would you use the baby name of your MOm's best friend's daughter's baby?

did you get that? LOL My MOm's best friend is Gayle. Gayle's daughter Vicki has a toddler named Brenna. H and I really like that name and H is all excited b/c its a Jedi name as well Anyway, we're not pg or anything, but we had the hardest time picking a girl's name last time. WE didn't know the sex of the baby and thankfully, Ethan was a boy b/c we had his name solidly picked during my first trimester. We both like Brenna. We live in CA, my MOm andGayle live in CT, and Gayle's daughter and granddaughter also live in CA, but like 9 hours away. I've met Vicki and Brenna once or twice, but that's it (she gave us her crib when we lived in San Diego too). Its doubtful we'll ever see them again, b/c that would mean we were all in CT at the same time. I don't know if Vicky would care. I imagine she really wouldn't. Of course, my MOm and Gayle woudl have to say, "My Brenna" when they would talk about their grand daughters. GAyle's brenna would also be like 3 or 4 years older than ours if we ever have one. We're only having one more and if its a boy, it doesn't matter anyway.

So, would you? Would you ask?

Re: would you use the baby name of your MOm's best friend's daughter's baby?

I would use it anyway. I had the name Emma picked for a girls name before I pg with our first son. DH's cousin found out when I was pg with #2 that if the baby was a girl her name would be Emma....she got all pissy because their nana's name was Emma. She actually tried crying to her auntie (my MIL) saying that I couldn't name the baby Emma....that was 'her' baby name. Mind you she is not even in a relationship! So MIL tried to convince me to pick a different name...unbelievable....she claimed she just didn't want me to name the baby Emma, she says she just didn't like the name. Right!

His entire family (except immediate) lives in the Boston area....so I still stick to my theory that if I have a girl her name will be Emma......or Aspen.

I'd use it, I did the same thing with Payton. My Mom's friend's daughter has a son named Payton that is 15 years old. She thought it was cool that I liked it so much I named my kid the same thing.
