    I agree! I like Eamon and Rowan as siblings, and although they are similar, they are not too close.

    I'd be tripping over them as their mother but if you're happy to go 'come here Rowan errr Eamon' every meal time I don't think sibling names matter much. I constantly call my daughters by the wrong names and they are nothing alike. It's not as if you're naming them Jack and Jacqueline.

    Eamon is such a great name I say go ahead!

    Sure they are similar but I think they are also different enough for it to work if you can move past the similar sounding last syllable. It depends on your personal preference.

    They're definitely close, but perhaps right on the border of being too close to work together IMO (so close to the border that it's hard to say what side of the border they're on). If it doesn't overly bother you, I don't think it would bother others either. If it seems to be the 'one', go for it.

    Yep.

    I'm really picky about my name combos but even this doesn't bother me!
