    Violet, Rose and Hazel as sisters?

    Violet, Rosalie "Rose" and Hazel

    Is this a little too strong of a theme for sisters? I love all three of these names, but it just occurred to me that they may seem a little... matchy.

    What do you think?

    They are beautiful names but do strike me as theme-y. I personally don't care for sisters with all flower names or all color names. But this sibset isn't glaringly matchy.......at first impression, I didn't immediately make the connection.

    They are very theme. But if you are okay with that I think they also work.
    I esp like Violet and Rosalie together. Hazel is nms. But I think something like Violet, Rosalie and Lillian would make the flower theme a little less of a “slap in the face” with Rosalie and Lillian being very slightly veiled variations.

    I agree that they are very themey, but I think you could get away with it if it was a lot of siblings and they didn't all have flowery names (like Violet, Emilia, Julian, Henry, Serena, William, Frederick, Penelope, Zara, Hazel, and Rowan, for example? Obviously, it wouldn't have to be to that extreme, even, lol. I think something like Violet, Julian, Emilia, Henry, and Hazel would be okay...). But yeah, just Violet, Rosalie and Hazel is a bit much, for me anyway.
