My partner is 39 weeks pregnant and we still haven't chosen a name for our boy. There is a name we both really like and fits all our criteria, except that it is very similar to mine.
My name is Jonathan, but everybody I know calls me Jo, John or by my last name. I'd like to name my son Nathan, but I'm worried that it might lead to confusion or that people will think that I like my name so much that I named my son with almost the same name (just short of being Junior).
The thing is, I don't really identify as Jonathan too much and I really like the name Nathan. Am I overthinking this? Is anybody in the same situation? (For example, being called Mary-Jane and naming a daughter Jane). I'd like to know if I can expect judgment, criticsm, being ridiculed, etc.
