I don't see why not, other than possible confusion in the future. What is your reason for using #12?

hi,
I was doing an addition. i got power for the new receptacles from the old porch light. the wiring was #14.

i rarely use 14/2.

i didnt think there was any violation there...just sounds funny.

thanks for the replies.
