  • It's not a combination I would choose.

  • Ah, I like both names, but I wouldn't recommend names that even come close to rhyming. It's ultimately your call though.

  • Ian: Popular Scottish form of John.

    Liam: Short form of Uilliam, the Irish Cognate of William.

    Sounds too close to the same thing for me.
