I don't think they are too close AT ALL! Go for it Mama!
All through my 2nd pregnancy I called my daughter AJ thinking it would make her a good nickname (Akaydia Jaylee)... I have never once called her that from the time I saw her face lol, it just didn't fit... she's been Kia and Kaydia.

Harper

Stella

Piper

I don't mind Amelia and Lia as cousins. I like both Amelia and Hazel. In deciding between these two, there is the issue of whether or not you want two of your children sharing a first initial. I don't mind repeating initials, sometimes, but if you need a way of eliminating, it can help. Otherwise, you might like:
Amelie (ah-malee)
Ave (ah-VAY)
Bianca
Carys
Celeste
Clara
Delta
Greta
Isadora
Ivy
Juliet
Laurel
Nora
Phoebe (repeating initial, but I like it with your crew).
Sarai
Serena
Tatum
Willa
Zara

hello!! first of all, i love your boys names-porter is a great name and hudson is nice too. congrats on joining the PINK team-lol. i do like both the names you posted but amelia is starting to gain popularity since its so close to emily. the whole lia and amelia thing might not even be a thing cuz you might call her aj or amy or just amelia(like my lil niece barbara jean-she goes by barbara not barbie or babs or anything). i really like hazel-its unique, its different, but its still classic. i can understand the hesitiation about your boys not having family names, but its different cuz shes a girl. (barbara jean has 3 brothers-none of them have family names-but barbara is named completely after her grandma) the masin thing is-if you love a name, go for it...a few more suggestions:
-clementine
-violet
-charlotte
-adelaide
-penelope
-harlow
-audrey
-harmony

good luck!!!

Hmmm, I guess I think Amelia and Lia aren't too similar to use for cousins as long as Amelia doesn't get nn Mia.

By the way, Amelia doesn't sound close to Lia.
