I was wanting to get some opinions on these names. I think they're too close for a sibset, I'm assuming you guys would agree with that? If not, let me know, because that would certainly make this task easier!

However... I really love them both and can't seem to pick one over the over. At the minute, I'm liking my Aurora combo more than my Aurelia combo. Suggestions for new combos are very welcome, please help me out!

My combos are..

Aurora Violet
Aurelia Imogen

So, in short: Which name do you prefer? Which combo do you prefer? Any combo suggestions? Also, how do you pronounce Aurelia? I say Aw-rel-ya, but my SO says Aw-reel-ear. That's causing some problems in itself, haha!

Thanks in advance! I think this might come out really disjointed but I got a little bit confused halfway through writing it!

I LOVE Aurelia and I pronounce it as you do. I do not care for Aurora for two reasons. 1) I don't care for the repeating R sounds and 2) I can't say it

Aurelia Violet is actually one of my favorite combos.

I love Aurora, but I can't pronounce it (I've always had issues with my Rs.. never grew out of it I guess).

I say Aurelia like Ow-rel-ee-uh. Like Marcus Aurelius, the Roman Emperor. I love either incarnation of the name (male or female).

Aurelia Violet is lovely, though Violet is not my personal style.

I say Aurelia as oar-REL-ee-uh. Basically like how Kes mentioned... like Marcus Aurelius.

I like both Aurora and Aurelia, but since Aurelia is more unique, I would personally choose that.

Actually quite like Aurelia Imogen.

I really like Aurelia. Aurora is pretty too, but I think it would be difficult for other children (and some adults) to pronounce.
I think either is a fine choice but wouldn't use them as a sib-set.

I prefer Aurelia as well, and think it pairs best with Violet. Very pretty and still unique.

I like Aurora Violet best. I pronouce Aurelia as aw-rel-ee-ah. I have a cousin named Aurora and the smaller cousins called her rowrow as a nn when they were little. As they got older they could pronouce it a-roar-a

They are both very pretty names! I pronounce Aurelia oar-rey-lee-uh.

I really prefer Aurora over Aurelia. I think they would both be a little tricky for other kids etc. to pronounce, the Aurora I know goes by Rory, which I really like!

I also LOVE Violet! I like Aurora Violet a lot. Imogen is nms.
