Expecting our third, not sure what we are having but have quite a decent list of boys names left over from the last two pregnancies, so would love some thoughts particularly on a girls name to accompany.
i wouldn't say i like overly trendy names, i have managed to pick a couple of unique names for our boys however i don't feel that picking something uncommon is necessary.
Also thoughts on wether we need to go with another 3 letter name? i don't feel that we do but getting a lot of comments and external pressure to pick a 3 letter again?
won't post my current list yet, as am curious to hear what kind of names everyone else feels go well without swaying you!

I would actually not go a 3 letter name. It's a bit matchy matchy. If you did I would go Eli.
For girls you must have a long list after two boys!

I think I like the sound of a short name to match ... something like Anastasia would be a bit much.

Ari, Kit and Gem was what sprang straight to my mind. Even Clem (as a nn for Clementine).
I don't think 3 letters is necessary. Your boys' names have different numbers of syllables, so a slightly longer name for your third wouldn't feel out of kilter to me.
I would personally avoid a name with the same 'end' sound as either of your boys.
Ari, Kit and Sam
Ari, Kit and Rain/Rayne
Ari, Kit and Eve (3 letters, different sound, but v. popular)
Ari, Kit and Meg
Fern, Eden, Carys, Reese, Kate, Leia, Tess

I don't think you need to follow the 3 letter pattern, but I would stick to reasonably short and punchy. Both Kit and Ari have a bit of a classic but funky vibe so that's what I'd try to continue.

My first thought was Ari, Kit and Maya.
I don't think you need a three letter name, just something short and sweet and with a different sound.
Ari, Kit and...

I say keep with the 3 letter for the boy - Leo was the first name that came to mind when I saw the title and Zoe for a girl
girl 3 letter or a short name

I haven't read any other responses and the first name I thought of was Ned.
For a girl something simple

Another vote for Ari, Kit & Leo
Just flows so well and love that they are all very distinct.
Also like Ari, Kit & Sage (girl)

I don't think you need to stick to 3 letters, in fact I think it's better not to. Just keep to the same kind of feel, fresh and upbeat but with a traditional feel.
Sorry, there'll be repeats here as I haven't checked pps:
eta Eda is a sleek,stylish and unusual name that would work.
