Same name or choose another, dilemma

So, one of our antenatal group have called their newborn Elliott. Of our short list, this is the one name DH and I agree on, although I worry it's a little popular and it's not the favourite for either of us. Our compromise name I suppose. Could we still use it; she's a new friend but I think I'd be a little annoyed if I were her?

Our other name choices are Austin, Marlow or Elian. One of these DH loves and one I love, but we can't seem to agree.

I'm 39 weeks already and it's worrying me that we can't decide. Whereas we have a girls name that we both love.

How long ago was her Elliott born? I would have been tempted to say at the time "Ooh Elliott, lovely name, you have great taste as thats at the top of our shortlist".

You may well grow apart from your group - if you want Elliot, go for it.
