This is my first time to post on the boards. I apologize for the length of my post, but I really need all the opinions I can get. Thanks!
I was at my in-laws last night showing them some pictures on facebook when I saw an update from my cousin, who is also expecting and due in Dec (a month after me). Her post said that her husband was able to feel Brianna move. I was completely shocked because our top name choice is Brianne, and I have never discussed names with her (it isn?t a family name either). And now I don't know if I even like it as much!
This isn't the first time something like this has happened with us. We both got engaged and married within a few weeks of one another, we almost chose the same bridesmaid dresses, our wedding colors were identical, the flowers were practically the same, as well as the cake- all without any prior discussion.
My family, including DH, thinks it?s ok to still use Brianne for our daughter. I think otherwise. I feel like it takes away from the ?specialness? and uniqueness of our daughter. I know I?m being selfish but I don?t want anyone I know to use the same name we do, especially when it?s another family member and they?re born only a month apart. Am I being ridiculous? Would you stick with the name or choose a different one? Please help!
