Tons of people have awesome nicknames, and it sounds like you'll want one. It's seriously the relationship I've wanted for so long. " is sufficient, or whether I need to say "Hi [Name]! However, I think the relationship could work if other things clicked and no one would forget your SO's name, which would be nice. The photographer who used to collaborate with us is Javier.I'm not generally opposed, since it's so common, but it might be a little weird. I happen to know a straight couple named Adrian and Adrienne and having the same name doesn't seem to effect their relationship. The new photographer (husband of the administration guy) is Javier. There's a Javier in the bar where we eat, sometimes.I agree - not the greatest hurdle and the perfect opportunity to find an awesome nickname for each other. I am dating someone with the same name, though we go by different variations of it.

He mentioned that because he had a poor relationship with his family, when he found a husband he'd want to take the husband's last name. It wouldn't even occur to me to consider not dating someone because of their having my name.
The key is to find someone who has a sense of humor about it. I once had a date with a guy who had the same first name as me. If I could meet and fall in love with a good man and the biggest problem we had was that other people would get confused about our names, I'd dance for joy. I think I would work to establish fun and agreeable nicknames, but still use our real names when the intent isn't ambiguous.
