    Redundant?

    Hello
    This is my first post on nameberry. I've been reading other people's post for a while, so I thought I would finally join in

    That being said, I have a question about a name I've been thinking about: Linnea Hazel.
    I like the combo a lot, but the meanings are kind of similar. Are they too similar?

    I'm not prego, and my husband and I aren't ttc. I just love coming up with names for the future

    Thanks!

    Welcome to Nameberry!

    I think the meaning of Linnea is obscure enough that most people won't make the connection. And if they do--so what? Nature names are awesome!

    The ending of Linnea and the beginning of Hazel run together a bit, but I still like it.

    If you choose another MN, the sibset of Linnea & Aveline is very sweet!

    I agree with this. Linnea isn't an overly in your face nature name. Paired up with Hazel it is fine.

    I think Linnea Hazel is fresh and fabulous! I doubt many will know or care about similar meanings.

    I agree with pp's I don't actually think they are redundant. It's not like your considering two names that actually mean the same or very similar things.
    With Linnea being such an "un-naturey" nature name I doubt anyone would ever really notice unless you point it out. I rather like Linnea Hazel. Very pretty!
