Hello,

I am struggling with Heather and Marylin, since they both have stress on first syllable.

Many thanks,

Marko.

But Heather and Marilyn don't have the same number of syllables. So there should be no confusion there at all. Marilyn and Susanna do have the same number of syllables, but in Susanna the stress is on syllable 2. Hope this helps a little.
