    Baby coming soon... Need to finalize name!

    Baby girl is due in a week!

    We have narrowed our names down to 2, but are still struggling with middle names. I'm not in love with either of these names, but my husband strongly prefers Brynn.

    My biggest issue with Brynn, is how similar it is to our son's name - Brooks Oliver. How bad is it to name them something so similar? My husband thinks I'm completely overthinking it.

    I will be glad for any suggestions you can offer for middle names (or even first names).

    I think Brooks and Jillian are ADORABLE together. You're right Brooks and Brynn are too matchy-matchy. I love Jillian Elise/Kate! They're both adorable! NOT a fan of Brynn though.

    I adore Brynn!!! Jillian is ok. But Brynn & Brooks are a bit similar. How about Brynna? Brooks & Brynna aren't as bad. Besides, if you don't care either way, and your husband adores Brynn, I would go with Brynn. Jillian feels dated.

    Jillian Kate is my choice of the Jillian combos and Brynn Alexandra is my choice for the Brynn combos.

    Brynn is pretty matchy with Brooks. A shared B initial would be fine but I think both beginning with Br is a bit much. Also, Brynn on girls really irks me. Bryn is a boys' name and adding an n doesn't make it a girls' name IMHO.
    Jillian Elise is lovely.
