Are these names too rhymey?

Am thinking of naming current bun in the over with a name a bit rhymey with existing dd (though we have a completely different name for other dd in between them. Don't want to give the names away here but they have the same final few letters but different first letters.

So like Milly and Sally.
Or Florence and Constance.
Or Samuel and Daniel
Or Mindy and Sandy

What do you think - one to avoid? It's the only girl's name I like. DD's rhymey name is a nickname though, a short version of a longer name, whereas baby name would be the rhymey name and the full name.

I decided against Elsie because we have a N ancy.

I know a Florence and Constance and until I read the OP I never thought of them as rhymey. They have a brother in between.

I'd avoid it, but maybe I overthink. When I used to hear Ed Milibands Daniel and Samuel - "what were they thinking??" was my overriding thought.

I think it depends on the actual names; some are less rhymy and better than others.

I think it's fine, it's not like it's Tom and Dom from the sounds of it which might be a bit silly. In saying that they will only be know as siblings ie Tom, Boris and Dom for a short part of their lives so it's not a big issue IMO.
