Hi Jennifer,

We have a son Brandon. Is Brenna too similar for a little sister name? Looking for an honest opinion.

Thanks,

Mary Donaghey

Dear Mary,

I do think those are very similar names. You want to make sure siblings have their own identity. I know you don’t have twins, but I would especially recommend individual names for twins.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
