I named my daughter Melinda Catherine, not after my two cousins although to this day they like to think it's so. My great great grandmothers name was Melinda and my ex husbands great great grandmothers name was Catherine. This idea worked for us since we couldn't agree on a name for her.
My ex husbands name is Joel David. My ex boyfriends name is David Denis. There were many similiarities and it didn't help having the same names in there. when in an argument I'd often call David, joel. He'd laugh then we'd move on. Eventually, he started to realize what Joel was like to live with. He wanted to meet Joel but we hadn't had any communication for 20 years. at 30 yrs. of time gone by, we spoke on the phone and exchanged a few emails. I even spoke to his wife. I found out that we think the same way. (so, he married me all over again she just has a different name). This came about from a crisis my daughter was going through. Looking thru the hour glass, nothing has changed in my opinion of Joel. He's the same as he was, why did I think he would change. goes back to the saying of we cannot change people, or people do not change into someone they are not.
I have another cousin named Julia. She was named after her Aunt Julia.
