Thinking about going for [name_u]Baby[/name_u] #4 and I’ve recently just fallen for the name [name_f]Maren[/name_f]. I’ve actually liked it for a long time but didn’t really know if it was a “real name” or just something I came up with. The fact that it’s a legit name makes it much more usable for me now! I don’t know how I’d describe my usual style, but it wouldn’t be [name_f]Maren[/name_f]- I change from [name_u]Baby[/name_u] to [name_u]Baby[/name_u]!
The problem: My son is [name_u]Mason[/name_u]. He is the oldest, followed by [name_f]Brenna[/name_f] and [name_f]Loretta[/name_f] ([name_f]Lorie[/name_f] more often). So as far as [name_u]Christmas[/name_u] cards and writing out their names, it’s not like they’d be side by side. And he is my stepson- he doesn’t live with us full time. So the whole yelling one kid’s name when you meant to yell another wouldn’t be much of an issue. (Not that I don’t do that with all the kids anyway- haha!). In sound I don’t think they sound that close (I wouldn’t have used [name_f]Lacey[/name_f] or a name that almost rhymes with [name_u]Mason[/name_u]). But I’m curious- do you think they are too matchy? Could you use a name that shares so many letters with a sibling?
