    What an odd predicament. I honestly dont know what I’d do.  I dont think I would change it though.  You both picked the name independantly of each other and love the name.

    “Which one?  The dog or the baby?. . . “

    I was going to vote for changing the puppy’s name (because my parents had a dog with a name similar to mine when I was little  and I hated it). But then I saw how she picked the name you liked to give to her daughter. Did she even ask how you felt about using your favorite name for her kid?

    This is a really silly thing for friends to bicker over.

    Two sets of neighbors both independently picked the same names for their baby boys, while pregnant; the boys were born 6 weeks apart, and when the neighbors found out about the name overlap (while still pregnant), they thought it was hilarious.

    I’m sure she may be a little emotional right now, but if it were my good friend – I would change the name for her.

    I wouldn’t change the name of my puppy.  That’s silly that she asked you that.  My name is Brittany and I’m pretty sure there’s a dog breed named Brittany.  

    I googled it — there is.  It’s cute but I’m not going to ask all of those dogs to change their breed name because my name is Brittany also.  And it hasn’t scarred me as a person so I think her kid will be a-okay.

    I wouldn’t change it and I’d probably feel a little odd about her using the name you picked out long ago for your daughter (even if you can’t have one).

    She must have known that you’ve always wanted the name Noa. Why on earth would she think its okay to use it? Hellz no.

    Absolutely not. Our cats name is Lincoln and so is my friends son (he was born years after the cat). It’s never been an issue. I agree with the PP’s, your friend needs to lighten up.

    Well, the dog was named first and I be willing to bet her kid isn’t the only Noa on the planet. She needs to move on.

    What the heck?  That is ridiculous!  Your dog had the name first so keep it.  It’s not like you all live together so this couldn’t even create any confusion.  Tell her NO you will not change it!!

    I mean, I would. But I’m a pushover. I don’t think you should.

    Sorry, did I misread that you have the dog a name that’s a nickname that you’re commonly called?  I would think that would be the more confusing thing!  But i agree the dog was named first and she knew you liked the name forever so the puppy can keep the name.
