A mother-to-be explained by AN UPSET that she told her friend the name they had chosen for her baby, only to have her announce that she had always liked the name and that if she had a son, That’s what she would call her son.
The woman said that she and her husband had researched many different names, but the only one they could agree on was Miles.
But when the pregnant woman told her friend, the friend explained that she had always planned to use that name if she had a boy and that both would have to have the same name.
The woman explained: “For a while before going out with friends, we discussed whether I would give birth to a boy or a girl this time (I’m 20 weeks pregnant) and then we started the topic of naming. .
“I’ve been told that for a boy, we’re really struggling to find anything we like and the only name I think I like is Miles.

“One of my friends gasped and said ‘No you can’t, that’s the only name I like and that’s what I would call ours if we had a son. !’ (Planned to start trying for kids once they moved out) – she was pretty serious and I laughed it off and said I can get another girl anyway and don’t worry.
“Anyway, it’s a boy. So far we’ve only really liked Miles, although there’s still time to find other names.
“We went out to eat recently and the name question came up again, from Dfriend and I jokingly said ‘Oh you don’t want to know!’
“And she asked if it was Miles, she actually looked pretty frustrated but was quick to say ‘they’re going to have to have the same name, so don’t whine if I choose that too!”
“Although I wouldn’t care if she ended up having a son of the same name, I almost felt like I took it from her and felt pretty bad she was such a lovely person and would do anything for anyone so I’m worried she’ll just flash a smile while resenting my choice.”
Mumsnet users were quick to participate in their comments.
One said: “As is often said here, no one owns a name but your friend seems determined to try. Don’t feel guilty – you mentioned it first anyway.”
Another said: “I think they’ll both have to have the same name. If it’s really the only name one of them likes.
“She’s not pregnant yet so she’ll probably never have a son, you can’t help but give your baby a name you like more than a hypothetical child in the future.
“She had at least nine months to get used to the idea or come up with a different name.”
A third said: “First come, first served. You get to choose first.”
