Imagine how excited I was when my girlfriend told me she was going to name her daughter "Helena" -- the same name as me. My excitement didn't last too long, though. Before I could even respond to the news, my friend quickly blurted out, "Oh, I didn't name her after you."
Of course I never expected my friend would have named her daughter after me! But she seemed almost embarrassed by the connection. Would it have killed her to simply say something like, "Even though we didn't name her after you specifically, we're such good friends we're delighted to have our daughter share your name?"
