Avenley & Everleigh/Everley

Ever has been in my top 5 for awhile and I've always pushed Everleigh/Everley aside because I think they are too close. Wdyt?

For my taste, yes. It is very close. Both are gorgeous names though, but I think Avenley will be seen as less "trendy" (and therefore potentially dated) than Everleigh.

They're too close for my liking. They are both pretty names though!

I think they are too close, but both pretty names! I actually like Ever on its own better then Everly.

Yes, I think they are definitely too close because of the same trendy leigh/ley ending and the vowel beginning.

I agree, too close. I love Avenley and Ever together though! Everly reminds me of "Beverly" I think.

Waaaay too close to me. I think Avenley and Ever would go nicely together, plus I much prefer Ever to both Everleigh or Everly.

Yes, I think they're too close for sister names. I know how you feel. I had the same dilemma with Max and Jack.

I agree that they're too close, but think Avenley and Ever sound good together.

Phoebe was almost named Scarlett...but I already have a Scott so I decided not to use it. I loved how it ended in TT though like Wyatt and Scott do! I was so tempted but I'm glad I didn't use it, it really would've bugged me how similar they sound!
