  • I would but it's unlikely to happen... my moms name isn't popular anymore at all, can't remember having met anyone of my age or younger with it

  • If I was really attracted to her, then it wouldn't stop me. It'd be a bit off a turn off In the beginning though, so it'd take more for me to ask her out than it normally would.

  • I couldn't date a person with the same name as my mother... we're not on the best of terms to say the least. Being with someone who reminds me of her like that, and possibly have to call out her name in bed... eeuughhh... Sorry, I just can't...

  • Well I have the same name as my dad and I don't date guys so there's that. A girl with the same name as my mom, possible deal-breaker.

  • Yes, I would date that person.

    However, if they had my Dad's name and looked exactly like him (younger version), I'd be freaked out.

  • Nope. I won't date anyone with a name identical to any of my male relatives. Which is rough, because I only have one female cousin and one sister. So... the majority of my relatives are male.

  • My boyfriend has the same name as my brother. It didn't effect my choice to date him or not.
    It's not like they're the same person.

  • I'm gonna guess no, but the right guy could sway me. My suster's name in unisex. I'd feel weird about that too I think.

  • Sure ☺ It wouldn't bother me, it's not like I'm dating my dad 😆 Besides, I rarely call my dad by his name anyways 😄 It would be stupid to let a name be a dealbreaker 😊

    • Some people can't control what the attraction does- even if they like the person. I think it's great that it would not stop u from persueing a relationship. Thank you for your opinion

  • Nope i couldn't do it. Though my boyfriend has a Portuguese name. ^^

  • I'd find it gross, especially as my family names are all unique in this part of the world and I don't come across it often so any time I do I associate them with my family

  • Lmao what kind of shallow person wouldn't date someone because of their name?
    I hate my dad but I had a fling with a guy with the same name and it never even crossed my mind to bother me

    • For other people who may be super close with their mom or dad, being reminded of their relative with a romantic other may just be uncomfortable for them. It is different for everyone- I can easily understand a person who doesn't have a good relationship with their family not caring about that but it isn't wrong to be unattracted by that. It's not like people would want to stop the progress in a potential relationship just because of a name but it just flips a switch, Ya know? Thank you for answering
