Are these names too close to be a sibset?

I don't think any of those are two close for a sibset. I don't prefer the same first letter thing for siblings, but they're definitely okay.

I don't generally like names to rhyme too much so I would not personally use

Avenley & Ashby
or
Avenley & Brinley

I think Avenley & Isla and all the boy/boy boy/girl sets are fine.

Send a message via AIM to carlyheartsphil
the only one I would eliminate would be Avenley & Brinley with the same -ley/leigh/lee/ly ending. Everything else sounds ok.

To me, when reading Avenley and Brinley, the look too close but when saying them outloud I don't hear a problem. In fact, I know three brothers who all end in -ton and have given all their sons names that end in -ton too. And I know three sisters that end in -gan. They all seem to enjoy having that connection .

I think Brinley and Avenley are too close and depending on how you are pronouncing the 'ven' in Avenley-as in Ven or Van, or Vaughn- (it would depend on the accent) but...it is a bit close for my liking.

I think they go fine together! They keep a 'theme', but are different enough to not sound identical

I think they are all acceptable! Personally, I wouldnt use Avenley and Brinley together but that is just me.

I really like Isla, Bennett, and Vaughn!
