    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).

    Gabriel
    Samuel
    Maxwell

    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?

    Thanks :roll:

    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:
    Micah
    Michael
    Elias
    Elijah
    Elisha
    Nathaniel/ Nathanael
    Daniel
    Azriel

    *Jethro Daniel "Jed"/"Jet"* *Harvey Blaise* *Jeremy Vincent "Jem"* *Laszlo Ozias "Lo"* *Leif (LAYf) Matthew "Lem"* *Chester William "Chet"*

    These make a great sib set! They can always fall back on Gabe, Sam and Max.

    I think it's ok, especially since they'll probably go by nicknames. Style wise, they're great together.

    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.
