    Do you think sibsets ending with the same sound are a problem?

    I've been revamping my favorites list, and I've noticed that most of my favorite girl names end in an -a sound. Nora, Joella, Irina, Mara, Mariah, Lyra, etc...
    Obviously I wouldn't use all of them, but do you think three sisters named Irina, Mariah, and Lyra would be iffy?

    I have the same problem! I love Irisa, Eliora, Luna, Camilla, Aurelia, Arabella, and Amelia. But I think it might get a little obnoxious if all of my kids names ended with an -a sound. I'd try to break it up a little bit with similar names with a different ending.

    It depends i guess. I mean, my first 2 have a -n ending but its never bugged me. I do know of families with 3-4 siblings who.have similar endings (all of them are the same gender) and thats a little much....like I know a family with an Owen Ethan, Liam and Carson and all those just mesh together too much for my taste.

    For me it depends on the number of syllables usually. Even though I wouldn't rule it out, I'd be more cautious about using names with the same end sound if they also have the same number of syllables.

    It bothers me, but it doesn't seem to bother most people.
    example - a friend of mine has 3 boys and all of their names end in N
    Logan, Dylan, Aaden
