Which do you prefer? do you think these names go okay as a sibset or not? If not, which kinda names do you see with Brielle and then which kind do you see with Mattea? Examples??

Also how would you pronounce Mattea? Ma-TAY-uh? Or Ma-TEE-uh?

Which do you prefer? tough choice, I like both names...but Brielle wins out, though I prefer it as a nickname for Gabrielle

do you think these names go okay as a sibset or not? I think they'd make a cute sibset

Also how would you pronounce Mattea? Ma-TAY-uh? Or Ma-TEE-uh? I was prn Ma-TEE-uh for quite awhile but I believe the correct prn is Ma-TAY-uh

Mattea.

A Mattea sibset I would expect to include soft, feminine names for the girls and spunky masculine names for the boys.

A Brielle sibset I would expect to include other nicknames (Brielle was originally a nickname for Gabrielle), creative spellings, surnames as first names, and recent creations.

I prefer Brielle. As for the type of name, I see Brielle as a feminine, girly name. Mattea I see as a spunky, tomboy. I like the nn potential with Brielle better then Mattea as well. Elle or Bre sounds much better to me then Tea or Mattie. I could definitely see them as sisters. I don't think sibsets have to be all one style. I like it when they're mixed up a little, lends itself to a little originality! I pronounce it Mah-tay-uh.

Mattea. Muh-tay-uh. Nope. Mattea fits with Eliana, Sophia, and Alaina.
Brielle would fit with Nevaeh, Brinley, and Ashlyn.

Mattea! I pronounce it Ma-TAY-uh. Maybe you could go with Mattea Gabrielle or Mattea Brielle, so you use both names.
