Do your families have already-used names you love?
Oh, yes we do. But some people in my family don't have a problem with copying.
I have 4 Edwards (granted they're all father/sons, but it's kinda hard to say, "Give this to Ed," when you're not sure which one they mean), 2 Brians, 3 Stevens, and 2 Williams (one goes by Bill, the other Will/Liam).
Other names that I love are
Emily (though I have 2 cousins by this name, one is an in-law and one is my cousin)
Emma (daughter of Emily )
Collin (I LOVE this name, but my cousin name her little boy this 2 years ago - and I'm not about to copy)

Mum of Jessica no. 2 (cousin on my side) did mention a couple of weeks ago how much she liked James (she's not pregnant)... I just said "Well, your daughter's got a cousin with the same name as her, would you like the same to happen to your son, if you have one?" Of course, I made a face to go with that 'innocent' question and she must've noticed I wouldn't be too happy about it

I might consider some of them for middle names....but I don't know. I don't think they really fit well with the names that I like.

There’s a lot of names in my family that I really love. My grandpa and uncle have my two favorite boys’ names -- Jake and Austin -- and I’m determined to use them anyway because I’m just that stubborn My cousins are named Jacoby, Karl, Hayden and Adriana… I love their names, too; probably would never use them though, because I’m insanely close to those four. Helena is another family favorite and is my great-grandmother’s name and my grandma’s middle… I think it’s one I’ll probably use someday
One name that I really love is Gavin, but I’m not sure how to ever go about using it because it was supposed to be my brother’s name prior to my dad dying, and mom’s still pretty sensitive about it for obvious reasons. I might bring it up someday, but I just don't know.
Josh had a grandpa named Remy… that’s a name I’m slowly starting to get attached to as well.
Also: my best friend Rachel has two little ones, Vienna Rachelle and Emmett Nicholas. I never planned on using either, but I still love both of their names

The names of my cousins on my mom's side, my sisters and me are as follows...
and Cori Noel
A lot of these names were also passed down from older generations...Katherine, Ann, Claire, & Sara.
I really don't see a problem with it as long as the first names are different and they are called by a different name. I'm sure me and my sisters will carry on a few of the traditional family names. If you hadn't guessed, my family is ALL girls.
