I say Grayson and Gracyn different. Gray-son and Grace-in. Aaron/Erin I say the same, but for some reason Aaron is dated to me but Erin still have potential in being cute. Noel and Noelle are different names, Nole vs No-el. I don't have an opinion on Elisha / Alisha, but just by looking, I'd say they are different. I'm not really familiar with the names. I don't really like how they look. I view Rene/Renee the equal, just different genders.

Rene/Renee and Grayson/Gracyn are the same. Elisha/Alisha are different since I pronounce the first one ee-lish-uh. Alisha to me's pronounce'd uh-lish-uh.

Elisha / Alisha: Same.
Noel / Noelle: Noelle is just the feminine from of Noel so same name I guess but they are pronounced differently.

Aaron and Erin are different, but they'd still be too similar to use for siblings.

While Aaron and Erin are pronounced the same (by most Americans at least), they are VERY different names with VERY different backgrounds.

Aaron is a Hebrew/Egyptian Biblical name with an unknown meaning (it *possibly* means "high mountain" or "exalted", but this is debated).

Erin means "Ireland".

Very different names.

Rene and Renee are male/female versions of the same name.

Grayson is a surname and has been used as a male first name (I have a friend named Grayson), and Gracyn is a creative spelling of Grayson and has become popular for girls because it sounds like Grace + (L)yn.

Noel and Noelle are male/female versions of the same name, however, unlike the previous combos, these two are typically not pronounced the same. Noel (the name, not the holiday) is pronounced like nole (rhymes with pole), whereas Noelle is pronounced like the holiday Noel: no-EL. This being said, I have a friend who's son is named Noel, and they pronounce it no-EL.
