Hello! smile

Are Caden and Ciaran too similar?

I hope not...

Thank you x

I know someone who has a Caden and a Ciaran. It's never occurred to me that they're too similar tbh.

Ah, that's a shame!

Definitely too similar.

I don't like that combo. The sounds are too similar.

Aidan and Ciaran works though

Too similar.

Dare I say it, any consonant + Aidan doesn't sound good.
Just stick with Aidan as Ciaran is a classic gaelic name and if you do Zaydan or Vadan with something as solid sounding as Ciaran it just sounds a mixture of styles

That's rude hmm I already have a Caden. We are considering Ciaran...

Caden is a name inspired by my great-grandmother Cadence.

Cadan and Liam or Declan

Leon could go. Or Owen or Ethan

I also know someone who has a Caden and a Ciaran. If you like it, then definitely go for it!!

Although I know Ciaran is the classic spelling could you spell it Kieran so they at least have different initials?

Way too similar for me, not just in sound but visually as well.
