When Dale Weds Dale

My daughter is engaged to marry a man with the same first name. Not Dale, but you get the picture. I can already see their mail and Christmas gifts and what all else. Confusion. If I were they, I would start using my middle name, at least one of me. Oh, well. It's going to be fun.

Maybe one of them will develop a nickname. Or would she be keeping her own last name?

They could be Dale 1 and Dale 2.

That's what we did when we had 3 Bobs in our group.

Heehee. Funny!

My dad's name was John, my brother's name is John, I married a man named John, my sister married a man named John, my other sister is currently dating a man named John.

Talk about confusing......

@chai2,
That what I'd always thought, chai: you live in polygamy and your real name is Bob .... or John. (See: chai, chai 1, chai 2, ...!)

@boomerang,
I've know 2 woman whose first name was the same name as their husbands last name.

In both cases, the woman took her husbands last name.

So far there have been no problems. I was projecting to after the wedding. So far, neither has offered a solution, or even seemed to noitice an issue to address. To me, the biggest name screw up is when George Foreman had several sons and named them all George.

@edgarblythe,
yeah, I'd heard that about George.

I assume they went by their middle names, but maybe not...

Does she sound like she's stuttering or indecisive? Laughing

So, let us say there are two Danas. One could be Dana Dear. The other can be Dana Honey. I would think the Dear would be the husband, and the Honey would be the wife. Just my two cents. It might also de-fuse potential arguments, since it may be harder to be angry when someone just called one Honey or Dear, I believe.

@Foofie,
Or one could take a whole new name. My cousin's son had the same name as his father, a fairly old fashioned name that I suppose he is now known by at work. But ever since he was something like ten, we've all known him as Gator.

So, working off of that idea, we could have Gator and Gazelle...

They used to fight a lot, hence "The war of the Roses".

last evening, I received a message from a new member of a site on which I post my lyrics. It was from a Juliet something. The letter read, paraphrasing, that Juliet is madly in love with me. Instant true love, based on my profile, which includes a photo. Since I am happily married, I was more taken aback than flattered. Write me back, it said. I have something wonderful to tell you. What flashed in my mind was the Nigerian swindle emails I get. So, I went to Juliet's profile to see if any clues were there. The profile was mostly blank, but it did state that Juliet is male. Hmm. I copied the message and sent it to the administrator, along with the question, "What do you think about it?"
