Too similar?
 
My kids names are

Collin James 5 yo
Rowan Miranda 2yo

Would kailyn be too similar for a girl?

Would brecken for a boy be be too matchy sound wise?

Any other suggestions?

I think Brecken is safe :) But Kailyn and Collin are pretty close. I have the same problem, I love names that sound close to my other kids' names. It's tough! However, given there are 5+ years between them, it may be OK, especially since one's a girl and one's a boy. If you REALLY love Kailyn, go for it ;)

I think Brecken is fine. Not too similar or matchy. However, I find Kailyn and Collin to be a tongue twister. I would prolly try to find a less similar name for that one.

:ditto: The other ladies. I don't think Brecken is too similar but Collin and Kailyn may cause you some trouble. Although my coworker named his kids Kylie and Kyle and says it is no problem :shrugs: So I think if you love the name it doesn't really matter but they are pretty similar sounding.

I think Kaitlyn & Collin sound good together. I don't find it hard to say at all. And remember, most of their lives they won't be a sibset.

I don't think any of them are too matchy :)
