    Back to the drawing board for baby number three

    What do you think?
    Is Arlo too similar to Isla for a sibset?
    Will also join brother Henry.
    Previously were sold on Arthur but now looking for another option.

    Any advice will help. Thank you.

    Hmm, my first reaction was no, Arlo and Isla are fine. But then I tried to say them out loud and they do feel matchy and Henry feels like the odd one out. I think Henry, Isla, and Arthur make a much better trio--Arthur has similarities with Arlo, but has more distinguishing sounds. What put you off? I think Arthur fits great!

    Henry and Isla would also sound nice with Alistair, George, Martin, Lawrence, Felix, Colin, Marshall, or Malcolm.

    Arlo isn't too close to Isla, it just has similar characteristics. They both start with a vowel, have two-syllables and put the stress on the same syllable, but they still seem very different and unique from each other. Arthur is definitely better than Arlo, though. It's classier and sounds better with Henry. Here's a few suggestions for boys:

    Preston
    Miles
    Nathaniel
    Lachlan
    Oliver
    Dashiell
    Ronan

    Thanks for the responses.
    I am feeling like Arthur is a better match as well. There are some good nn options like Arto.
    We have also had Felix and George on our list. I think George will fall in the middle place if we get à boy.
    Thanks again. T
