If you have or could have multiples would you dress them alike and make their name sound similar also? me I wouldn't because I would want them 2 feel like they are their own person. I have experience in it because my brothers and sister are triplets they are six and it was my stepfather's 1st set of kids so my mom let him name them and just because they have the same letter in their name everyone gets them mixed up they look nothing alike and their names are different (James and Jammie) and sometimes they say they wish people stop saying they look alike or are they twins because they don't know the 3rd one is a girl.... so if you had multiples what would you do :)

I would not dress them alike because I really hate it nor would I name them anything that is close in the way it sounds. Yes they are twins but they are 2 different people and should be treated that way. Thats just me though :)

Nope I wouldn't name them or dress them the same. They aren't the same. They are two,three or more different people and for all I know they mighty not even get along. .lol they would have separate names and be treated the same by me and dh but not to the point where they have no individual identity.

I wouldn't name my kids anything alike multiples or not. My sisters and I were all S names and its quite the young twister. We all have quite the age gap too. I dont think I would dress my kids to match. They need to express that they are different and its good to be different.

I think it's cute to dress them alike, but not the same (ie, same shirt but opposite colors) and I like the same letter to start but I would make their names very different.. Jamie is a Nick name for James... I could see a James and Justin or other letters like Caleb and Cole etc... lol. And at least the third was a girl.. she'll have separation at least lol
