I personally wouldn't since I'd associate their name during naughty thoughts and flop

  • I dated three guys who has the same name as my relatives...

    I voted no, and here's why;

    Those three relatives are my granddad (who died when I was 3 so I don't remember him well), my uncle (who died before I was born) and another uncle (who died when I was 1).

    I wouldn't date someone who had the same name as the relatives I have in my family who I am actually close to and got to know. I would be really put off if I were having sex with someone who has my dad or brothers name... can't exactly say it without picturing them.

  • It seems weird to think about, but I don't call my parents by their names so it wouldn't really affect me too much. I don't like the idea of it, but it definitely wouldn't be a deal breaker.

  • Yeah, cause I don't even really know my father, he's not a part of my life. But I doubt it'll ever happen, it's a typical Latvian name and I doubt I'll date anyone in Latvia.

  • I adore my father and would name my kid after him but I would not date a guy with his name.

    1. That's my dad's name.
    2. Ed is an older generation's name and I doubt I'd find an Ed to date lol

  • Sure. My dad's name is Steve. I don't mind that name and it's common enough that I wouldn't only associate it with my dad.

  • I don't call my parents by their first names, their names to me are kind of "mom and dad". Yeah, there would be a slight association, but it's not a big deal.

  • I don't think it would matter to me, except i said no because they're are certain names that I have exceptions to, Steve for example. I won't date a steve. My father's name is steve so no. But Say they had my moms name or something? I wouldn't care. I feel like names have a effect on the child and who they grow into. I just won't involve myself with certain people because of their names. Steve, George, Brook. Are some of the names I'm just so untrusting of.

    • "and"? Do they all have the same name?

    • Show All
    • But saying "and" means they have the same name, saying "or" would mean they have different names.

    • @RedAmulet

      Yes and they do have the same first name. That's why the QA asked the question and that's why I said and instead of or. Because or is comparing while and is including. So what if one is the first, second and third they still have sane first name. When George Bush (most recent president) was president people didn't say George Bush the second or Jr. we just called him by his name.

      I said and because it applies to all of them not just one of them out of the options i gave you. It's all of the above.

  • My dad has a rather common name, so I would.

  • Yes, if I really liked them, but even I have to admit, I've never liked the name Larry. Plus it would be doubly weird since that's my younger brother's name as well.

  • Yes, i have dated a guy with the same name and spelling as my dad's name. It didn't bother me because I don't think of my dad by his name, to me he's Dad.

  • Uhhhh yeah, considering there are probably thousands of people with those names, it would limit a lot of options for me and therefore be quite stupid of me to say no lol 😜
