ok, so here it is. I have 3 wonderful little ones, isaiah, elijah and Grace, all in that order. We are considering having #4 sometime in the next 2 or so years, and we've been playing around with baby name ideas, just for fun. Anyway, when I was prego with #2, I found the name Josiah, totally fell in love, told my hubby, and he vetoed it right off the bat. "No way, hate that name". He said waaaayy more, and way worse, but I won't go into it all. Anyway, At the end of the day, when it was all said and done, our compromise name was Elijah. I don't hate it at all, but I think I would've preferred to be able to use Josiah instead, which was my first choice. Now, onto my newest reason for the regret. Playing around with possible #4 baby names for girls, I've discovered that I'm now liking alot of girl names that I probably can't use because of my use of Elijah for a boy. Such as: Olivia, Alyssa, Alexis, Elizabeth, Alicia, etc. You get the picture. Anyway, do you think I'm just being extra picky, or weird? Whats ur opinion. I just feel like I wouldn't want him to have a sister with a name so close to his, beings that kids can already be so mean about some of the stupidest things anyway. And, not to mention, they can already be pretty creative when it comes to making fun of kids names too. I know I have time to decide and think about this, and pick out girls names, just wanted some opinions and feedback. BTW, we already have some possible boys names that we are choosing from for the future, in case anyone was wondering.

elijah is a lovely name. but what I really think is you need to get past this. his name is what it is and theres nothing you can do about it now.

i know his name is a good name. And I am past it, but what i'm saying is some of the names I'm really liking alot for a girl for the future are very close to Elijah, and I'm worried about having a boy and girl sibling with names that are almost identical. (see above) I know I can easily find other possible girls names for the future that aren't close sounding to Elijah, but I just wanted some opinions and feedback on whether or not I was being too picky or overthinking the situation.

I think you should pick what you like and not worry about anything else. All the names that you have listed are pretty normal so I'd just go with you love so that you won't feel this same regret after baby #4.
