  • It would be pretty odd if she had my dad's name. You see, my dad's name is "Robert". There's a feminine version of that name. "Roberta". Also, I have the same name as my dad. (I'm the third with him being Jr. of his dad.) If me and my girlfriend were named Robert and Roberta, it'd feel silly. lol

    What would be extremely weird if we both went by the exact same name! The names Robert and Roberta are both known for sometimes haing the nickname "Robbie", which is what I call myself. Both of us calling ourselves Robbie? lmao That'd be insane! I/We would might have to give up my,(and probably her), lifelong nickname!

    Still, the awkwardness wouldn't make me dump her. That'd be stupid. Maybe selfish, too. It would just take some getting used to. (Plus my dad going by "Rob" would help if she went by Roberta, being a bit less similar to it. Another thing that helps is that I only call my dad "dad". lol)

  • Though, both of may parents have suitably rare last names, so anyone with that name is likely to be related in some way. My best friend has my Dad's first name and I have dated one also (at least one). I also dated a couple with my brother's first name.

  • Sure, why not. My mom's name is rather uncommon but gaining in popularity again it seems, according to online statistics, anyway (and really nobody around here named their child like my dad's name these days).
    Also, I wouldn't mind being reminded of my mom at all, so..

  • I said yes because the name doesn't really matter, it depends on what type of person they're. At the end of the day it's just a name in my opinion.

  • My moms name is pretty uncommon for girls in my age range, it was more common back when she was born. I think I've only ever met 2. I don't think I'd date a girl that had that name though because of the fact its rather uncommon, it would just seem too weird. If my mom had a more common name I don't think I'd have as much of a problem dating a girl with the same name.

  • as long as they aren't a direct relative, why not? the not having relations within a family thing has been scientifically proven to only extend to the first cousin or so as far as having any genetic issues, so someone who is not related but has the same name should be no issue.

  • I would except I might refer to her as her name and my parents as the least formal dad or mom. Just not think to hard over the names. Although its bound to become a bad joke LMAO.

  • Mom has a common name. Not only that but she regularly goes by her first and middle name. So that'd be two names to avoid the rest of my life. Pretty sure it would be easy to get over. I've had crushes on girls with the same name no problem.

  • It's just a name, having the name we have ain't our fault. Of course I would, she'd have the same name but she obviously wound't be my mother.

  • Nope. It'd be too weird. Hell, all 3 of my brothers have names that can be girls names too and I'd feel weird if they had the same name as any of my brothers.

  • If I like her, I don't care about the name, obviously she didn't get it for the same reason my mom got hers, or at the same time. Some names are extremely common though

  • Umm that's a hard one. I'll probably not. But if she's really good to keep, I'll use the middle name or a nick name for her.
