Name worry

It seems like everyone is pregnant right now but that's not true.  I mean a whole lot of celebrities are pregnant but I don't know them.  But there are some pregnant people that I do know who will have babies this year.  Now we are not planning on trying until at least July.  But I had a sudden and paranoid thought just now.  What if one or more of those ladies uses one of the names we like?  And it's not that I don't want them to use any of them for fear of losing them but what if they use my favorite name and then I use that name too?  I don't want them to think I am copying anyone, but most of them are people I never see and I am really only friends with on Facebook.  So unless you are related to me then I really don't care if our children have the same name.  But I know how people can be about baby names.

We currently have one favorite boy name and then one boy name that I liked and BT doesn't care for.  And three girl names, one more favored than the others.  So there is some variety.  I think there is only one name that I would be sad to lose for a girl.  But then I think, given my relationship to these ladies, I would still choose that same name.  I know this is a weird worry.  It's just people get weird about baby names and uniqueness and all.  I already told co-worker I don't care what she and another lady who is trying for a baby name their children.  My names are chosen and if they are the same as theirs then oh well.  It's not like I will work with them forever.  And, of course, everything is subject to change when I actually get pregnant again.
