Whats in a name??

Before I begin let us all watch one of my favorite scenes from SATC............

That scene is SO relatable for me and it has happened 2 times to me so far. And yes, these people KNEW my "names" and then after they picked them out they also played dumb! HOW RUDE! I know I know.....just like on the show....I am not even pregnant or have plans to be but don't we all have names picked out since we were in like High School? Admit it!
The first time this happened this person asked me my names and we not only talked about them but she went on and on about this one name to me, even emailing me about it later. And when she full on stole it she told everyone it was a "family name"! For reals.
Well, I also understand that I am about to be 32 and my FB feed is FULL of everyone's babies and kiddos so it was bound to happen............ Someone named their little girl MY NAME this week. And seeing how everyone we know went on about how cute the name was, it made me sad. I know this will sound stupid but if I ever have a girl one day it will look as if I saw her name and copied. No one will know it has been in my head since I met Matt. hahaha! And yes, I realize how insane it sounds for me to be "jelly" that someone I know from college picked my name first but it's how I feel people. And NO I will not tell you the name.
I know my empty womb can't call dibs but I am allowed a little harmless ranting on my blog. Maybe? Does the cheese stand alone?

As a little girl I grew up thinking of my dream wedding, dream husband & kids! That is just what we did as little girls nothing wrong with that! I am now 24 & I thought I would done be married & having kids by now! I had a miscarriage of 2 girls & it broke my heart it broke our hearts! I am not married nore have I had kids since but I want to & when I see names I have picked for them it breaks my hearts & tears at my strings :( so no darling girl you are not alone! Many feel this way I am sure.

Nope, I feel the same way you do! Mark and I have a few names picked out and I would be so upset if someone stole my names. LOL! I 1000% undertand!

If it makes you feel any better, one of David's cousins already named one of their kids "my name" AND one of his BFF's has the same name for their DOG. Argh.

You can hate me if you want. If I ever have a little girl I will name her Rebecca (after myself) and call her Bex. Get it, Bex and Max!! Cole Dewey's little girl is named Rebecca and they call her Bex and this is where I got the idea. And she so knows I will steal it if the opportunity ever presents itself. She still loves me...I think.

Rant away my friend! You are entitled!

This happened to my sister! Her sister in law stole their future daughters name and she was SO mad!
