Expecting bub no 2 in a couple of weeks. We already have an Aiden. We are thinking Owen but I am worried Owen and Aiden are too similar. Do you think they are too similar? Other option is Rory. Thanks!

I think they are ok, but Aiden and Rory is much better

I think too similar. And also prefer the combination of Aiden and Rory.

No I don’t think so. But I have an Aiden and a Logan which are also similar
Posted 15 February 2019 - 08:04 PM
Yep too similar for my liking!
Rory is a girls name to me but Gilmore Girls is one of my favs, so it’s influenced by that!

No I don't think they are to similar at all. Love Owen!

Aiden and Owen are perfectly compatible IMO.
Style fits and sounds are adequately divergent. Rory goes fine and is a fine name but for mine Owen is the better fit.

I think they are fine! Go with the name you like best - both Rory and Aiden are lovely names.

I think Aiden & Owen work fine together.
But I do prefer Rory and think that goes really well with Aiden.

I also think they go well together.
I like it when siblings have similar sounding names!

I think Aiden and Owen are okay but not great together. I much prefer Rory and much prefer it for Aiden's brother.

Borderline too similar IMO - doable just if you really want to - but not sure if I would
Logan and Aiden seem less similar and i would do that - I think the L start makes it more different than Owen and Aiden, both being vowel starts.
Rory is better IMO - similar style to Aiden but quite different sounding.
and very much a boys name to me - perhaps influenced by my AFL team having two top players called Rory.

Thanks everyone! Mands I don't mind Rohan but not enough to use it, Liam is another I am tossing around but have a cousin named that too so a bit unsure. Maybe I'll just wait until I meet bubs to decide.

Too similar for me, but I'm often in the minority of sibset matching.
Not a fan of Rory.

I'd probably avoid Liam if you can and find another name. What about Riley, Rhys, Vaughn, Brady, Connor, Sean, Corey, Finley, Grady, Troy, Casey, Quinn, Cormac, Duane, Fergus, Finbar, Fintan, Garrett, Gareth, Ivor, Murphy, Oscar, Patrick
