We live in [name]California[/name] and most of my family lives in [name]Washington[/name]. My husband really likes the name [name]Alexander[/name], nn [name]Xander[/name]. I do like the name and I think both would sound ok with our last name. BUT my cousin’s son has that name (nn [name]Alex[/name]). We aren’t up that way to visit except 1-2x a year but I do keep in contact with my grandparents and occasionally Facebook with my cousin. If we stick with this name, my grandparents would have two grandchildren named [name]Alexander[/name], albeit with different last names and nicknames. Is that too weird??
Edit - my cousin’s son name might only be Alex. I’m not positive but I’ve never heard anybody call him Akexander.
