So my husband and I really like the name of a friend of ours' son, named Aiden. Background on our friend, we see Aiden's family maybe twice a year, only at birthday parties - they live 50 miles away and we don't see them all that much. Aiden's dad is like a mentor to me.
I know that if we named our son Aiden as a first name, that may rub the wrong way on my mentor. But we are liking Aiden not as the first name, but the second/middle name. We are thinking of naming our son "Connor Aiden" and he would go by Connor.
We haven't told my mentor yet, and we haven't finalized the name, but we are really loving the name "Connor Aiden." Do you think that it is poor taste to copy the first name of your friend's son but for a middle name?
Thanks in advance!
