    Alexander and Anders

    I have a step-son names Alexander. My husband has his heart set on naming our son Anders. While I really do like the name, I think it will be too similar to his brother's name. Alexander does not have a short-name yet; although I expect it will end up being Alex, it could possibly be Zander, even more like Anders than Alexander is.

    As background, my husband is Swedish and we want a Swedish name for our son.

    What do you think?

    I agree with you, I think they're way too close. It could get confusing when you're introducing them together. Maybe...

    I'm not sure how popular any of these are in Sweden, but I like all of them and think they would work in a multilingual family!

    I agree that they are too similar.
