This did happen with our Violet (who should have been called Sheena or Amazonia or something anyway, lol) because a few months later Ben Affleck named his dd Violet, and then a few months later Dave Grohl from Foo Fighters named his dd Violet.
Sigh. Still. It is very possible to overthink the whole name thing. I always thought if we had a 3rd girl we'd name her Gwyneth but was wary about the whole Gwyneth Paltrow thing... but at some point you go (or at least I do) Heck, I like the name! I'm going for it!
In our old neighborhood in NYC there were two little girls (besties) who lived on our block named Oprah and Henessey.
So if you stop short of that, I think you'll be okay.
