I shared a cubicle at work with a same-named guy, and he was way more of an ass than my bro ever was...My dad's name was Thaddeus - you don't run into that much, but I don't think it would have deterred me.I wouldn't be bothered at all - and I don't even like my sister.Each person is different and his/her name is only one aspect of him/her.
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.The odds of meeting someone with either of those first two as their actual name are slim.: D Also, I don't call my husband by his real name very often either. So even if he had shared the same name as my brother, I really can't see how it'd impact on anything.Now, if a guy shared MY name, that'd probably be kind of hard to take. But I'd imagine it's an issue for Kym/Kim, and to a lesser extent, Daniel/Danielle.So I don't think it'd even register that my dude would have the same name as my brother. Hell, one of them has a name that I've only encountered in a character played by Kim Basinger (I'd hit that) and a Nobel Prize winning author.Brother #2 married a girl with the same name as our sister, only she spells it slightly differently.My half-sister married a man with the same first name as my older full-brother.When the parents moved out to the same state as half-sis, and older full-brother followed to go to law school, conversation got a little confusing as to which man we were talking about.I know this seems really shallow and possibly pointless, but I have to know if it's just me with this phobia.My sister's name in not that uncommon, I don't come across it often, but it's out there.
