Dating someone with the same name as your ex

I shared a cubicle at work with a same-named guy, and he was way more of an ass than my bro ever was...

Nah, really not a problem since my brother's name is very common.

It was more of a problem when I dated a guy whose name was identical to mine, save for the last letter. It would probably bother me quite a bit to date someone with my sister's name, especially at first, but I wouldn't rule out dating a girl because of it.

I think there's another instance of same names but I can't remember them all. Probably not, considering I don't use my brother's name when talking to him; I go with 'bro', 'Ruffles', or a diminutive short form of his name.

The odds of meeting someone with either of those first two as their actual name are slim.

This was solved by my mom, who refers to her step-son-in-law as King Jeff and my older full-brother as Our Jeff. Me, I wouldn't have a problem dating a man with the same name as one of my brothers or my dad.

We'd just have to come up with some other code to differentiate them. I have a brother who married a woman whose name is the same in sound (spelled differently) than our sister and two sisters who married men with the same name as another brother.

So I don't think it'd even register that my dude would have the same name as my brother. Hell, one of them has a name that I've only encountered in a character played by Kim Basinger (I'd hit that) and a Nobel Prize winning author.

Brother #2 married a girl with the same name as our sister, only she spells it slightly differently.

Sister dated a guy with the same name as Brother #1.

I once had a crush on a guy with the same name as Brother #3 but that never went anywhere.

: D Also, I don't call my husband by his real name very often either. So even if he had shared the same name as my brother, I really can't see how it'd impact on anything.
