Re: Is this name too close?

Abigail and Adalyn are fine for sisters. But really, Abbie and Addie, IMO is a little ridiculous. I'm sorry, but it's nearly identical, just flip the Bs over and you have Ds. I couldn't do it. If you called her Adalyn or Ada or Lynnie, etc i think it would be fine. Just not Addie.

We don't vaccinate, we kept our sons intact, we use cloth diapers, we co-sleep, we extended RF, we breastfeed, but we watch too much tv and I totally dig plastic! Everyone has their issues, lol.

I think they sound fine together and once you have more then one child the names start getting mixed up any ways. My kids are Gibson Anna and Joseph and they all get called by there siblings names at least once a week if not more often and none of my kids names sound similar.
Thank for your condolences .

She didn't even know who I was the day I said goodbye to her, but I knew that SHE did know and that when she passed she would continue to watch over my family and be proud of the kids I am raising.

(tears flowing, sorry if its incoherent)
Thank you for sharing this. I think we should tell her but dh does not. I'm not going to push him as this is exceedingly hard on him since he was raised by his grandparents. I think it would bring her joy knowing but dh thinks it would only make her sad because she will not get to " know" this child. The whole situation breaks my heart for dh . He is torn between being elated about this baby and coping with his grandmothers illness and impending death.

Re: Is this name too close?

I think Adalyn is a really pretty name and yeah it could get confusing but I have 2 kids already who's names start with a BR and end with a N and so will the thirds lol.

I have trouble with Brook and Beck. It's fine, just be prepared to screw it up a lot.

The only hold back we have is that we would want to call her Addie. So are Addie and Abbie too close for siblings?
I dont think so! My youngest is Adalane, and we call her

Re: Is this name too close?

I think it is just adorable and I love it! My top two girl names were Mallory and Adelynn though so I love the name. My big issue would be if you were planning more kids. My kids all end in N, the first two were by chance but with the third we did it on purpose. Now with the 4th one it was a tough call to stay with it or break the 'ends in n' thing. We are sticking with it and if we ever have a girl she can break the rule. But that may just be me feeling like 'well the first two start with A so we have to stick with 'A' names'.

As for Ada, we have 2 Ada's and 2 Ava's in our church. It seems to be getting pretty popular as 3 of those are under 2 years old.
