I have been obsessed with names since I got pregnant. DH didn't want to join in the fun until we found out the sex. We've both enjoyed playing around with names since the anatomy scan. Last week, we decided on a name we both loved.
Then, we found out this weekend that a colleague of mine had her baby and gave him the same name. We aren't close enough that I would automatically take the name off the table (although it would make for a few awkward moments since our department sends out baby announcements), but we had talked about nanny sharing once I go back to work. It was only one conversation and we haven't made any plans since, but I think it would be good for our guy to have daily interactions with another baby in the first few years. Just not one with the same name.
Dumb vent, but I'm a little disappointed.
