I know siblings called Ruby and Reuben. Also Danny and Andy. Nadia and Diana? Passable. On the whole I'd avoid naming your children in sets like the best china.
Conversely, it's unfair to call one Gabriella Isabella Amber Rose and the other Sue. But two sisters called Isabella and Gabriella invites the question: And where is Salmonella?
Made-up names are in but nobody remembers them so Dlaybard and Jogaryll are out.
Biblical names? Solid but don't inflict Job or Jezebel.
Anything from nature is acceptable (well not grub or sap, obviously).
