Do you know any couples in which both partners have the same name, whether same sex couples, male/female names with the same nickname, or a gender neutral name?
I used to know a Jaime and a Jamie who dated. FI’s brother recently started dating someone with the same nickname. There is a lot of “hey, Sam, blah blah question?… no, not you, the other one!”

Yeah that is weird! My cousin Jessie just married a Jesse. They were able to do some really cute things with their wedding invitations =) I bet it does get confusing though.

I’ve never seen American Beauty.
At least Jesse and Jessie are spelled differently haha!
Nicky and Vicky are cute. I knew a family that was Randy, Sandy, Mindy, Mandy… and Zach. Um, really, Andrew was not the obvious choice?
We say things like “let’s invite Sam-squared to see Iron Man 2 with us tonight!” They think it’s funny.

I know a couple whos names were as similar as Jamie Anderson and James Anderson.* Same last name, almost same first name. Made it easy for her to not have to change her name though! It gets confusing because both sides of the family are ‘the Andersons’ so you really have to pay attention when they talk about their families lol.
*not actual names.

Wow, what are the chances of same last name and a similar first name?

I do not know of any couples that share a first name but like ROUX I do know a couple or two that share the same last name – like a Joe Schmoe is marrying a Jane Schmoe.

i love things like this! my friend’s sister is Danielle married to Daniel.
It’s also weird when your partner’s name is also the name of someone in your family – like a parent or sibling. My fiance has the same name as my brother and it’s a little weird!

I don’t know anyone with the same first name but my cousin became Kelly Kelly when she got married.

I do know a couple with the same last name but different first names, too. It’s not exactly Smith, but it’s a pretty common name.

I used to know a Kelly & Kelly that were married (like Ottowa bride, also a man and a woman), and I also knew a woman named Courtney who married a man whose last name was Courtney – so her married name was Courtney Courtney!

My aunt Tracey married a Tracy. She even took his last name. Finally after way too many confusing phone calls (Is Tracy there please? This is Tracey. Tracy, what a high voice you have!) my uncle finally swapped his middle name (Karl) for his first name.
