We just had a baby girl and the name we like best also happens to be the name of one of my cousins. Is it weird to have the same name within a family? My daughter and cousin would be second cousins. We asked my cousin about it and she said she really liked the idea but I’m not sure if she was just being nice to me.
We see my cousin 2 or 3 times a year, so not all that often.
My cousin is also 28 years old so it’s not like they would being playing together.
Note: we would not really be naming our baby after my cousin - we just really like the name.
