    Is Isla too close to Olivia?

    My husband and I don't agree on this. He says that they're not 'too close' but I think they are. I've loved Isla for a long time but I just can't imagine sisters with names that close. Am I right or is he (based on your opinion)?
    If you think they are too close I would love suggestions! Big sister's name is Olivia Li Mei and for a boy we've already picked Nathaniel, which was my grandfather's name. Thank you in advance for any help!

    No, I don't think they are too close. They have a similar style, but are a completely different sound in my head. Isla is just lovely! If you do feel it is too close, what about Iona?

    They both have a similar feel but are also very different - would make a nice sibset!

    I don't think they are too close at all.
