Not remotely.

Not unless you are going to shorten them to Cass and Jass.

No, not too similar.

Although when shouting and getting muddled, as invariably happens, you will shout Casper

No, but they don't sound very nice together in my opinion.

They do sound quite similar...there's a high probability of them being 'paired' as Cass and Jasp.

Mmmm, now you mention it, Cass and Jass...

Is Cassia pronounced Cash-iya or Cass-iya?

Shangrilalala Wed 04-Dec-19 04:58:29

No, and Cassia in particular, is gorgeous!

user1493494961 Wed 04-Dec-19 09:02:50

Yes, Cass and Jas.

MrsBertBibby Wed 04-Dec-19 10:50:47

Too similar.

peppinanna Wed 04-Dec-19 12:45:11

I think too similar too

Tillygetsit Wed 04-Dec-19 22:34:48

It's another point he's made about Jasper. He's really not keen so I'm going to have to let it go...just as I did with my first and second choices angry

Lots of 'sss' going on in both names, caSSia, JaSsssper. I do like Cassia though...but really don't like Jasper at all, sorry 🤷‍♀️

Not imposssible but too similar for me. I think you would end up with Cass and Jass.

mathanxiety Thu 05-Dec-19 03:03:15

@Tillygetsit, I suggest you return to your first and second choices and ask him to compromise.

Is this a first child for him?

mathanxiety Thu 05-Dec-19 03:03:55

Or do I have your H mixed up with someone else's?

EmmaGrundyForPM Thu 05-Dec-19 03:15:34

I think they sound similar, yes. Also there is the Cass/Jass factor.

NoSauce Thu 05-Dec-19 07:01:58

They’d get Jassia and Casper.

Tillygetsit Thu 05-Dec-19 22:50:26

This is his second child. I have 2 from a previous marriage. He's vetoed my first choice because he says he went to school with hundreds and my second because it sounds like an old man in a grey cardigan 🙄

What was it? Earnest? Reggie? Albert?
