Re: Is this out of bounds?
We are in the same situation, but with a boy name. We are debating naming our lo Isaac and then we remembered that our nephew's middle name is Isaac. Once we seriously started talking about using Isaac I had dh ask his brother if it was ok, because I didn't want to cause any problems. Without hesitation he said it was ok. I wouldn't be offended if anyone used our kids middle names as first names, but I thought I would ask because (although first names are different) dh and his first cousin have very similar names and i think it is weird.
Also, we have and Evelyn and I love it. We call her Eve or Evie most of the time and think it is a great name. Good luck!
