We were close to deciding on a name, maybe even set for awhile but now DH says one of my favorite names he had originally vetoed has grown on him- Beckett.

Our girls are Gabriella and Cambria.. but we call them Ella and Bria a lot of the time. I'm very OCD about names/sibsets and would never really want to have two of my children having a name with one letter and one left out but should this apply to nicknames, too? Am I being too anal? I'd prefer all my childrens names starting with the same letter or none of them the same if I had a choice. But I don't want to use a name I love less just because of a dumb issue only I have.. and then end up regretting it.

One of my fears is that Cambria will decide when she's older she doesn't like Cambria and go strictly by Bri or Bria. Right now she calls herself Bria but we call her Cambria about 50% of the time. I don't know if it will bother me to be calling two children by B names?

I didn't even really think of this earlier when one of our top names was Everett... Everett would've matched with Ella. Maybe I didn't consider this because Bria was in the middle to break up the matching initials when I said our kids names together?

Would you use this name in my situation? What are your thoughts?

Gabriella, Cambria, and Beckett?
Ella, Bria, and Beckett?

I think Beckett goes well with your sib-set and if you both like it you should definitely use it. I don't think you should let the Bri/Bria/Beckett thing ruin it for you (unless you just cannot stand the connection at all).

Just for extra suggestions what about:

I like Beckett and think it goes perfectly! It would not bother me that it starts w/ a B just as your other dd's nickname starts with a B.

I think Beckett goes nicely with your sibset. I don't think the B thing would be an issue especially considering Bria is a nickname for Cambria and everyone who knows you knows that. Is Everett still in the running? A nickname for that could possible be Rett? or Rhett?

I like Beckett with your sibset and wouldn't give the same letter coincidence a second thought. Maybe if her name was Bria and not short for anything, but then it still wouldn't be that big of a deal for me.

I also like a PP's suggestion of Rhett as a nn for Everett.

I really like it! I wouldn't worry about it since people know your DD's name is Cambria and she actually goes by it, its not her 'formal' name that is never used.

ITA with the other girls. I don't think it would seem as though you're starting a B theme since Cambria's full name doesn't start with a B. I also love the NN "Rhett" for Beckett. Very cute!
Expecting #3 in January 2016!
