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.  original.gif

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.

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 think they're fine too.

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.
