Genie we need your help! We had a baby girl name picked out thru 3 pregnancies but we had 3 boys! My m-I-l admitted to telling her our name and now our niece used the middle name we had chosen so long ago. Our name was Vivian Raelynn hers is Mia Raelyn. Can we steal back our name??

All of the girl cousins on my mom's side of the family share names in some form or other. Several of us share middle names while others have first names for middles and vice versa. Katherine Ann, Hannah Katherine, Sara Elizabeth, Jessica Elizabeth, Claire Nicole, Madeline Claire....

I don't see an issue with two family members sharing the same middle name.

Yeah steal it back! My cousin and I have two shared names with our kids - my sisters name who passed away was Candis and my cousin used her name as a middle name for her first daughter and our Grandmothers name is Marie and she also used this as a middle name for her other daughter. I named my daughter Candis Marie and the girls actually like that they have names the same :-)

Yes, it is no big deal.  It was quite common back in the old days.....:))
