    Are these names too close?

    Our daughter's name is Eliana...we are expecting baby #2.

    For boys names we are considering Emmett and Elliott. Are those too close to Eliana?

    I am open to other name suggestions. I tend to like names that are not popular, but also are not too unusual.

    I think Emmett is fine, buy Elliot is too close.

    Are you looking for only 'E' name suggestions, and would you like girl names too?

    I think Elliot and Eliana are too close. You can do another E-name if you want, but I would avoid El-names. Emmett is okay because the only think it has in common with Eliana is the first letter.

    Emmett is more doable than Elliot, in my opinion. I would only caution you of using another E name if you plan to have other children and are not sure you could find another E name you love. I think it would be odd to have Eliana, Elliot, and Clara.

    Emmett is fine, Elliot definitely is not. I echo corajsb in saying you can't be too careful when deciding to use the same initial on your first two kids, though.
