My brother and SIL are expecting their second girl in October. Their current daughter is named Payton Marie. Girl #2 is going to be Something Elizabeth. (How sweet, yes, to give her my name?) My brother keeps saying to my SIL "Hey, what about Morgan? I really like Morgan. Why aren't we considering Morgan?" And my SIL keeps replying, "Because, numbnuts, Morgan is your niece's middle name." (Tis true, of course, Amelia Morgan.) Now, Chris and I have told them we don't mind, and Mia would be over the moon with bliss if they named the baby Morgan. What do you think about two first cousins, out of a grand total of four, sharing a first/middle name?
I think it's (1) totally fine, (2) totally non-confusing, and (3) adorable.
What does everyone else think? Okay to have a Morgan Elizabeth and an Amelia Morgan as cousins? Let's have a poll over to the right. [Poll closed; see results below.]
