Are these names too similar for 2 female siblings (full names Katherine & Matilda). Kitty is name of our LG, baby on the way....
Thoughts welcome x

The full names sound good together. Could you call her Tilda or Mattie instead of Tilly?

Tilly is a lovely name.

(Not that I'm biased or anything grin)

They sound nice together I have a Tilly and a Lottie. Full names Matilda and Charlotte.

The full names are lovely, I don't like shortened y names if that makes sense

Love Lottie but feel again too similar to Kitty confused

Other options-
Beatrice (my fave but my LG has a little friend called this)
Nel (don't really like Eleanor or Penelope though and I would want to give her a longer name
Belle (Isobel)

Boys name will be Jim (James)

Why not. It's cute.

But Beatrice is lovely as well.

I think they're fine together, especially as the full names are quite different.

Nel can also be a nn for Helen... Kitty and Tilly sound fine together though!

I hope you have a boy grin. I love Jim.

I like Belle, but I think Tilly is fine.

Oh I like Belle too! confused
Very confused and hate not having names sorted.
Thanks for replies

Kitty and Tilly? Let's hope no one gets the TTs and LLs mixed up...

Sugarpiehoneyeye Tue 20-Dec-16 21:15:26

I love Kitty! However Tilly is very popular I know quite a few! On its own and as a form of Matilda.

How about Peggy? Short for Margaret. Or Nancy? Or Annie?

I love Beatrice or Beatrix... Trixie or Bee?

Good luck!

They are lovely and not too similar at all.

I don't think there's a problem with those together at all. Katherine and Matilda are gorgeous full names and it's a nice bonus that both lend themselves to cute childhood nicknames.

I do prefer Tilda as a nickname for Matilda though - Kitty and Tilda would be fab!

It's fine!

Stick with those names, they are beautiful. I highly doubt anyone could mix up Kitty and Tilly unless they are a bit slow!
