I have a friend who's in a similar situation. She wants to name her next child a particular name - but her pregnant sister-in-law is planning to name their son that same name. My friend isn't pregnant, but is trying to become so. Do you think it would be awkward for her to use the same name once she is expecting?
Likewise, my sister is expecting a baby. She really likes the name Bianca, as do I. Would it be odd for me to name a future daughter Bianca if she has a cousin with the same name?
