I would be livid. But you should still use the name when your time comes for a baby. Just because you all are friends doesn’t necessarily mean your kids will be best friends – so it won’t necessarily mean there’ll be two “Emily”s running around together…know what I mean? And then if they say anything to you for using their kid’s name…well, they won’t…because they already know they stole it from you!

Not to sound harsh (and I wish this hadn’t happened), but this is why you keep the name to yourself until you have a baby. I don’t think they did anything wrong – you gave them an idea, maybe they didn’t think much of it at first, but then they decided they loved it more than their original choice. As you point out, you don’t have a patent on it. There is absolutely no reason for them not to use it if they like it. You’re not even pregnant yet, right?

In future, I think it’s fine for you to use the name even though they have already. or if not, there are hundreds of great names out there.

I’m sorry that happened.  But I don’t think that just because they used it first, you would be weird to use it.  Even if you two are friends, it doesn’t mean your kids would be too so you shouldn’t worry about it too much!

That’s soooo wrong!  I mean, if they loved the name and needed to use it, they should of at least said so before the baby was born.  You’re right, you don’t own the name but that’s what a friend should do.  My friends and I have all, at one point, discussed our future baby names in order to curb this kind of thing.  Its kinda funny because we’ve been like, “Omg, I love the name Mikayla… don’t use it k” 

I hope you don’t feel like you can’t use it too, you totally can someday.

OMG, I’d be so pissed! That’s precisely why I won’t tell anyone our baby names.

Oh my gosh I would be so irritated too.  I’ve had my heart set on a girl’s name for forever…And I’ve pretty much come to the conclusion that I’m going to name her my picked out name no matter what…even if she has first cousins w/ the same name. lol

Terrible. I’d use the names anyway- when are your kids going to see each other anyway? It’s not like it’s the same family…

I think I would be complimented if my friend chose a baby name I’d picked out- it means that I have great taste! 😉
