I have a 4 syllable name for my daughter and a 1 syllable for my son. Their mn are almost opposite though, so that's something to consider. A lot of my current choices are 2 or 3 syllables. I suppose it will all balance in the end, perhapsCurrent loves: Theodore & Rosalind
Mommy to Arabella and Jude

I think that I WOULD be curious about a sibset of:
Alexander, Mark, Evan & Jack
But I would NOT be curious about a sibset of:
Luke, Max, Claire & Gabriella.
Alex is accepted as a standalone name, and Jack is a nickname name. Max does have longer versions, but Gabriella really only has one form that's considered "proper."
Luke, Max, Claire & Jack would use all short and nickname names. Alexander, Mark, Evan & Gabriella would use all "extended-versions" of names.
The difference between having Gabriella as the extended-version name of the sibset, and having Alexander as the extended-version name of the sibset, is that Alex is an accepted standalone nickname-name, while Gabriella really has no shorter versions.
Looking at it from another perspective, Jack is the nickname name in your set with Alexander, Mark & Evan. Without Jack, Alexander doesn't bother me. It's because there is a nickname name along with an extended-version name that COULD HAVE been a nickname name.
Hope this makes sense & helps!
