    Are Elle and Isla too similar?

    My daughter's name is Elle and I love the name Isla. My husband thinks they sound too alike. Thoughts?

    They are pretty similar but I'm in a minority here that thinks you're a kid for a short period of time where your names are matched with your sibs. I will give a practical piece though as a teacher I have SUCH a hard time with siblings with same letter names that sound the same-- but all that happens is I call the wrong kid the wrong name.

    I don't think they're too close. My brothers' names are way more similar than Elle and Isla, and we've survived just fine, haha.
    I think Elle and Isla are nice together!
