    Are Isaac and Violet too close sounding for siblings?

    Hi all,
    Just wondering if you think the long I sounds in Isaac and Violet make them too close for siblings (also they wouldn't be the only children - older sister does not share that same sound...) ?

    I think they are just fine together. Sure, they both have long I, but I don't think thats reason enough to ditch either name. The rest of the sounds are pretty distinctive.

    Totally fine. I really dislike matching sibling names, but I actually like that they share the same vowel sound. It's a subtle similarity and is nice. Go for it!
