    ok so im due a little girl at the beginning of september and im really struggling with names for her! i love so many names it sucks trying to choose lol. anyway, ive found a name i really like which is Skylah...

    problem is, my 5 year old niece is called Skye! my family arent big on using family names or anything so what im wondering is whether Skylah is too similar to Skye? or could i get away with using it by double barrelling it or something? me and my sister dont get on at all so i dont want to give her the satisfaction of saying "ooh you copied my daughters name!" or whatever, because she's pathetic like that lol. just wanted your opinions :) thanks

    xx

    If i were you i wouldn't be able to give my child such a similar first name to someone i knew, let alone my niece. :shrug: thats just me? How about using it as your daughters middle name?

    Skylah is really close to Skye even with a middle name IMO

    If you love it I don't think it matters, but I agree with WSS bout using it as a middle name if you're unsure. They'll probably like the fact that their names are similar as they grow up and I'm sure your sister will get over it.

    It's totally up to you. It really depends on your family and situation. For example, my mom and her brother both have children with the same name. So I have a cousin and a brother both named Brain. & they never really cared. Maybe you should just ask your sister how she would feel about? Then you wouldn't have to wonder. If she would be really upset about it you could use it for a middle name and think of a new first name... Or maybe she won't mind. You never know. :shrug:
    Let us know what you decide! It's completely up to you :thumbup: Good luck!
