You can claim a name? I know that in general you can't say "Thats my name don't use it" But (and answer honestly) can you ever expect people who are close to you not to touch a name?
Example: (And I'm not going to delve further) If there was a late term baby loss and the couple gave that child a name. Would it then be okay to expect those close to that couple not to use that name? (And the people considering using the name are well aware of the loss, the name's use, and the emotions behind it)
Also, the couple thinking of using the name has put enough thought into it that they've already sent an email unprovoked saying. "We like this name, hope you don' t mind, but you know you can't own a name"
