How would you feel is a close friend or family used the same name you used for your child? Would you not care? Be slightly perturbed? Or be upset?
I agree with Kim. I don't think it would bother me is the child was already born. I know that I intentionally eliminated all names of people we knew when naming my child. But if someone else doesn't have an issue with it they can use the name.
I did the same thing, Stacy! I actually wanted to name my daughter after my mom but she forbade it, haha. I just crossed out all family/friend names after that.
I'd be very upset. I think because having a baby is new and special for us, by extension, so is the thought and care we put into a name . By taking that, someone is stealing part of the experience, and I would not like that one bit.
