If an old friend or acquaintance had a child, and you just loved that child's name... would you consider using it if you and this old friend no longer talked, didn't see each other a whole lot, or lived in different cities now?

Depending on the circumstances and who the person was.... maybe (just being honest).

Yeah, I feel the same, maybe and depending on the circumstances. But, most people that I'm friends with/acquainted with, don't like the same names I do.

Probably - it's rare to find a name that hasn't been used by SOMEBODY after all. If I had any contact or chance of contact with the person I would probably get in touch and tell them how much I love the name and what would they think if I used it. If they said they'd really rather I didn't I would probably choose something else. I don't feel like choosing a name that is in use by someone I know is "copying", unless that name is an extremely original name I've never heard before (like Story) and then it would not be copying in a bad way, but a complimentary one. If I were to want to use the name of someone in this group for instance, I would ask them what they thought. I can't think any reason someone would be opposed to it though unless we moved in the same social circle in real life as well, or if our kids may end up in school together.
