NO vs. YES

Can I use Tobias for my youngest if my second oldest name is Matthias? I worry about the -ias ending.

I think they are fine to use, they aren’t too close. If you are worried about the -ias ending, then what about just Toby or Tobin?

My husband has two sisters named LoraLyn and MaeLyn. I think if they can have the same ending in their first names, I think your boys can, too.

I would just use Toby.

I think the fact that they are both three syllables and end in -ias is a bit much, especially if you have to call out to both of them, but I love the sound Toby and Mathias make together. It’s very rhythmic.

Toby is a bit informal and nicknamey for us. Tobin is cute but not to our liking. Thanks for the opinions. We’ll ponder our options.
