    Frustrated!

    We have three children... Aidan, Elsie and Charlotte (Charlie). Our fourth is a girl! We both realized we loved the name Scarlett Monroe.... Until we realized it rhymed with Charlotte. Our second name we chose is a family name, Thea Evelyn.. But I can't let go of our first name, Scarlett! What do you think we should do?

    It's unfortunate that your favorite name rhymes with your daughter's! But I do think Charlotte and Scarlett are just too similar to both be first names in one family. I would use Scarlett as the middle, so it still gets included. I think it sounds wonderful with Thea. Is Thea Scarlett an option?

    I really do think Scarlett and Charlotte are too similar for sisters. But I get how it feels to love a favourite name, even though I'm light-years away from kids! Use Scarlett in the middle, or if you can't let go of it as a first use a nickname like Cara or Lettie for when they're both around. (If when they're older say Charlotte's out of the house it wouldn't be confusing to call out Scarlett).

    Thea Scarlett or Evelyn Scarlett would be good way to still use Scarlett.

    Scarlett and Charlotte would not be a good combo for sisters; much too similar.
    What do you love about Scarlett? Try to find a way to incorporate that into another name.
    I do like Evelyn Scarlett as a possible combo tho.
    Best of luck
