    Sibling name for Olivia and Henry

    Please help! Our childrens names are:

    Olivia Austin
    Henry Palmer

    We really, really like Charles (call him Charlie), but we are worried that Charlie and Henry sound too similar or matchy with the y/ie ending. We also like Sarah (call her Sadie), but again, we feel that sounds too matcy. We seem unable to get away from that ending. What do you all think? We are open to ANY suggestions. Our last name is only one sylluble and starts with a Y.

    Many thanks in advance!

    I forgot to suggest the option of sticking with Charles, but using another of its nicknames, such as Chip or Chas/Chaz.

    Good luck! :-)

    I dont think Henry and Charlie are too matchy at all... They flow well together!
    Charles is one of my all-time favorite boy names, however.. my husband doesnt like it :S and our sons middle name is Henry!
    Congrats!
