    Too matchy?

    I am pregnant with Baby #2 and although DH and I have decided on a boy name, we are still undecided on a name for a girl. Our daughter's name is McKinley and so far the only girl name with have agreed on is McKenna. Do you think it is too similar? We honestly aren't trying to be matchy or even stick with the same letter, but it just happens to be the only name we agree on. Any other suggestions to go with McKinley? Her middle name would be Ryan so I would want a more feminine first name to go with a gender neutral middle name, and I would like it to go well with McKinley.

    Yes they are definitely way to close to be sisters! I think that it's okay to have two M names, but the Mc beginning of the names make them too similar.

    Other suggestions:
    Kenna
    Kennedy
    Reagan
    Madison
    Madeline
    Harper
    Layla
    Maisie
    Morgan
    Sophia

    Way too similar, in my opinion. I'd throw out any Mac-names, and maybe -ley names too. If you want to stick with gender-bending/surname type names, maybe:
    Harper Ryan
    Teagan Ryan
    Kennedy Ryan
    Aubrey Ryan
    Delaney Ryan
    Bellamy Ryan
    Addison/Adelaide Ryan
    Keira Ryan
    Cameron Ryan
    Campbell Ryan
    Skylar Ryan
    Piper Ryan
    Sydney Ryan
    Avery Ryan



    Feminine names:
    Amelia Ryan
    Maisie Ryan
    Scarlett Ryan
    Stella Ryan
    Madeline Ryan
    Evelyn Ryan
    Caroline Ryan
    Alexandra Ryan
    Samantha Ryan
    Maura
    mama to
    Flannery Katherine

    McKinley and McKenna are very matchy. I wouldn't recommend it.
    Here are some names I would pair with sister McKinley:
    Peyton
    Adeline
    Bryn
    Harper
    Sailor
    Piper
    Aurora
    Brielle
    Eden
    Georgia
    Stella

    My favourites with McKinley are Harper Ryan, Georgia Ryan or Stella Ryan.
    I hope you find something you love!
