you knew someone else was considering?
Probably not...I'm terribly possessive about the names I choose, and having someone I even kind of knew consider a certain name would probably knock some of the polish off of it for me.
I'd check with them first, but as long as they were okay with it, I'd use it.

Yes, I would use whatever name I loved best for my child at the time my child was born, regardless of whether anyone else - family, friends, co-workers, whoever - was considering it, regardless of whether they had already used it, regardless of whether it is a family name for me or for anyone else.
