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?

I don’t think they sound too close together, if you want to name your daughter Esme, go ahead! It’s a beautiful name and they actually go quite well together. Good luck! :)

I would have voted no, meaning they’re not too close, but since you call Maysen May or Maysie, I do think it’s a bit close - especially May.
