Re: Is the name 'Holden' too similar to 'Hayden'?

Yes they are similar but I don't see that should be a problem, but we're thinking if we have a girl we're naming her Raelynn and we already have a DD named Ryleigh.

I think they go fine together and I'm really not a matchy name person mostly because I was raised in a family that sounds like this Kevin ( my dad) kyle Kordell kody kolton and kaale are my brothers and I'm Kara. So my kids won't have any of the same initials! Oh and all of our middle names start with R! But I like Hayden and Holden... Both very cute names!

Yes, they're similar, but my dd and my baby that I'm pregnant with will be similar as well. I'd rather not do it, but my dh really likes the new baby's name and since I named my almost 5 y/o dd, I'm letting him have it.

i wouldn't do it, i think they are too similar. i'm not into names that match too much. even on twins.

I think it's fine, but personally I couldn't. I'm worried that Keira and Cambria are too matchy for me lol
but I have a friend who named her sons Hunter and Hudson and I think it works for them

Too similar for my taste, but if you like it go for it. I know siblings (not twins) named Ellie and Eli, and someone with an Emma is about to have an Amelia.

It would be too close for me as well. there are a couple names I really like but are too close to my DD's name so I'm looking for something else!
