Asher & Isla

My daughter’s name is [name]Isla[/name]. I am expecting a boy early next year and really struggling to come up with names that I like (let alone ones that my husband agrees on). One we have agreed on is [name]Asher[/name]. Looking for opinions on whether it is too similar to [name]Isla[/name] or do they work OK together?

I love [name]Isla[/name]! :slight_smile: I think that [name]Asher[/name] is a great name, and I personally don’t think it’s too similar to [name]Isla[/name]. Aside from having two syllables and beginning with a vowel like [name]Isla[/name], I don’t hear any of [name]Isla[/name]'s sounds in [name]Asher[/name] (no long I, no L, and no “uh” sound). (I may be missing something, but I’ve said the names together over and over, and so far, I haven’t become tongue tied or gotten them confused.) :slight_smile:

I think that [name]Asher[/name] is very handsome!

Some more names I can see with [name]Isla[/name]:


(I included some Scottish names, like [name]Isla[/name].) :slight_smile:

Good luck! :slight_smile:

I think [name]Asher[/name] and [name]Isla[/name] are too similar to be a sibset but [name]Ashton[/name] and [name]Isla[/name] work really well together.

I agree with [name]Jill[/name]. I don’t think they’re too close. And I absolutley [name]LOVE[/name] both names!!

written they look too similar but out load they sound fine.
