2 Granddaughters In The Same Family With The Same First Name?
My husband and I like the name “Ruby” for our first daughter’s name. However, my dad already has a granddaughter named “Ruby,” who thus is also my niece. BUT, she is 27 years old, lives on the other side of the country from my dad and us and has had very little contact with my dad and me over the years. So, is it okay to use the name even though it has already been “taken?” Would it be strange for my dad to have 2 granddaughters with the name “Ruby” even though he has almost no communication with the adult one, but will see the baby one quite frequently? "Ruby" is the first name of my dad's deceased mother.
