"Stealing" a name?
This one is a bit hypothetical and not at all urgent: My husband and I are in that not-not-tryng to have a baby stage, so of course, we're talking about names non-stop. I only have one true love for a boy's name, which he has vetoed, to my extreme dismay. But the other day, he brought up Graham, which I really like. The problem is that I know it's the very favorite boy's name of a close friend. I believe it has a family connection for her. She's probably a couple years away from having a baby, so again, it's not exactly a race to the delivery room. We don't live close to each other, but I love her dearly, and I think I would feel guilty about using her top choice. What do you think? Can someone have dibs on a name? What are the ethics of name snatching?
