No, I don't think so

Similar style of name, in a good way - they sound fine together.

I think the one potential issue with this is that when you are calling your children from a distance, having two one-syllable names with the same vowel sound makes them sound confusingly similar. A neighbour of ours with sons called Jude and Luke is always complaining about this and saying she'd have chosen differently - apparently they regularly use the excuse that they thought she was calling the other one to ignore shouts to come in for dinner/bed/homework!

I know sisters called grace and kate. Very similar style I would say but not too similar to not be together.

Don't sound similar to me! Think they go very well together.

They're fine.

I knew two brothers called Neil and Leigh. They were two extremely similar sounding names.
