What about someone who shares your sibling's first name?

For me? Impossible.


It's a small world, but to date person with the same first name as my one of siblings, it's just weird a feeling.

In the US it would be awkward, but apparently there are only a fairly small number of surnames in use in Korea, and mine is one of the 10 most common surnames, so it wouldn't be that strange if it were there.

Both my parents had the same last name before they married and were not relatives. It put me in a few awkward spots when I was younger. I remember I got two F's on family tree projects in school both during elementary and high school when I was otherwise an A student; they said "You're mothers maiden name is not the same as her married name". They were promptly bitched out by my parents. Another time I was with one of my cousins from my mom's side of the family when I was a teenager and for some reason he asked me my last name and then he was like "you took your mom's last name?" and I was so sick of explaining it to various people I said "yeah I got my mom's last name."

I personally would only date someone with my last name if I could be absolutely sure we weren't related and seeing how I related to two separate lineages with the same last name I would be very hesitant. I'd have a hard time just dating someone having one of my grandmothers maiden names.

However being a product of two people marrying that had the same last names I have to be of the opinion there is nothing wrong with it as long as there is no actual relation. Many modern names (at least in English) are Americanized names, names derived from occupations, or names saying you are the son of a distant male ancestor first name so that doesn't mean you are related just because of a common name.

Never thought about that. It would be kind of strange, but I think I'd get over it quickly enough.

Well I'd never marry to begin with, but speaking hypothetically, I would not have a problem with it.. It'd take away the awkward conversation of who takes the others surname.

Hawkings is pretty rare. The only people I know of live either in California or spread throughout the U.K. I can't marry anybody

You can say to the person, "Hey no name changes if we got married!"

This almost happened to me. We broke up due to... reasons, but we both had the same last name. We used to joke about telling people we're related.

I have an extremely common name, though. There's at least four other families living in my area with my last name and none of us are related. And yes, I live in America and am not of asian descent.

Mines not to common but I would still date them if they had the same second name

Given how rare my last name is ( Character ) it would be quite difficult to find someone with the same last name that I am not related to. As for marrying them, it would certainly make me think twice, for fear that they may be related.

Been there done that. He's Welch, and my last name is too.

But have you guys ever considered that when people come to usa they make you change your last name, some not most..
So technically it would be a little less weird. My last name was so uncommon here. Barely ever saw it. But now I see that last name everywhere. I'm like what hold up! But my moms family name was changed. My grandfather is korean so when he tried to come to the USA legally of course, they made him change his last name. .__. So that name he took is so common. A lot of Hispanic people have that name now. So I don't think I would feel weird, but then again you just never know.

I haven't met someone I'm unrelated to with my last name. But it would be funny. I would have to question or do some research to find out if we actually are related, but otherwise, I think it'd be pretty neat.
