Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
I guess what I'm saying is hire someone else from another family besides the Brady's!! If they hire a new character, fine but IMHO there's more than enough Brady's.
I was bored, so I made a list of where everyone fits with each of the four main families either through biological relation or marriage. Daniel and Melanie I put in the Kiriakis range because Victor is Daniel's godson. Though with Melanie's relationship with Maggie they could, unfortunately, fit in with the Hortons.

Doug Williams (Temporary)
Julie Williams (Temporary)
Maggie Horton
Bo Brady
Hope Brady
Jennifer Horton
Abigail Deveraux
Will Horton
Ciara Brady
Allie Horton

Caroline Brady
John Black
Marlena Black

Kayla Brady (Temporary)
Bo Brady
Hope Brady
Austin Reed
Carrie Brady
Rafe Hernandez
Gabi Hernandez
Sami Brady
Will Horton
Ciara Brady
Johnny DiMera
Allie Horton
Sydney DiMera

Victor Kiriakis
Bo Brady
Hope Brady
Justin Kiriakis
Adrienne Kiriakis
Brady Black
Sonny Kiriakis
Ciara Brady
Daniel Jonas
Melanie Jonas

Stefano DiMera
Kate DiMera

Theo Carver
Chad DiMera
Johnny DiMera

Quinn Hudson
Madison James
Don't forget to add Jack Deveraux to the Horton list.
I think it's playing a little fast-and-loose by including someone like Gabi as a Brady. She's as much a Brady as Kayla is a Horton or Jack is a Kiriakis (due to who their siblings have married).

In any event, I think the bigger picture is to look at the various age groupings. There are a lot of Bradys in the "vets" (over-40) and young children group, but in the groups that are often the focus of major stories -- the 20-40 group, there are very few Bradys. The only biological ones are Sami and Carrie in the 25-40 group and Will in the college-age group.

Moreover, with respect to adding more Kiriakis and Horton members, the show is somewhat limited in its options. Unlike the Bradys, who have a slew of canon characters who could fit in the 20-40 group, the Hortons just don't have the same canon. Other than Lucas, Sarah and Jeremy, what canon characters fit into that younger group? So to add Hortons to those age groups, the show would have to bring in previously unknown Hortons like Nathan, who, IMO, audiences generally don't find as compelling as characters that they saw as children and that have established connections to the core families.

The same problem exists for the Kiriakis family. To bring in new Kiriakis family members in the 20-40 age groups, the show has limited options. Other than Justin's and Adrienne's other sons, any new Kiriakis kids would have to be surprise additions to the family tree or the children of previously unmentioned Kiriakis nieces and nephews.
