Hi, Having another girl and wondering if Amelie is too similar in sound to Chelsea?Both have that 'ee' ending sound...Thanks!

Possibly not but for me they are.
For my own kids I didn't want a name that started with the same letter or ended with the same letter/sound though so it might be just me.

Since they have different syllable counts and different first initials I think it's okay.
I think Chelsea and Amelie or Chelsea and Emily (yes I'm just wedging that in there because I like Emily more) sound fine together. I'd avoid Elsie or Cicely though.

They're not too similar for me. I think they are actually nice together.

OP I think they work well together are not too similar and are both pretty names.

They sound fine to me but all my girls names sound similar at the end so I may not be the best person to ask.

I think they are fine. I have twins who both have a "lee" sound at the end of their names. But the first part of their names are completely different.

I actually think 2 'EE' endings work well for sisters. But for pernickety me these two names are too different style-wise. However, since Amelie has been changed for all time by the anglophonic world it's probably not a problem.
