We have 2 kiddos right now and another on the way, and we don't announce names until the baby is born, but I am bracing myself. Any advice on how to handle the uproar? Some people have already started to ask if we will name the baby with the same first letter! I don't let on to anything, we are super secret about the names, always.
I have had a few people IRL tell me that my kids are gonna hate me blah blah blah. I get the, 'taking after the Duggers' sometimes too. Really, I just try to change the subject. It's none of their business! For the most part people think its cool. I have never had to tell someone in really life to mind their own business but I would if it came to that.

My oldest is 13 and he never says anything about their names. I dot think it's a big deal.

We didn't start off making everyone's names the same. it just happened but then we kept it going because I felt like the kid without a matching name would feel unloved!
