I love the name Lianna but do you think its too close to Alaina (we call her Lainey about 75% of the time) ? What about Lydia...is that too close too? Thanks ladies!

Lianna may be too close, would you be calling her something else as a nn? I dont think Lydia is too similar, though. I think Alaina and Lydia is cute.

Lianna is pretty close. Lydia is similar, but not too close at all.

Lianna is pretty close to Alaina, and so is Lianna and Lainey. I don't think Lydia is though, Lydia and Alaina would make a great sibset.

Lianna and Lainey kinda sound like a tongue twister to me. Lainey and Lydia are close, but not too bad. For some reason, it's hard for me to say though. I would say maybe Lainey and something like Laurel would be easier to say together.

I agree with Melissa, Lydia and Lainey don't sound too bad together but something like Loren and Laurel would sound a bit better with Lainey

I don't think it's necessarily a problem if they sound similar. I mean they are siblings! I like both options, Lianna or Lydia.

Alaina and Lianna are almost anagrams of each other. Although I love both names, I probably wouldn't choose them as a sibset. Lydia is NMS, but it would go better with your daughter's name.

I think Lianna is too close to Alaina, but I don't think Lydia is. Although its similar to Lainey, its not too close that you couldn't use it.
