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 had a thing with a guy who's sister had the same name as me. He didn't really ever say my name lol. Especially with sexual talk.

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 :(

My boyfriend and my dad have the same name-- spelled differently but still.

It's not that weird to me but maybe after being with him for so long the awkwardness has worn off.


Was thinking how weird this is until I remembered my Dad and boyfriend have the same name. Luckily it's one of those names that have multiple abbreviations. They both use a different version unless it's for something official.

My mother in law and I have the same name. Very similar middle names too. Luckily everyone calls her Becky and me by Rebecca. It was never awkward for me but I can see the point.
