Unrelated, but still funny.
"The guy's name is Jesse and the girl's name is Jessie. With an I."
This got me thinking about my own unisex name. If you've ever read the bottom of my 'About' section then you already know that I hate the fact that in response to me introducing myself as "Alex" I often get told, "That's a boys name." For arguments sake, let me reiterate: Alex is a unisex name. It is short for either Alexander or Alexandra. One is the male version of the name. The other is the female version of the name. Understand? Great. Moving on.
Since I already have too many apprehensions with my name as it is, I don't think it would be possible for me to ever date someone who has the same name as me (this is all in the hypothetical off chance that Andrew and I don't live happily ever after, of course).
I realise that this is all kinds of unfair. A persons name does not define them. But, yelling out my own name seems kind of strange (take that however you want).
Could you date someone if their name was the same as yours? Or have I just gone crazy?
