    Are Clara and Celia too similar for sisters?

    We have two kids named Julius and Clara, and we are expecting our third (and final) baby.

    One of the names on our list is Celia. Do you think Clara and Celia are too similar for sisters?

    I think they could work their sounds are distinct enough .
    My only doubt is that when i said Julius, Clara and Celia together i ended uo wanting to say Julius Caesar but thats probably just me being weird

    Clara and Celia are lovely together. Not too similar so they are confusing at all. However, Julius and Celia do sound like Julius Caesar. I don't think that's a deal breaker though

    They might look quite similar but the sounds are actually pretty different.
    I would use it.

    I'm a Celia and I used to have a close friend named Clara. Neither of us noticed anything about our names being similar, and as a namenerd I feel like I would have if they were!

    Celia and Clara work fine, but I had the same automatic thought of Caesar when I considered your son’s name in the mix.

    Well, sort of! I get compliments on my name almost every time I introduce myself, which is very sweet. I like the name on others. It has a lot going on for it (unique, nice meaning, classy) though I personally don't think it suits me (a bit too soft and feminine for my personality). I always say yes to parents thinking about using it, because chances are she's going to like her name.
