Question Is the name 'Holden' too similar to 'Hayden'?

I am thinking Holden is my favorite boy name (good thing I am almost 37 weeks pregnant and still don't have a name!) But my oldest son's name is Hayden. Do you think they sound too matchy?

I think they are too similar, you'll mix up their names anyway so maybe it would help to have them not so "matchy"

Love the name but would be too close for me to use.

I say if you love it, use it. I have 2 nephews (brothers, no other siblings) named "Jack" and "Jake".

Too alike, IMO.

My youngest DD is Vera. I am loving the name Viola this time, but yeah, can't do it since it's too close to Vera.

I think they are cute names. Do you dislike them matchy? I have a Kyle & a Kole. Probably annoying to some but I nearly died having them so I can name them as the hubs & I choose.
