I asked and didn't tell DH's cousin, because I knew she was picking something similar. I didn't want to tell ours because I didn't want her to pick it! I just wanted to see if she was considering it. So that is why someone might ask but not tell theirs.

We had picked Harvey for ours, she was considering Hank and Henry and a couple other H names, I wanted to know if Harvey had crossed her radar WITHOUT planting the seed in her head, because we didn't tell anyone until he was born. We did tell that it was similar to what cousin picked (she settled on Henry, but told us Hank when we asked, so I'm glad I didn't give her the idea of Harvey). That said, they live in another state and we don't see them often, the kids are second cousins, so not terribly close.

Harvey and Henry are close, but different, so it worked out fine. But like I said, I didn't want to plant any ideas. We were due within a week of each other.

I would have said, well it looks like if we have the same gender then they'll have the same name. Don't even give the notion that your willing to change it. Just act like you don't care and are sticking to it. Most likely they will change their minds because they'r probably thinking the same way you are...that if you announce the name first then you have proof they copied. lol

We announced name ideas pretty early on each time. I got some comments because people feel like they have an opinion on what we name our kid? I just didn't respond and didn't budge, noone has said anything since as they know it's set in stone at this point.

Let me just tell you, Dante is an AMAZING name 😃 My almost 15 year old is named Dante and we could not have chosen a better name for him. I love it particularly BC it is not a John or Mike. Dante has only ever had ONE Dante in school with him, and he is actually a year older. Even he loves that he has a different name from everyone, but its not so uncommon that people get it wrong. He is the only Dante other than the one at his school that I have ever met. Granted, I'm into uncommon names with powerful meanings (Dante means enduring... And my child most def lives up to his name). The name we have chosen for his little sister to be doesn't even rank on the baby charts as that's how uncommon it is, but its meaning is powerful (victor of the people). I tend to fall in love with names meanings first and then the name.

Buttttt may I ALSO say that I totally understand not wanting someone to name-jack you!!! My girlfriend called me up a few weeks ago frantic BC she thought a celebrity had taken my baby name!!! I FREAKED OUT and went into a frenzy looking it up. THANKFULLY, the name is not the same Lol. Similar, but different. I was worried that people would think that's where I got the name from and I would just be a copy cat. Especially since it was a celebrity using it. Meanwhile, I got it from my favorite musical since I was about 10 years old. The name just came to me one day and I fell in LOVE. Also, before that I was convinceddddd I was having a boy... As soon as I thought of her name, I just knew she was a girl. My suspicions were confirmed a few days later when they called me with my genetic testing results almost a week early.
If you are 100% that's what babys name will be, just start referring to baby as Dante or Alyssa now. Let your other friends worry about it.

When do you find out what you are having?
This. I wouldn’t even wait to know. I’d just say ___ days until we find out if baby is boy name or girl name!

I also say use it either way. You should love the name you give your kid, so don’t change on account of a potential glory thief.
