Ok, I've been lurking around for a while and you may have seen my posts.
I have a 4 year old DD named Allison Kathleen. We usually call her Allison or Allie.
We are expecting baby girl #2 and DH has FINALLY given me something to work with. He said he might be ok with Ashlyn Viola and for a nn we'd use Ash. This name was on the list because he had suggested Ashley first time around for Allison but I vetoed it because I've known too many Ashleys and they tended to be pretty snobby. I came up with the alternative Ashlyn this time around and he said he might be OK with that. He did flat out deny the traditional spelling of Aislinn and I'm OK with that because that would be SO much trouble going through her life correcting the pronunciation!!!
Anyway, now I'm wondering, are Allison and Ashlyn too similar?
Ashlyn would probably go by both Ashlyn AND Ash, just like Allison is both Allison and Allie.
But when scolding a child you HAVE to use the full name, not a nickname. But I was testing them aloud and they sound awfully similar....
What do you all think?
Allison and Ashlyn too similar?
