    Elizabeth and Isabella.too similar?

    i adore both Isabella nn Bella and Elizabeth nn Lizzie or Eliza and i would love to use it for my future DD.the problem is that Isabella is the spanish varation of Elizabeth .do you think it would be weird to have two daughters with these names ?

    thanks in advance

    Yes. It would be too similar. You could take elements of the name instead like Elizabeth and Arabella. It would be most unfair not to differentiate and give each their proper individuality.

    Isabella is a form of Elizabeth so yes, they are too similar. It'd be like naming brothers Ian and John.
