I am in love with the girl names Phoebe and Daphne. I don't know how I could ever choose between the two. Are they too similar to be used as a sibset?

First, I also absolutely ADORE both of those. I love a lot of Greek names, but since my style is Celtic names, I tend to use my favorite Greek names as pets names. I plan to use Daphne if we ever get another pet. Female of course. That's not to say it wouldn't be great on humans, LOL... I like to give my pets human names.

I don't think they're too similar, the only thing that's matchy is that they both end with the "ee" sound and they're both Greek. But I don't think it's that big a deal. I actually think Phoebe and Daphne make great sister names.

If you feel they're too close, what about Phaedra instead of Phoebe? lol... I have a dog named Phaedra. It's a Greek name as well.

I don't think they're too similar to be a sibset. I know lots of sibsets that end in similar sounds. It would be like Carson and Jaden.

I like both, but I do think they're too similar for sisters.

I was about to suggest Phaedra as an alternative to Phoebe!

Daphne is my absolute favorite name aside from Phoebe (i have a phoebe). If I were ever to have another daughter, her name would be Daphne (but i won't be having any more kids!).
I think they make a fantastic sibset!

I think they're very similar and wouldn't personally use them on sisters.
