Is Everett too close to Everest?
I'm starting to really love this name as a first name!
I pronounce it Ev-uh-rit/ret, is that correct?
I feel it's unique but not too out there and it's a vintage gem. My biggest concern is that it sounds so similar to Mt. Everest it would be a quick correction if someone thought I or Everett himself stated that his name was "Everest" but the similairty is what really has me on the fence. Otherwise it's a perfect name to add to my list!
Any opinions/thoughts etc. will be greatly appreciated

I think that they're obviously close, but that's kind of like saying that Claire and 'clear' are too close... I don't think it matters. While similar in sound, I'm not sure there'll get confused too often.
Actually though, I have a friend whose sister had decided on Everest but everyone thought she'd picked Everett (she had a girl in the end). I think there'll be more people who get Everett right than people who get it wrong and think it's Everest.Lucia
