Both names are lovely but I do think they’re a little too close. Something like Elsa would be nice and just different enough to make it less confusing.

I agree they sound too similar.

Yeah, I would say too close as well.

I would go with Ellie instead as having both short names ending in ’a’ is a bit too rhymey.

Not too bad but I’d prefer Gemma and Bella together.

They do sound similar, but I don’t think that’s a reason to not use a name you like. I think them sounding alike is better than sounding like they’re from different sides of the world.
