Are these names too close?
No kids or anything, but, I'm looking at a list of boys names that I will probably choose if I have children, and I noticed that they end in EL (sort of/the sound if EL).
I've loved these names for years and have only just realised that they end in the same sound. I just saw a post asking if 2 girl names were too close because they both had the same last 3 letters.
What do you think? Too close?

I think any two of these would make a handsome sib set. Three might be a bit much. :-P
I know brothers named Gabriel and Daniel, and I think it's a lovely sibling set. Yes, they end in the same sound, but they are different enough up front to sound really nice together. They also start with different letters, which helps.
I especially like Gabriel and Samuel together, as they are also linked as Biblical names. I think another Biblical name would fit best:
Angus Loudon "Gus"*Dagny Gertrude* *Florence Imogen* *Ada Katherine "Ada Kate"* *Tessa Pearl* *Amity Geneva* *Ursula Bryony**Jethro Daniel "Jed"/"Jet"* *Harvey Blaise* *Jeremy Vincent "Jem"* *Laszlo Ozias "Lo"* *Leif (LAYf) Matthew "Lem"* *Chester William "Chet"*

I think it's ok, especially since they'll probably go by nicknames. Style wise, they're great together.Esme Cordelia | Etta Rosemary | Fiona Elspeth | Matilda Hazel | Phoebe Kerensa | Rosalie Fern | Thea Marigold | Zara Madeleine

I don't think they sound too similar. The ending is a very diverse one. Plus if they go by nn's any of them they're all very different from one another.
