Yes vs. No

Are Esmé and Maysen too close for cousins, since they both have a strong May sound? I am pregnant with a baby girl and she will be born in June. I also have a 2 year old niece that lives with us named Maysen. I have pretty much taken care of her her whole life, with help from my parents. My sister never stepped up to take of her and is in and out of rehab. I love the name Esmé for my daughter, but given that Maysen (who we call May/Maysie) is with me the majority of the time, I think they might be too similar. Am I overthinking this or are they too close for two girls who will be raised pretty much as sisters?

Genie's Mailbag

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.
