    Is Tessa to similar to Elsa?

    We are expecting our 4th baby. We already have Elsa, Dylan and Otis.

    If it’s a girl, we both like Tessa, but I worry it’s too similar to Elsa. What do you think? Any other suggestions? (I love Iris, but hubby not keen).

    I think it could be an issue functionally since Tessa and Elsa both end in -sa. So it might get confusing when you're calling for one daughter and get a response from the other?

    That said, it's certainly not a dire similarity. My conclusion is if Tessa is the name you really really love most then it's worth any minor hassle the similar sounds may cause.

    Hi there.

    Your kids have great names! I do think that Tessa is quite similar to Elsa. I don't think that Tess is necessarily too close though. What do you think of just Tess?

    I agree might get confusing calling them but they're not drastically similar.
    I also agree Tess would be a good alternative or Thessaly

    I think the -sa endings do make the names sound quite similar. Do you always call your daughter Elsa? If she is sometimes called Elsie then I don't think an Elsie and a Tessa would be too similar. I agree with the above posters that just Tess would eliminate the problem.

    Others you might like:

    I don’t feel they are to similar at all, however you could use Tess instead? A similar names to Iris is Ivy.

    They work fine together if it were Elsa and Tesla there may be an issue.

    Unfortunately, I think they are too similar for sisters. Tess or Theresa nn Tessa would give you a great solution!
