My SO and I finally agreed on a boys name, the thing is it's my nephews middle name. He is 18 now and I don't see him a whole lot would you still use the name as your babies first name?

if i really loved the name then yes i would. I think because your nephew is so much older than your baby it wouldnt even be an issue. If your nephew and son would grow up as playmates i may feel differently but thats not the case here.

I would use any name I wanted to (and have, lol). So what if it is your nephew's middle name? If anything it is an honor for you to use it - shows you think highly of the name and the person (well, hopefully the person!).

definitely use it, especially if you love it! my daughter has the same name as my aunt and uncle's dog lol. i also have two cousins on the same side of the family with the same first name and nobody thought it was weird...esp since they dont see each often.

Thanks ladies. I think I will add that to our list. You have made this so much easier. I might even tell him once I get pregnant if we have a boy I will be using his middle name for the first

Definitely use it. It's only your nephews middle name, not his first name, and not the name he commonly goes by, plus there is a huge age difference between your nephew and your baby, so I think it's totally usable. Go for it.

I think you should use a unique and new name for your baby.
