Too Close? vs. Yes, use Addison vs. No, "Ally" is fine

Hi! We have a daughter named Alexandra Rose whom we call Lexie. I very much want to name our second daughter Allyson Danielle, to be called Ally. Are Ally and Lexie okay as a sibling pair? My husband thinks people might be confused, since Ally is also a common nickname for Alexandra. Our other favorite name, tied with Allyson, is Addison; however, we dislike the nickname "Addie", so in the case that we choose this name, she won’t have a NN, she will just be Addison. WDYT?
Which baby name is best?
 Too Close?
 Yes, Use Addison
 No, "ally"

Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
