following on from the eve or eva thread our these names too similar for cousins . we had chosen and we were happy with our choice but now in a panic. there is an 8 year age gap and my dn lives in australia so we rarely see her . surnames are also different .
the name we'd like to use is annabel nn belle my niece is isabella nn izzy.

i feel it probably is ok as to have sisters called annabel and isabella would not be particularly odd both names being stand alone names in their own right .
opinions and advice but be gentle please

I can't see any problem with that - different sounds and short forms smile

i would say there is no problem, they are not that similar and they are not sisters
