So my husband and I decided on Fiona Kate for our second little girl, due in January. Well now we are getting negative feedback from family that's causing us to reconsider. What does everything think? Fiona Kate Leslie. SIL's name is Phoebe Kate, and we were using Kate to honor her, but not MIL says that Fiona sounds too much like Phoebe. My mom just "hates" the name. Here are some other names that we like right now:

Charlotte (Charley) Rae
Vivian (Vivi) Louise
Zoe Louise
Stella Jayne
Rosalie (Rosie) Jayne

What's everyone's favorite? Big sister's name is Lillian (Lilly) Kristine. Also wondering if Rosie would be too silly, being that both girls would have flower names?

Thank you so much for your help!

Stick with what you love best! I don't feel like Fiona and Phoebe are two close for an aunt and a neice.
It's hard for some people to love a name before they meet the person. Their opinion will change once they meet her and see just how much she is a Fiona.

I don't think Fiona and Phoebe are too much alike. Also, I really think you should choose a name that you and your husband love, and if Fiona is what you like, then screw them. LOL. Fiona is a pretty name and not overused, so that's a definite plus.

I love Fiona and definitely don't think those two names are too close. I also love Rosalie from your list.

I think Fiona Kate is really cute, and it's really not that close to Phoebe except for the "fee" sound at the beginning. If you like it best, you like it.
