    I don't like them together, sorry. Amelia is vintage but has gotten a boost several years ago and is so popular nowadays that it doesn't seem all that vintage anymore. Daphne is a very old, vintage name that, while not too harsh, sounds too old next to Amelia (in my opinion of course).

    My daughter is named Daphne, so I'm biased of course. We picked it because it was beautiful, vintage and well-known but not popular. (I don't get harsh?) We had been going back and forth with the name Lily, but Daphne seemed feisty/spunky--like our daughter.

    Although both seem British, Amelia and Daphne seem to be from different eras. I picture Gothic England with Daphne and the Roaring 20s with Amelia. That said, I have a hard time matching Daphne to any sibset. I expect I'll be posting something similar to yours if we have baby No. 2.

    TL;DR I love Daphne, but the match with Amelia seems off.
    First-born coming April 27, 2014!

    I really love Amelia and Daphne together. I never really thought of ever pairing those two names together but I love it. I think both names are really sweet, I don't think Daphne is a harsh name at all.

    Thanks for the comments! I really like Daphne but, to me, it sounds quite different from the usually quite soft/lilting names I tend to like ('harsh' was maybe the wrong word to use - after all, I do like the name). Different can be good though, because I would like my kids to have distinctly different names. But are the names too different? I don't know. Thanks again for chiming in!

    I love Daphne. It doesn't sound harsh to me at all. It sounds like the name of a woman who is all business when she wants to be, but has a quirky and fun loving side. Amelia doesn't really match Daphne in my opinion, but I think it's fine. I wouldn't recommend them for twins, but for sisters it would work okay.
    Not expecting, I just love names <3
