    Sisters names?

    It's taken me a while, but I *think* I have decided on a name for our second baby if it's a girl (we aren't finding out).

    Our daughter's name is Amelia (always called Millie, though). I came across the name Emmeline (pronounced Emma-line like Caroline). It never even occurred to me that these names were very similar until I saw that they came from the same root originally.

    Would Amelia and Emmeline (or really, Millie and Emmeline) be too similar? I really like that it's old fashioned and still uncommon, even though there are lots of Emilys and Emmas around.

    Amelia and Emmeline are too similar for me.

    Yeah, it's a bit too similar, especially since they come from the same root. It's kind of like using Katherine and Katarina or something!

    Btw, when I looked up the name Emmeline, I found lots of Emmeline Amelias in old genealogy records.

    That's very interesting info! It doesn't really change my personal opinion; I think the names are too similar for siblings or for a fn-mn combo, but these are your lovely littles and you get the awesome privilege of naming them however you please However, you did ask for input, and I was just being candid; I apologize if I offended.

    Are you looking at alternative names at all/do you want any suggestions?
