Sophie and Joseph - too similar?

Posted on here a few weeks ago about potential boys names for dc3 (sex unknown!) and got lots of feedback on Harry or Henry.

With just over 6 weeks to go, I still like Harry (Henry less so) but am not sure that I love it iykwim?

Another name that was top of the list when DD (DC2) was born is Joseph and now I keep coming back to it again.

My concern is that DD is a Sophie and I can't help wondering if Sophie and Joseph sound too similar - they're almost the same collection of letters. DH thinks I'm mad and they're in no way the same grin. What do you think?

Also, any thoughts on Joseph v Harry? If it helps, mn will probably be Felix or Benedict (DH has vetoed both as a first name before anyone suggests it!) and DC1 is Isaac.

I think it's fine and Joseph goes better with Issac than Harry does.

Joseph is a lovely name and doesn't sound too similar to Sophie at all.

Think they are both lovely, not similar at all.

I like both names, sorry not much help am I.

Both sound great with Sophie.

izzy I've been pondering this too recently! love the same Joseph and we have a Sophia. I think Isaac, Sophie and Joseph sound great together. Much prefer Joseph to Harry personally. Middle names - I'd go Benedict with Joseph..Joseph Felix has two 'f' sounds which kind of run into each other iykwim..

Good luck!
