Do you think cousins named Abby and Addie are too similiar?
Just nicknames...neither would be their real names.
I don't think they're too close. I only saw my cousins once or twice a year though, and DS will be the same. If you see them weekly it MIGHT change my mind.
...though honestly, with those two names, they're both going to get used to sharing names with others fast. So having a similar name to their cousin probably won't be a big deal.
When you have a large family (like I do) you can't let this stop you from the name you love. I have a first cousin with the same name as me. We just rely on the use of MN's now, and when we were much younger we relied on "Big Em" and "Little Em" (thank goodness I was the "little" HA!)
If you love the name, it won't ever be a problem, everyone will learn how to deal.

Not for cousins! We are super bummed, our favorite boy name was Jack & my SIL had her first in August....his name is Jack! I told my hubbers I'd still love to use the name because we don't see them that often. So we are thinking of doing Jax now instead?!?! On that side though there's Jack, Jude, Jase... Noah & Ayla! To throw another "J" name in there might be too much, but again we don't see them that often!
