    I'm not sure how to pronounce any of those!!! (This can be an issue...)

    They all seem to fit the same style, so it would make sense that they'd be sisters, so that works.

    Elspeth is vintage and Biblical to me, strong and sturdy.
    Cosima is a little more frilly, a bit more flirty.
    Neoma looks like a made-up variant of Naomi.

    I don't think they work together all that well, sorry.

    Elspeth seems a bit of an odd one out. It's sweet and more firm that the airy, romantic Cosmia or the odd and eclectic Neoma. Cosmia and Neoma might work, but not with Elspeth.

    (It's Cosima)

    I agree that they don't completely fit, but you can name one kid Ruth-Anne and the other Azulla, so how alike the names are really isn't that much of an issue. Not all parents have a particular [I]theme[I] to what they name their kids. It all depends on the characters.
