Where Do You Stand? Overlapping First Names

What's in a name? Well, a lot, if your love interest has the same name as your father or your brother! I just had a conversation with a friend who was excited about a really cute guy she met, but the downfall is that he shares the same name as her older brother. I've never dated anyone with my brother's name so I couldn't empathize with her, leaving me asking what the big deal is. I mean, I understand how it could be a little creepy to date someone with the same name as your father, but even still, I don't consider it to be a deal-breaker. So where do you stand on dating someone who shares their name with someone in your family? Have you done it before? Was it awkward? Was it confusing? Or was it not even an issue?
