    Too close?

    I love the name Mary for our third daughter. But we have a close cousin named Meridth. Is Mary too similar to use?

    I come from a large family and on my mothers side quite a few of us have similar names and it was never a problem. It's just confusing for potential in-laws meeting us for the first time.

    I don't think they are too close at all and I love your choice of Mary! Mary and Meredith have similar sounds but they feel very different.

    I don't think they are that close. I think it would be a lovely choice, so refreshing to hear a little Mary! Mary and Meredith are sweet together and its not as if they are sisters, then it might be a little confusing!

    No problem at all. Mary and Meredith are quite different!
