By now, Rose Lavelle is a household name. She blossomed into stardom during the U.S. Women's National Team's run to gold at the 2019 World Cup and scored in the final against the Netherlands.
She's just not the only one out there named Rose Lavelle, apparently.
While signing autographs and meeting with fans following the NWSL Washington Spirit's game Saturday against the Houston Dash (Lavelle didn't play), a young fan introduced herself to Lavelle — as Rose Lavelle.
"What is your name?" the incredulous, older Rose Lavelle asked in a video posted on NBC Sports Washington reporter Brian McNally's Twitter account.
When the youngster responds with "Rose Lavelle" (the exact spelling of her name isn't confirmed) the two shared a high-five and Rose Lavelle, the elder, signed a No. 10 Lavelle jersey.

"That's so cute," the more famous Rose Lavelle said. "I'll see you later Rose."
