Have a last minute name dilemma, and need some advice if anyone can help! DS1 is now 3 and he was named quite easily, a name both myself and DH liked and it really suits him. His name is quite Scottish, and I want the same for our next but have found it so much harder! Myself and DH initials are K, and but our top boy and girl names both start with a C. It suddenly hit me that this would mean DS1 name is the only one not starting with a hard "k" sound. Both names go well with my DS1 name, but I am worried it will seem odd he is the only one whose name doesn't "sound" the same. DH thinks I am worrying about nothing but I'm not so sure! Any mners able to help me out? DC2 is due any day now and we need to make a decision! Thanks!

Well, totally unintentionally but DP and both DC have names starting with a hard K or C sound. Mine is the only one that doesn't. Am quite glad our names don't all start with the same sound! I loved DCs names too much not to use them, even although they have the same sound.

Thanks for the reply, I love the girls name we have chosen - Catriona, the boy I could be flexible on but it is one of the few myself and DH agree on! I keep fixating on Christmas Cards coming in to K, K, S and C. Maybe baby will just pop out and the name will just hit us, but I am not really convinced! I like to be organised! smile

I don't think so- my family have names beginning with a J apart from myself, but I never noticed it tbh.

Catriona is a beautiful name btw.

It is fine, unless your surname is Kardashian.

Thanks all. Def not Kardashian so is provably just last minute wobbles! Lol.

I think it'll be nicer for the DCs to have their own initial. No problems with the same initial on post, for example.
