What should we do?

By complete coincidence my 3 children all have names that end in lie (pronounced Lee) it wasn't planned this way and not something we really thought about.
Now we are pregnant with baby number 4! Should we chose a name with lie at the end because of he other 3 or not? Would it be odd to have 3 children with one type of name and 1 who doesn't 'match'???? What would you do????

I would call him/her Lee/Leigh grin

I don't think it will matter either way. I think I'd err towards not having a matching name, but if there is a 'lie' name you love, I don't think you have to avoid it. Are there many Lie names left?
Ellie
Kellie
Nellie
Stanley
Hollie
Polly
Ollie
Audley
Rosalie
Emily
Amelie

Can't think of any more!

Depends...if it's along the lines of Ollie, Molly, Polly and Bert, that doesn't sound right. But if you had Ollie, Molly, Polly and Dolly, it'd border on too nursery rhyme-like.

Instead, maybe you could go with just the 'ee' sound so it's similar but not too matchy rhymy. E.g.
Henry
Penelope
Harry
Hattie
Zachary
Marie

Clock I like that!! Now I just need to find some names we can agree on!
Plim only one of the names you've listed is one of my kids!
Monkey, that's not a bad suggestion!!
