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"

It's our first child, and she's a girl. Our last name is Watson. I was going for Suzanna Adelle for a while, but grew not to like it. I've also liked the names Skyler Dean and Stormy Kay in the past, but decided against them. Is there any way you can help?
Baby Name Genie:
With names like Skyler and Stormy, I’m seeing a definite meteorological theme here. Not to rain on your parade, but the forecast shows a different name for your daughter. Name her Sadie Joy for a baby girl with a sunny disposition.
