So about two years ago a friend in my moms group was pregnant. She is one of those who does not find out the sex beforehand and does not share the names they are thinking before the baby comes. 3 weeks before she has the baby a few of us go out for dinner and names come up as a topic of conversation. I say, if I ever have another girl I will name her Eloise. The other women list their favorite names too. Well 3 weeks later she has the baby and she names her Eloise. Hard for me to believe she was thinking of it all on her own- but who can be sure.
So now we are pregnant with a girl and I still really like the name Eloise, and furthermore DH and I can not agree on any other name at all. Is it weird if I use the same name? Our kids are all different ages, so they don't play. We don't go to the same school. We don't live in the same town even. But- we have a lot of the same friends. I am also sensitive to people thinking I am unoriginal and stole her name.
