Hi there. Our 2nd son is due in a few weeks. We are liking Jaylen - I don't want to ask family (I made that mistake last time) so I found this site!

Thank you in advance. Our 1st son is Clayden. Are they too similar?

Thanks xxx

Yes they are too similar.

PacificDogwod Tue 29-Mar-16 22:24:33

Yes. Too similar.

My father and brother are called similar sounding names (think Ronald and Donald). It's a practical nightmare grin

Alisvolatpropiis Tue 29-Mar-16 22:25:26

Much too similar

BennyTheBall Tue 29-Mar-16 22:25:58

Yes too similar.

Also too much like Jayden which is on the MN banned list.

I think people will think you've misspelt Jayden so a lifetime of correction ahead!

nomorechocolate2016 Tue 29-Mar-16 22:28:58

Not keen sorry. I have never heard of either name and would find Jaylen difficult to remember.

Milzilla Tue 29-Mar-16 22:35:51

Far too similar. Tongue-tying in fact.

I'm not keen sorry - sounds made-up.

Fairylea Tue 29-Mar-16 22:37:28

Way too similar ! Sorry, it's really not my kind of name at all.

I think a lot of people would naturally want to rhyme them - Claydon and Jaydon. I don't think they sit together well, sorry!

Sophronia Tue 29-Mar-16 22:50:12

Too similar I think.

BushyTailedPony Tue 29-Mar-16 22:51:42

Yup. Agree with above. It's too similar to your other sons name. I wondered about just calling him Jay. But then you'd have Jay and Clay so that's not much better.

Really don't like the name, on its own or with your other DC's name. A bit yoonique.

I've never heard of either name, I bet you can never find personalised mugs!

Clarence is right. People are going to want to say Jayden because it rhymes and sort of flows better.

Clayden and Jaylen are like a tongue twister together.

Jason? '^Clayden and Jason will you get your shoes on RIGHT NOW!'^

Jaylen isn't even a name, and yes, it's like a variant of clayden
Pick something that doesn't end in 'en'

RidersOnTheStorm Wed 30-Mar-16 06:58:39

Just no. Awful.

AutumnRose1988 Wed 30-Mar-16 07:10:19

Clayden and Jaylen confused

Not good :-'(

They're too similar. Also, I'm not keen on it! The NN, Jay, is okay, though! I think we just have different taste, regarding names. If you love it, use it smile

NoAdventureNoTime Wed 30-Mar-16 13:52:24

I know a Jaylen, lovely little boy, so not made up name in my bookconfused
