    Silas and Linus??

    I had my third baby yesterday and my husband and I are having issues agreeing on a name. We both like Linus a lot - but my older son is Silas. Are they too similar-sounding to be sibling names??

    To make it more complicated, but daughter is Adeline. So Linus is basically a totally unintentional “combination” of my two older kids’ names.

    Is it too rhymey with Silas? Is it weird it combines elements of Adeline and Silas?

    Linus is sweet and unexpected! But, with siblings Silas and Adeline, I'm a little hesitant on it...they do seem a little rhymey to me, unfortunately.

    From your signature, I think that Asher, Felix, Lionel, and Sebastian would all work!

    I wouldn't use Linus with Silas and Adeline. It is a cool name though.

    Unfortunately, I think Linus is too similar to Silas and Adeline.

    I love Linus (and Silas and Adeline) but it's too rhymey/similar for me. Lysander could be an alternative?

    I agree with posters above, the similar sound with the other names is a dealbreaker.
    How about Titus? It shares the long i and the ending, without being too similar
    You seem to like names with long vowel sounds, so I would also suggest:
    Otis
    Milo
    Jasper
    Felix
    Levi
    Gage
    Asa
    Milo Peter 2015

    Otis Henry is here! 💞

    I love it! What a beautiful subset you have. Congratulations
    If parents decide to choose a name from a certain culture, they must respect that culture and the gender for which the name was historically given

    Yeah, I’m afraid they are too similar. Linus is very sweet though!
