Jane as a sister to Anne?

My husband and I are having a disagreement about this - I'm pregnant with #3, #1 is Anne (we call her Annie), #2 is Luke (which is not relevant to this particular discussion but whatever) - my husband's favorite girl name is Jane - now I love the name Jane, a lot, but to me it's VERY similar to Anne, especially if we ended up calling her Janie, which I know we will - we call Luke Lukey all the time, it just happens. I know one has a short A one has a long A, but still. My girl name choice, which he also "likes, but not as much as Jane" is Charlotte, and if we do that it'll be Charlotte Jane, and our boy name is Charles.

Anyway, do people think Anne and Jane are too similar to each other to use for sisters?

  • Not at all. Anne and Jane are lovely together and not too similar.

    Thanks for the feedback! I will not show these to my husband, ha :) Guess we'll just see 1 - if it's a girl, and 2 - which feels right once she's born
  • I like it much better than Charlotte
    Love charles!


    No periods due to 17 years of ballet and distance running after college.  Zero response to 2 months of Clomid, little response to Letrozole.  IUI left with 9 cysts = too many viable eggs due to age.  On to IVF.  Low dose of all meds still produced 37 mature eggs 12.6.11.  Froze due to overstimulation.

    FET #1.3 3.2013 BFN FET#1.4 4.2013 BFN. Never tried a fresh transfer.  Let's try, despite 10 still frozen.

    I don't think they're similar at all.
    I like Jane so much more than Charlotte.
  • I think that they are fine together. Charlotte is nice too.
  • I don't find them similar at all other than being one syllable. I think they go really well together without sounding the same. Anne, Luke, and Jane are a great sibset.

  • My best friend is Jayne, her sister is Anne. Always thought they complimented one another!
