Question Is it weird if my crush has a name similar to my mother's name?
Here's the gist of my current situation within high school.

I like a girl, like any other person would within high school, and I have decided that I am going to ask her to go to homecoming with me.

I told my sister of this, and she laughed when she heard both the hair color and the name of my "crush".

My sister laughed at the fact that the girl I like has the name of "Veronica", while my mother's name is "Ronni" (Yes, just Ronni, not Veronica). My sister also laughed at the fact that they are both blondes.

It bothers me when Veronica's friends call her Ronni because of the facts at hand.

To cut a long story short, my sister basically stated that this "crush" was sort of weird.

I have already told all of my friends that I am going to ask her out to homecoming, one of whom will punch me as hard as he can in the arm if I do not follow through, another of which will tell a deranged drug dealer that I called him a "faggot", probably resulting in my subsequent death.

So, is it weird to have a crush on a girl with a similar name to your mother's (never mind hair color because blonde is a common hair color at my school)?

My heart-brain complex tells me that I should follow through with my plan to ask her, but the centers of my brain dealing in humiliation tell me otherwise.

Please help, I really need advice.

My best friend was named after her mom. She married a guy with the same first name as her father.....

Her brother was named after her dad and I think he married someone with a very close name.

Don't think it matters much. Smile


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

My twin sister's boyfriend has the same birthday as us. Which is kind of weird...

I can't see how that's anything more than a coincidence.

... this is my signature!

That's reassuring to know!

Not weird, just coincidence. Sister just being cruel Tongue As is sibling prerogative.

It is if her name is Mildred or Blanche. Consider

I used to work for a man whose mother, sister, and wife had the same name - and it's not a common name - so a little odd because of that reason.

I doubt he dated his wife because of her name.

Don't let it worry you.

Would you like her any better if she had another name?

"Call me anything you want, just don't call me late for dinner." - Groucho Marx

"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet." - Bill Shakespear

Don't like her name? That's why monikers like "Honey" and "Sweetums" were created.

And all that stuff.

Seriously, slap yourself for me and get back to business.

It's only as weird as you let it be.

I'd do what I would do in a similar situation and cut off a lot of letters to the first part of the name, Susan becomes Su, Veronica becomes Vera, I think you get the idea.

I'm more concerned about the drug dealer thing tbh.

“You see… sometimes life gives you lemons. And when that happens… you need to find some spell that makes lemons explode, because lemons are terrible. I only ate them once and I can say with certainty they are the worst fruit. If life gave me lemons, I would view it as nothing short of a declaration of war."
