Nah, really not a problem since my brother's name is very common.It was more of a problem when I dated a guy whose name was identical to mine, save for the last letter. It would probably bother me quite a bit to date someone with my sister's name, especially at first, but I wouldn't rule out dating a girl because of it.I think there's another instance of same names but I can't remember them all. Probably not, considering I don't use my brother's name when talking to him; I go with 'bro', 'Ruffles', or a diminutive short form of his name.
My friend Mike is different than my other friend Mike and both are different than my old boss Mike - a man that I hated.
When I think of Mike the friend I don't think bad things. It would be the same with any woman that I dated, regardless of her name.
But that being said, I do have a hard time taking people seriously who have my youngest brother's name. :)Does anyone have trouble being with someone who has the same name as their sibling? I came up with a nickname for her, otherwise it would have been impossible. However, I've found that when I've met people who have the same names as people in my family - - I totally compartmentalize the names.
Meaning, when I hear the name in context of referring to whichever person is involved, I only think of that person.
