Already have dd Eva. Is Ivy too similar?

Yes, sorry.

I know two siblings called Eva and ivy! It seems to work for them.

It’s a bit of a mouthful when said together.
Some good suggestions by Aww

AnyaMoondial Tue 20-Mar-18 21:12:02

I think it sounds fine.

Babymamamama Tue 20-Mar-18 21:13:01

Both lovely names. Go for it.

Macblondie Tue 20-Mar-18 21:16:01

I think they go really well together- go for it!

They are great pair names for kittens but not DC, I'm afraid

User27839494 Tue 20-Mar-18 21:28:35

Why is that Olenna? Your comment is actually quite rude as one of those names is actually her DDs.

I think they compliment each other quite nicely, OP

OlennasWimple Tue 20-Mar-18 21:33:24

I said "They are great pair names"

I love them both, I just don't like them together as personally I am not a fan of matching names for children, particularly ones that are very close to each other and are liable to get mixed up by people who don't see them that often.

Pets, OTOH, are a great opportunity to use pair names

(And if you thought my post was rude, you obviously haven't read many threads on here where people ask about Jayden, Mackenzie, Chase or whether to spell it Kayleigh or Kaylee)

I think they are a bit of a mouthful. I don't think it's dreadful, but I'd probably look for something else.

chezmk1988 Tue 20-Mar-18 22:19:38

I don't think it's too bad but I probably wouldn't go for something as close personally.

I think they sound lovely together!

I think it sounds lovely. Excellent choices 😊

ivykaty44 Wed 21-Mar-18 07:10:26

id rather be given my own name rather than my parents worrying if it sounds good with my sister or brothers name tbh

Unless I was going to be called Rose and I had a brother Fred then surely it’s not an issue?

bridgetreilly Wed 21-Mar-18 13:22:02

I wouldn't, sorry.

lovechocolatetoomuch Wed 21-Mar-18 15:13:48

Oooh I really like these together!

ursulaisawonderfulname Wed 21-Mar-18 16:28:11

I wouldn't, sounds a bit twee.

TatianaLarina Wed 21-Mar-18 16:43:48

Too similar. And Ivy’s not very nice.

Eva and Iona

Like. 👍🏼

DramaAlpaca Wed 21-Mar-18 20:04:49

I don't mind them together, as long as Eva doesn't get called Evie, as Evie & Ivy does sound too similar.

HairyToity Wed 21-Mar-18 20:34:40

I think it's fine.

They are a bit similar but if you love the names then use them.
