Both dh and I cannot agree on boys names - at all,

One we both agree on and really like is Adam. However our dd is called Evalyn!

What do the mn jury think! Is it a bit too much and a bit wrong seeing as Evalyn is quite close to eve?

Aaarrrgggghhh baby naming is sooo hard!

Yep! Definitely too close imo! Especially as I guess there's a strong likelihood of youe DD's name being shortened to Eve at some point in her life!

Too close!

What about Alex, Aaron or Aidan?

Adam is too close imo.

No,you can't.

Thanks confused
We know an Aidan! Suggested Alex and Aaron and I don't think he is sure..... Back to the drawing board I think!

I think we both like traditional names - I think if I recall he likes James. I like Edward.

I like Edward, especially Ted as a nickname.

Also like Christopher/Kit.

Is she eh-vlyn or ee-vlyn?

If the later then yeah might be a bit weird but I would pronounce it the former so then it'd be fine!

She is more ev-lyn or evah-lyn! But thinking about it people do get her name wrong and call her eev-lynangry
