  • I wouldn't but I doubt I'd have that problem, first off I'm Asian so my parents don't exactly have names like John or Isabelle. Not to mention it's not common names either and most people in my generation don't have names like theirs and most have English names.

    Though my name is a pretty common name I'd say.

  • Yeah, no problem. Also avoids the awkward problem of calling your SO by your mom's name by accident in the heat of the moment...

    ... I'm kidding! Well, technically that problem wouldn't exist in that case.

  • My wife had the same first Name as my mother, but that isn't shocking because they were both German and it's a common Name here.

  • Yeah, I don't call my pops by his first name so I don't really equate the name with him.
    If, for some reason my SO's name is dad or anything like that, then yeah, I couldn't.
    I literally almost vomited in my mouth a little thinking about it.

  • I wouldn't think of them the same way as my parents, that'd be really weird, so sure. It's not as if I call my parents by their names anyway

  • That would be awkward tbh. Fortunately dad has a really extravagant name that isn't very common for the new generation so it's almost impossible to find someone in his name.

  • I have seen a question like this and wonder what is the issue - Is it for people who scream out their partner's name during sex - Other than that I can't see any issue

  • There are only 1,641 people in the country with my mom's first name. To put that in perspective there are 1,243,604 guys with my name. The odd are pretty low so I don't think I have to worry about it.

    But I guess if you have a real connection I shouldn't be an idiot just for her name.. who knows. It could actually be a blessing at some point

  • I don't even see how that could be anyone's problem. You do or don't like the person. They are probably one of a million or more people with that name.

  • It would be funny because if we were to get married, it would be my parents name all over again besides mine being Jr and her middle name probably not being Marie

  • If this is a serious problem to you then you may need therapy. Maybe you're lying. You could probably benefit from some form of therapy.
