    Future names conflict with current childrens' names

    We just had baby #3 so we don't plan on #4 for a few years but I was thinking about future siblings and was wondering if all names we chose for our kids put restrictions on future names. I love names that are anywhere from a little unique(or really unique to non-berries) to way common. I always gravitate towards the more unique names but most of the time I go for the "safe" choice. (I sadly regret both my sons names) I feel that the names we currently love are too unique or don't flow with our current kids names. Does this happen to you? Do I need to nix names I love just because they don't flow?
    Our kids are: Lily, Chase, Zack

    I never understand why siblings names need to match. When I asked on this very site, I only get it's doesn't. Well, your kids names don't need to match, go ahead and pick name you like. Don't let other kids names restrict you.

    People on these forums talk about sibsets a lot as though it's something that really matters, but other than the aesthetic appeal when introducing all your kids, there's no actual positive or negative consequence to having a sibset that flows really well, or one that is drastically different and jarring! All your kids will grow up to be individual adults, will have their own feelings about their names, and they probably will not think about whether their names fit with their siblings or not (unless your kids are named something like Grace, Hope, Charity, and then the last is named something evil-sounding like Bellatrix!!!!). I think you should embrace what you love, and because you love it, your kids will too!

    Among the names you listed, for girls I like: Chloe, Eden, Olive, Penelope, and Stella. For boys, I like: Finn (though would worry that it is getting to be over-used), Jude, Milo, and Soren.

    Kids have much bigger issues to complain about than non-matching names. Like, homework.

    Some of your favorites could totally flow with your children's names!
    Chloe, Kendall, Stella, Austin, Brody, Milo, and Jude all work! Your current children all have fairly short, recognizable, and easily pronounced names so in the future, I would avoid throwing in names like the Aislyn, Penelope, Emerson, and Soren.
