    Hi all!

    After some advice regarding a sibling name for our little boy...

    We have a nearly 4 year old called Fletcher. We have decided on Archer if we were to have a boy this time (due in October) but when we told my Dad our choice in name (I know, I shouldn't have done it!) he laughed & said we couldn't do that...

    I know the names have very similar meanings - would this put you off of using the name for a sibling? I'm pretty much decided on it anyway and have learnt to not tell anyone else our name choice as people are so judgemental... I just wanted some opinions of people that I don't really know - (if that makes sense?!)

    Thanks for reading!

    I don't see that they are overly similar. I used to go to school with a girl called Amy who's brother was called Jamie!! I think they sound really nice together xx

    I think its lovely and not too similar. Unless other people can go through childbirth for you then they dont get the right to be negative. They sound beautiful together

    Well a Fletcher is someone who makes bows and arrows, whilst an Archer is someone who uses them, they'd make quite a team ;)

    I think the fact they have similar meaning makes them go together really nicely! Besides, you can choose whichever name you like, it's nothing to do with anyone else x
