    Henry's sister is hamstrung by her middle name.....

    My son Henry is getting a little sister this summer! Her middle name will be Cynthia (a family name), and our last name starts with S....the combination of which is kind of limiting.

    For my taste, I feel I need to eliminate all H, C, and S names. I am not a fan of same-sounding sibling names, I don't want my daughter to be nicknamed CeCe/CC, and tho I absolutely love alliteration within a name, 3 S sounds is too much for one little girl. Also, because Cynthia is more of a throwback name - and a mouthful - I feel the first name should be something shorter, fresher/newer, and with a non-"ia" ending. Unfortunately, this eliminates a lot of my favorites (Sienna, Sidney, Chloe, Avia, etc)

    My short list, in order of preference, is:

    I Love love love Zoe but am concerned it is too matchy with Henry. Also, is Marley automatically associated with Bob Marley?

    All thoughts or new ideas really appreciated!!!!!!

    Maya and Gemma are my favourites off your list.
    Maya Cynthia sounds better than Gemma Cynthia, though they, sadly, both sound kind of funny with the middle name. I love Gemma with Henry though. I understand why you're torn

    thanks, shvibziks.....i know, it's a tough one.

    Do you think Zoe is too matchy with Henry?

    I am open to other names too, these are just the ones I have come up with based on what's been ruled out due to being in use by family members already.....

    I don't think Zoe is too matchy with Henry. I actually find Marley to sound matchier, although the styles are very different. Zoe Cynthia is lovely!

    Zoe is not too matchy with Henry, especially since the two names are different styles and origins: Zoe is of Greek origin and Henry is of German origin. Henry and Zoe make a nice sibset!
