother. We have tried to come up with different names, but havnen't found any we like as much as Aubrey

I prefer Audrey to Aubrey, but I think in order to avoid any confusion you should not choose Audrey...especially if it is going to cause conflict in the family. I wouldn't worry about how Aubrey is too "close" to Audrey, yes it's similar, but not the same and that might help you avoid conflict. What about something like Aubriella?

Aubrey is definitely similar to Audrey but I think it's different enough to use. To avoid upsetting your mom how about using a name similar to hers for a middle name?

They are very similar but I do think they are different enough to use - is this something you could talk to your mom about?

I would tell your mom exactly what you just told us and then let your MIL think whatever she wants, honestly. With Aubrey you can call her "Bre' to eliminate any confusion.

I like Aubrey ....I know it doesn't change the sound of the name at all. But how about Aubree for a spelling. Makes it a little different.

I really like Aubrey. It was on our short list for this baby. But I think Aubriella or Aubriana (my personal favorite) would make it seem much less obvious and are both beautiful names.

Maybe a different spelling of Aubrey would help? Like Aubree? Then it is a different name with a spelling all it's own.

I think they are two totally different names. The suggestion of Abriella or Aubriana might be good, or start by saying you wanted to call her Brie, Bria?

I love the name Aubrey. I think that you should use it. Can you just explain to your mom that you are not naming the baby after your MIL and that you and your DH just love the name Aubrey?

It's possible she may think that as the names are very similar, but if you really like the name I wouldn't let that change your mind. I'm sure she'd get over it eventually.
