Sibling names too similar?!
My daughter Lillian (goes by Lilly) and we are considering Ian for a brother name. is it too close to Lillian or does it not matter since everyone calls her Lilly? My husband and I don’t think it really matters since the emphasis in each name is different (if someone were to say them right after each other). For example the emphasis in Lillian is on the “LI“sound and the rest of the name just rolls quickly after, and the emphasis on Ian is the “EE” sound at the beginning. And also if you say “Ian and Lilly” there’s no issue. What do you all think?
