    I see what you mean I guess. Obviously I'm drawn to similar sounds in names.

I've just said them out loud a few times though and don't get tongue twisted so I think it could work. (This is particularly funny because I'm at the hairdresser and the whole salon just looked at me.)

    I love your daughter's name and she's beautiful. And I know this is for girls, but Asher and Rowan as siblings gives me a name high!
    Thank you! Do you mean Asher for a girl? I have considered it but I'm worried about the popularity of the name in general, it might become the next Aidan.

    I am not a big fan of sawyer, it feels more male to me than unisex. I love marit and merit with Rowan! I also like the suggested Waverly. Wren and Rowan are definitely too close. It may be a poor analogy, but it would be like naming your sons Dwayne and Dane.......the sounds are simply too repetitive.

    At the risk of universal NB hatred, I'm not opposed to Asher on a girl. Do still prefer it on a boy, however, as I feel it's still too far in the boys' camp.
