Just wanting wider opinion on this one. Dh's brother and wife have last week just given birth to an Isabella.
A name that DH and I have always considered is Eliza. We are now thinking that the z sound makes them too similar. The meanings of the name are also identical.
For cousins, do you think Isabella and Eliza at too similar? I would definitely not do it of siblings but I'm curious about whether the fact they are cousins makes it different in your opinion.
Many thanks in advance!

Do these names sound too similar?

Nope I think it's fine! Saying them together they go really nicely together, rather than sounding too close :-)

I love your name choice! I'd stick with it. Maybe not if their daughter was Elise but Isabella is different enough for me.

Go for it. I don't think they are similar at all.

I know 2 sisters named Isabel and Eliza. I've never thought they were similar sounding (unlike 2 other sister I know named Ella and Emma, they are two gorgeous names, but too similar IMO).

I don't think so. You'll probably get some kind of cute Izzy and Lizzy comments now and then, but that's ok I think! Eliza is a beautiful name and was in my top 3 if I had a girl :-)
