    Are Felicity and Eloise "Elsie" too close for sisters?

    My daughter Felicity gets called Lissie as a pet name but it's just like calling a Zachary "Zacky" or something, it's not what she would introduce herself as to anyone or anything (not that she can yet haha). Eloise would go by Elsie probably 80% of the time and it would be more official. She would get called Lou, Ellie, Elle, etc. as pet names (please no suggestions of just naming her Elsie or of going by the full Eloise, this part is set in stone!) Would Felicity and Elsie be too close for sisters? If it makes a difference, siblings names are Audrey Cecilia, Jude Alexander, Christian Nathaniel, Violet Annabelle, and then Felicity Charlotte is the baby of the group. Thanks so much!

    Personally, I wouldn't name her Eloise if you're so set on calling her Elsie and her big sister's name is Felicity. Felicity and Eloise are great! Felicity and Elsie are way too similar. I just wouldn't do it. All lovely names though!

    As much as I like Felicity and Eloise together, I don't think I would use Eloise if you plan to use Elsie as a nickname when you already have a Lissie.

    It's too 'el'-y and 's'-y. They clash too much sorry.

    But I must say Audrey Cecelia and Jude Alexander. Me oh my.

    First off, I love all your children's name. Personally, I don't think felicity and Eloise are too close. Although I agree that the nicknames Elsie and lissie are close, I don't think that should matter because those are their nicknames and not their given names, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.
