Boy name issue . . .
My husband and I are expecting our third child, and we both really like the name Benjamin if it is a boy. I have loved the name since I was a little girl, and my husband likes it because it is a Star Wars reference (Ben Kenobi) and because it goes nicely with our last name.
Our dilemma is that my sister in law's ex-husband is named Ben. She went through a bitter divorce a few years ago and still harbors resentment over everything that went on.
Is it terrible of us to use the name anyway? Should we give her a heads up that we plan to use the name, or ask her feelings on it?
What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance!
