There's nothing worse than getting two people's names mixed up, right?
The pair met back in 2018 and had to overcome the slight hiccup that in her youth, girl Taylor had been a steadfast 'Team Edward' supporter.
Nonetheless, they were together for three years before they got engaged in November 2021 and tied the knot a year later.
The two Taylors have come up with a system to help family and friends out when it comes to differentiating them, as the actor opts to go by his full name, while his wife takes on the nickname 'Tay'.
Pretty good idea, right?
Well, the couple have refined it even further.
Speaking on the Today show to promote their new podcast, The Squeeze, the pair delved into their new naming system.
"We've kind of got 'boy Tay', 'girl Tay' going on and that was how they'd differentiate it but now I'm always girl Tay and he's always boy Tay even when we're not together," 'girl Tay' explained.
If it works them and their family, then good for them.
But at least Lautner... that is, boy Tay, isn't sweating over the re-release of Taylor Swift's Speak Now album.
Yes, I know, there's now a third Taylor in this article - please bear with me.
Lautner's current wife isn't the first woman he dated who shared his first name, as he previously had a relationship with the 'Anti-Hero' singer all the way back in 2009.
The two stars dated in their younger years before breaking up, which reportedly inspired the song 'Back To December', which appeared on Swifts' 2010 album Speak Now.
However, with the song being apologetic in tone on Swift's part, it's no wonder that Lautner isn't feeling too anxious about his ex's latest round of break up songs.
The 30-year-old actor even joked that he was 'praying for John', referring to John Mayer, another of Swift's famous exes.
Swift's break up with Mayer seemingly wasn't as amicable, as the song 'Dear John' - also featured on Speak Now - clearly demonstrates.
Lyrics like 'Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone, don't you think I was too young to be messed with?' and 'I'm shining like fireworks over your sad, empty town' aren't exactly the most flattering.
Just think about the songs she deemed too harsh to go onto the original album.
