2nd Delimma... Cousins Everett & Jett?!?

If any of you read my last post you know that my SIL is pg and announced before the pee dried. I knew I was pg for 2 weeks before she announced and we have had our names picked for years since we went thruogh infertility... we were all set... ugh... that is until she announced her boy name the other day. (keep in mind we will not announce pg till after our us next friday the 16th)

Jett... Jett isnt a perticularly awful name of anything... I dont think it goes with sister Audrey Elise, but thats not my issue here...

Our name for years has been Everett... NOW what am I going to do?

I'm praying that we have opposites so that it doesnt matter, but what if we do. We literally DO NOT like any other name!! Are Everett and Jett too close together?

I dont even feel like the Ellery and Audrey problem is a problem anymore compared to this and I am ULTRA stressed out.

I also wanted to ask once more what you though of sibling set Adelaide Emmalou and Ellery Snow... is it too different or are the styles just different enough to work. I dont feel like Ellery and Adelaide are too off from eachother, but I was just wondering what all of your thoughts are on these 2 issues... lol... they may not even be issues but I've been feeling awfully hormonal!

Aside from the fact that both names end in "t" I don't think Everett and Jett sound alike at all.

Everett and Jett are two very different styles.

I'm with everyone else. I don't see a problem at all. It doesn't even occur to me that the names are similar.

I don't see them as the same at all.
