Not using the same first letter again?
 
I have two kids, Nathaniel and Norah. Norah's name was originally going to be Lucia but we changed out mind about halfway through the pregnancy to name her Norah after her grandfather Norman. We didn't even realize that her and her brother had the same letter at the beginning of their names until that Christmas when we were getting letters to hang with their stockings lol

Well, I'm pregnant with our third and I'm unsure what to do. We like the name Nicholas Clay for a boy (which would keep the accidental naming scheme) but I don't like many N girl names. If we didn't name the third kid an N name, do you think they would feel left out? There's also the fact that Nathaniel and Norah were both born on the 24th day of their months (May and October) and this baby has a good chance of not being born on the 24th.

What do you think?

hm that's a tough one. I don't repeat letters for that reason. for me though I find it less weird if you have two the same gender with the same initial and then have the opposite gender with a different initial. but you've got one of each with the same so I don't know!

is this for absolute certain your last baby?

some girl N names:

Nadia
Naomi
Nina
Noelle
Nola

or you could use Penelope and call her Nellie.

No you don't have to repeat the N theme, if you like an N name go for it... But if not use something that you love. They won't feel left out! Maybe use one of your family members initials if you are worried? Then they will share with someone if they ever think to ask.

Well, either way they will be named after my mom and stepmom Niki/Nikki. If it's a boy his name will be Nicholas to honor them, if it's a girl, they would have the middle name Nikki. I COULD use the name Nikki as a first name and call them by their middle name, but I really would rather not.

:ditto: I'm of the same thought process.

There is always going to be something different about one of them - this one is the first child, this is the baby, this is the girl, etc. Find a name you like and that will suit them and it'll work itself out.

My brother and I both have names that start with A. None of my other siblings have matching letters. I don't think it matters at all, but that's just my opinion.

I have a friend who has 3 boys. The first and second start with a C so everyone thought they would go for another C name. Nope the third starts with a L. It doesn't matter, just pick a name that you both love!

My DH and his sister both have names that start with C, but their brother's name starts with W. No one has ever noticed or said anything.

In my family, all 3 of my brothers have names that start with T, but mine and my sister's names start with C and R. Again, no one notices.

I really don't think it matters.

It doesn't matter at all. It's just a coincidence. But you already started it. Why not continue naming your third baby with letter N again? That's totally cool! :smile:

Nicholas Clay sounds perfect though :) Goodluck
