Dating a girl with the same name as your sister
It was only odd at first, and later if my Mom referred to my Dad by his given name and I'd have to wonder who she was talking about. I'm living with a guy with the same name as a horrible ex of mine. Especially since there was a break in time but no other relationships to speak of between them.
But I would be somewhat discomfitted by dating a woman with same first name as my sister. The thing is, I don't think of my dad as his first name, I think of him as my dad, as in his first name is My and his middle name is Dad. This is kind of strange for me because I'm a bastard.
Oh, there is one incredible benefit of him having the same name as my dad. For the last three years I've been dating a woman with the same name as my brother's ex-wife (no, not his ex-wife).
It means Dad can't call him by the wrong name and make it look believable. Now the odds are pretty slim that I would date someone, well besides the fact that I'm a big loser at love, named Cinderella. Again, no problem, just some amusement among the family. I have noted in my own mind that if I ever do meet a woman with the same name as my mother - used to be more common, but has gone out of style - I will have to check in for therapy.
We've known each other 30 years, and I'll bet that's the total times we've addressed each other by our given names.
I did for years, and not only did he have the same name as my Dad but he looked like him and in many ways acted like him too. I tease him that he's off the hook if he accidentally calls out the wrong name, but he assures me that he has us straight.
