You’ve probably heard the advice to avoid naming siblings after famous lovers ([name]Romeo[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name]). Shortly after reading that, I realized a similar faux pas: naming children after famous enemies. [name]Just[/name] like you wouldn’t want a [name]Clark[/name] and a [name]Lois[/name], a [name]Clark[/name] and an [name]Alex[/name] could be awkward. Likewise a [name]Nelson[/name] and a [name]Napoleon[/name] (on top of [name]Napoleon[/name] being too much on its own).
But the one I just thought of is… Is it bad if siblings have the same names as famous relatives who weren’t siblings? To use names that are flamboyant on their own, [name]Cassiopeia[/name] and [name]Andromeda[/name]. That was, in fact, the matchy pair that made me think of this question.
As you can gather from the title, I do think it could get awkward.
