    Too many "um"s?

    So my top name for a girl is currently Tatum. I think it's adorable. My top boy name is currently Callum. I love this name to pieces and think Cal is a great nn.

    Obviously both names end in "um". If I was to be lucky enough to have a boy and girl, would it be totally out of the question to use these names together as a sib set?

    I don't mind matching endings nearly as much as matchy beginnings. As long as your last name doesn't end in -um, I think it's fine.

    It is matchy, but so are plenty of other sibsets out there. It really depends on if it bothers you personally. I think Tatum and Callum are too similar for my taste, but I wouldn't think much about it if I met two children with those names.

    Well said.

    I wouldn't pay much mind if I heard the names. It's seeing them written that draws my attention to their endings.
