We named our first born the same name as our neighbor's dog at the time. My wife had no idea and I didn't have the heart to tell her.

my neighbor girls transitioned. one of them decided to be called sam. the name of our dog (they've known this dog for 7 years). is this the exact opposite thing?

//their brother is a 21y/o convicted drug-dealing, home-invading felon, who still lives at home (of course). can't wait for him to GTFO.

Its actually a known phenomenon =  you hear a name locally, and you are unaware of how stuck it is in your head.  (just like some songs you hear over & over and can hum in their entirety 10 years later.)  Then later on you think you've chosen that name at random, when it was actually just hanging around in your subconscious as a familiar thing.

/ woman who lived next door laughed about it years later - she'd named her kids after two near neighbors... accidentally.    The names just 'sounded good' to her as she came out of the anesthesia, and both times when she got home from the hospital (birth cert already written, obvs) she realized what she'd done.   So we had two Toms and two Vickis on our cul-de-sac.

Wasn't there once a Fark story of OJ Simpson's next door neighbor naming his dog "Killer"?

"Here Killer!"

"Good boy, Killer!"

etc.

When I was young, one of our neighbors had a German Shepard named Barbara.

We were going to name our youngest Zachary and it turned out the neighbors that moved in next door had a dog named Zach. Back to the baby naming list.
