This is weird, isn't it?

Think I've made a bit of a cock up with my childrens names...

My DH has two DDs - they are much older than our kids and we all get on great.

Say they are called Scarlett and Benny

Now we have 2 kids and, completely without thought we've given them REALLY similar names...

Say ours are called Charlotte and Jenny..

When you say my DSDs names really quickly, followed by my DC names really quickly, they sound almost identical........

That's really weird, isn't it?

There was no thought given to this at all, but I'm almost at the point of changing DD's name (she the newest addition) because of this.

What do you think?

yeah, think you need to do something about that.

appears to be some subconscious ishoos there....

That's the problem - there really aren't any ishoos.... (well not from our side) but I can see how it might look!!!

Not really sure it is a big problem - prehaps say their names in a different order grin.

My friend has a DD called Keira and her DH has another child called Kieron - does not bother them at all.

Lots of names end up abbreviated to similar sounds anyway - ie/y endings.
