My grandmother's name is Anna and my dad had an ex girlfriend named Ann. He said that's the closest he ever got to dating someone with his mom's name. My parents have pretty uncommon names so the risk isn't as strong but still I don't think I could do it. Sorry OP. I'm no better than the guy you used to like.
The more uncommon the name, the worse it is. If I met many people with my parents' names, I would be desensitized to it and wouldn't think of my parents whenever I heard them. I've never once met anyone with my parent's names (or my own, for that matter) and it would be just too damn weird.
I dont know, it might be just the name, my mom has a super uncommon name, so ive never heard of a girl with the same name but it would freak me out. And i know plenty of friends who have decided not to date interesting attractive girls because they happened to have the same name as their mother, and i know girls who wont go out with interesting attractive guys because they happen to have their dads name. Im sure op is wonderful in her own right and im sure that he wouldve said yes if you and his mother didnt share names. Sorry op for the bad luck :(
to be honest, that would be weird. that's like him having your dad's name. and that could be awkward during certain situations
