I already have a Charlotte and an Eliza and expecting DD3 in August. I love Harriet but my husband is concerned it is too similar sounding to Charlotte. Please give me your opinion. Thanks heaps.

I think the three names are all lovely and Harriet would fit in with your other two, not too similar in my opinion (don't you hate it when the time difference means nobody answers you for ages [grin})

I think they are all very pretty names, they go together well but are not too similar.

They do have quite a similiar end sound but they are not ludicrously similiar. I think that they are OK together.

I think they are al lovely-I am puzzled because I can't see any similarity.

lovely and not too similar at all, I see why you would think that with the T sound but with Eliza in the middle its just fine

congrats on your 3 girls, its fab fun smile

That's not a big deal at all, but Harriet isn't a nice name imo. What about Juliet?
Much nicer.

abraid Mon 15-Jun-09 11:23:48

Just fine, I think.

I like Harriet. Actually, I like Juliet, too.

I think they are lovely. Very trad, very pretty and fit very nicely with Eliza.

Excellent choices all three. smile

I have a Harriet, it's a lovely name and not too similar. Go for it

I think they go well and dont sound too similar.

They do tend to get called Hattie when they're older which isn't quite so lovely, but otherwise I think it's a nice name and goes well with Charlotte. And I don't think they're too similar.

I think it is a bit too similar in that if you bellowed one up the stairs they might be a bit confused, as they both end in a "t" sound.

(That is my patented "bellowing-up-the-stairs" test)

Lovely. I wanted a Harriet (Hattie) after 'Tom's Midnight Garden' but dp wouldn't have it. It goes beautifully with the other names.

PlentyOToole Mon 15-Jun-09 20:12:13

nope not similar.
charlie and Harrie.
Beautiful, one is my sister's name and the other is one I wanted for my dd.

bodiddly Mon 15-Jun-09 20:15:41

I don't think they are too similar in their full form but if they are shortened to Hattie and Lottie then it may get a little more confusing!

Firawla Mon 15-Jun-09 20:18:05

no they are fine together

Servalan Mon 15-Jun-09 20:18:24

I don't think they sound too similar at all - wouldn't even have crossed my mind.

Love, love, love the name Harriet btw smile

eandh Mon 15-Jun-09 20:20:08

my dd2 was going to be Charlotte but we went with Hattie (dh wasnt keen on Harriet but loved Hattie) I think they go really well together especially with Eliza

HerHonesty Mon 15-Jun-09 20:22:51

very much of the same ilk. depends if you are very posh or not.

nymphadora Mon 15-Jun-09 20:27:05

I have both grin grin

We don't know any other Harriets!

Reality - do you know me?

Rolf Mon 15-Jun-09 21:18:10

All lovely names and go together very well. I have a Harriet (Hattie) smile

DD is Harriet Sophie Charlotte, she is always called harriet, never ever been called Hattie or Harry!
