Potentially set on a name

[name_m]Hi[/name_m], my cousin and his girlfriend are expecting their first child together. They are so far set on the Name [name_m]Jacob[/name_m] since they’re having a boy however, I was hoping to use the name when I finally have a baby boy but, due to this I now may no longer be able to do so if this is the case.

What’s everyone’s thoughts on this? Also, what are some similar names to [name_m]Jacob[/name_m]?

Hmm it might depend on how close you are to your cousin and if it would bother them if you used the name too.

Similar names:

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] @mayahuel, I am very close with my cousin as we are the first cousins of each other. Anyhow, thank you for the names. They’re fantastic :slight_smile:

This happened to my parents! They wanted to name their son [name_m]Jacob[/name_m], but my aunt & uncle had a boy first and used it. Since we were a very close family, mom and dad had to pick something else. They were considering [name_m]Richard[/name_m], but ended up choosing [name_m]Thomas[/name_m].

Is it [name_m]Jacob[/name_m] that you like? Or [name_m]Jake[/name_m]? I think knowing this would help with suggestions.
