    Are Anthony and Anna too similar to be siblings?

    Anthony is my father's name and I've always wanted to use it. However, my S/O is super picky about girl names and Anna is one of only three he actually likes. I love it, too, and I would like to use it, but I'm worried Anthony and Anna are too similar (I didn't plan on using the nickname Tony, either).

    Francis is our other boy option. I was thinking maybe Francis Anthony could work if we use Anna. Elizabeth is our top girl choice but we plan to have 3-4 children so I want to have options laid out depending on how genders go.

    What do you think?

    Personally, I'd find them a little matchy as they have the same beginning, but I don't think they're so matchy that it would be the end of the world of you used both

    I really like Francis Anthony though!

    They are matchy, but not in an obnoxious way, like Eli and Ella or Jane and John.
    Personally I prefer Francis over Anthony, but if those are your favourite names, I'd use them and not worry about matchiness.

    I do think they're a little close, but the length sets them apart enough that they could be siblings.

    They are matching, but not over done. Francis Anthony is handsome!
