    Are these to close for sisters?

    Originally, when picking out Evie's name we had firmly decided on Piper Adelaide.

    Now, with a third child's name ending in N, (Sebastian, Kaidan, and Evelyn), we're wanting to stick to that with the twins.

    Jackson's name is picked out, and (fingers crossed) won't change. However, we've been struggling with a girls name. (SURPRISE!)

    You all were so wonderful helping us with Evie's name, now we need help with baby B's name!

    Okay... So here's the question... Going off Adelaide my hubby suggested Adelyn, which I really like. My only concern is having an Evie and an Addie.

    Are these names to close for sisters?

    I think that Adelyn and Evelyn are close, but we almost always refer to Evelyn as Evie, and her brothers call her Pip. Adelyn would probably always be referred to as Addie, except at school.

    Adelaide is a family name for us, so this was our way of still trying to use it.

    I don't think you need to have -n ending names. Since you're expecting twins, it would be a way to break the pattern since it wouldn't be all the kids in the family except one sharing the same final letter. Adelaide is a great name, and I think all those -n endings might get redundant. However, if you're set on one twin having an -n ending name, I guess the other should too so they're not left out.

    I do think Adelyn/Addie is a bit close to Evelyn/Evie. It's not horrible, but there are better choices. Can I suggest Adeline or Adelaine? They still end in an -n sound, but they're more different from Evelyn. You can still use nn Addie, but with Adelaine you also have the option of Lainey.

    I totally agree with this... How would you feel about using Jack instead of Jackson? It would free you up to choose whatever name you like for your little girl. I really like Jack & Adelaide for twins. Also think Evie and Addie would be great for sisters, but Evelyn and Adelyn are quite close, as some posters have already said. BUT I don't think they sound ridiculous together or anything, so if you and your husband love Jackson and Adelyn, I say go for it

    Though we'll likely end up calling him Jack we won't name him just Jack for many different reasons, mainly being that it is to short for both of us. And our older children all have nicknames, which is why we want Jackson to have the option.

    Thanks for your comment!

    Also, to answer another poster we don't like Jackson and Addison together, so that's why we won't go that direction.

    I think when using nn Evie and Addie, the names are not too close and I actually like them together. I would go with Adelaide as the full name though, it sounds lovely next to Evelyn.
