I have refused dates with any other Dan.
My ex is a narcissist and I never want that sort of person in my life again -- and if I became involved with a 'Dan' the ex would think it was because I missed him and was wanting him back!
My oldest son is Alan Joseph and I call him Joey sometimes as a personal lovey nickname -- he knows it means I love him and he likes it.
I named all my kids after Saints -- Alan Joseph, Gregory Matthew, Catherine Elizabeth, Susanna Marie, Julia Christine, Theresa Nicole -- and pray for the Saints' intercession and guidance daily!
I noticed that a LOT of the guys I had crushes on or was friends with and/or dated had the same names as my dad and 3 brothers -- Tom, Chris, Scott and Dan (Thomas, Christian, Scott, and Daniel) but I think it had more to do with those names being common than anything else.
Names seem to come in and go out in popularity so the people in your age range often seem to have the same few names.
My own name was not common -- I never knew another Rachel until I was in college.
I love names -- eyes and names draw me in!
