The name Faye has been going around in my head recently, and so far has been a strong contender if this baba is a little girl.......however my brothers DD, who is almost 1 year old is called Freya. We are very close and would see each other often, so now I'm thinking that maybe the 2 names are too similar for cousins that would spend a lot of time together???
What do you think????
we called ds2 Ian and it didn't dawn on us that hubbys brother had a son Cian which is very similar- don't think it makes any difference to anyone tbh , just difficult for poor Granny. we just loved the name and went with it
Sorry - I voted yes without reading your post properly. I presumed they were siblings.
For cousins you can call them what you want, sure they might see each other a lot now, but realistically they will live in different houses, go to different schools, have different friends.
Pick whatever name you like, Faye is a beautiful name. I wouldnt worry that its close to your brothers childs. once its not the same name who cares...and honestly even if it wasnt the same name I wouldnt really care!
I don't think it is too similar. Both are lovely names. Good choice. I am really struggling with names right now
I voted yes but I thought it was for 2 sisters. It's totally ok for niece!!
Best of luck!
My two cousins (brother and sister) have two girls called Hannah and Anna.
Not at all I think they are both fab names and not too similar at all Faye and Sophie is lovely too
Thanks all!! The vote is quite close though, and I'm still undecided!!
Still another few weeks to decide though!!!
They are too similar for sisters but for cousins I would not worry too much. They probably don't have the same surname if they ended up in the same class at school anyhow.
i also voted before i read the post and assumed it was for sisters. wouldnt bother me for cousins tho.
