    Need a name that goes with sibling Zoe!

    I'm due in 6 weeks and we are getting down-to-the-wire in terms of choosing a baby name! We don't know the baby's sex, but feel confident about our boy's selection (Julian). We have a 2-year-old girl named Zoe and are thinking of Eliza for another girl... but is it funny to have two names with Z's? Are Zoe and Eliza too similar to each other? Our last name is Baker.
    Another thought for a girl's name is Sonia -- though of course I wonder if Sonia and Zoe are too similar sounding as well.
    Please chime in!
    Thanks.

    Re: Need a name that goes with sibling Zoe!

    I love Eliza, and personally don't find it too matchy with Zoe. Granted, both names have a Z sound, but Zoe is two syllables and ends in a long E sound, while Eliza is three syllables and has a different ending (not to mention a different beginning sound).


    Because both Sonia and Zoe contain long O sounds at the beginning, I do personally think they're too similar. (I hear Zo and So, and I know I'd personally make a tongue twister out of their names when saying them aloud. I can hear myself saying, "Soe and Zonia.) :-)

    In case you're still looking for ideas:

    Amelia
    Annabelle (a bit B heavy with Baker, though)
    Anneliese
    Anna (I love A names paired with Zoe...) :-)
    Charlotte
    Caroline
    Cora
    Diana
    Iris
    Lydia
    Miranda
    Olivia (popular, but I think it works well with Zoe)
    Stella
    Tess/Tessa
    Violet
    Vivienne (means life, like Zoe)

    Best wishes to you! :-)

    I don't think Zoe and Eliza are too similar at all! The z's come in different places, so it isn't very noticeable, and I think make lovely names for sisters!

    I also love the suggestion of Zoe and Iris.

    Good luck!
