Yes for sure. They're very similar indeed.

They sound fine together to me.

I know someone with these sibsets.

One is called Issy and the other is called Gabby.

I think it's really nice.

But I seem to be outvoted, sorry!

Bad idea... Which is the name you already have?

Sharaluck Sat 08-Mar-14 23:39:26

Yes, sorry.

Gabrielle and Isabella
Gabriella and Isobel

^ Are much better

you need to tell us which one you've already named.

old hat - meaning- its a popular combination that plenty of others families have used before.

What do you mean 'a bit old hat'? Thanks

UniS Fri 07-Mar-14 23:45:51

a bit old hat. I know a sibling pair with those names. only Gabriella I know while i know a few Izzy's.

I know twins with those names, always thought it was a bit matchy. They go by Gabby and Bella though.

Yes .

SoftSheen Fri 07-Mar-14 21:45:47

Yes. What if their separate groups of friends each decide to abbreviate their names to Ella?

Littlefish Fri 07-Mar-14 21:42:05

Definitely too much.

Yes I would say it should be either or. These two names were the final two on my short list for dd3.

squoosh Fri 07-Mar-14 19:49:20

Way too much.

gilliangoof Fri 07-Mar-14 19:48:56

For me, yes. But if you like them go for it. They are not outlandish names. They are both good names.

Onesleeptillwembley Fri 07-Mar-14 19:48:22

Yes, especially having the same endings.

Mintyy Fri 07-Mar-14 19:45:11

Yes. I would want to have a complete contrast ... like Mary or Ruth or Florence or something.

I know a family who have an Evie and a Genevieve - I find that slightly odd.

soontobeslendergirl Fri 07-Mar-14 19:41:47

Gabrielle and Isabella sound better together - or Gabriella and Isobel depending on which you already have smile

HahaHarrie Fri 07-Mar-14 19:21:54

I would say yes, too much. I do like Gabriella and Isadora suggestion.

I know a Gabriella and Isabella. It's fine since they have nicknames anyway.

Clearly lots of people think it's a good combo since they're in the top ten twin names in the US.

If you shortened them to Ella and Izzy no, the full versions are a bit much together.
