I personally would try to be a bit different, just because of my friend's experience.
My friend, Erin, was born a few months after her cousin Aaron. She hates her name and only uses her middle name, Marie. When we were younger, her mom tried so hard to get her to like her name... and I remember when Marie started to cry and said, "Mom, I hate my name! Why did you name me after Aaron?" She still feels like her mom should have picked a different name, but her mom always says that she liked Erin before her sister picked Aaron so she stubbornly felt the need to follow through with it.
Marie's grandmother agrees with her... she said it was always confusing when she shared stories about her grandchildren, so close in age with such similar names.
