First names like middle names KyleySays Due June 4 (boy); 2 kids; Japan 269 posts

Is it weird to give a baby a first name that was similar to his/her siblings middle name?



Examples --
DD1: Marianne Lily
DD2: Lillian Renee



DD1: Regina Catherine
DD2: Cate Genevieve

No, not at all. My DD has two middle names and I have picked out similar names to them for future daughters.

I don't think it's weird. How often are middle names used anyway? They're mostly just for paper.

I wouldn't, but I also think it takes away from the individuality of the child.

It's totally fine. Just don't name your daughter Cate. it's not a name, it's a nick name. Naming your child a nick name is just mean. ( my name is Vicki, not Victoria, and I explain it endlessly, and hate it. My sister is Janie, not Janet or even Jane. She hates it too. my mom sucks. especially since our other 2 sisters are Tiffany and Stephannie. Yeah, I know it's almost the same, but they don't even live in the same country as eachother anymore, so now that they're grown up they have no more explaining to do)

Why not change your name to Victoria then?

Catie won't age well but Cate is just as formal as Rose.

ok fine, you got me. I considered it, but it just seems wrong, as if it's disrespectful to my parents or something. I don't really hate it THAT much, but I would definitely have preferred a real name.

I mean, you're the one that's stuck with the name - signing it, saying it, hearing it, so on and so forth - so it seems only fair that you should like the name. Besides, it's not like changing it to Victoria would be as drastic as if you had picked a completely different name altogether.
