Think you've decided on a name? Check out where it ranks on the official list of the most popular baby names first.
If dc1 starts with A, can dc2 start with B, and at what point does it become silly?Just that really...!
It wouldn't even cross my mind, unless you went on to have another five children with alphabet consecutive letters!
I know a family who did this and got as far as g.I'd say it gets noticeable at about c. Silly ? I don't know. Silly would be sticking to the same letter like the duggars.
I'd say that if it's A and B people would be unlikely to notice but by C it would be daft.
My cousins children go A, B, C and D. I think it is slightly silly and a bit limiting (what if you get to child 3/4 and prefer names from the end of the alphabet to C/D names?)
I used to nanny for 4 children A,B,C and D. No one ever commented.
I doubt if I would even notice, and if I did I would just think it a neat coincidence and give it no further thought.
People might notice, but so what?
I might notice once it got to D or E, but I'd assume it was a coincidence.
I may notice if I were alert that day, but I see nothing wrong with it. Kind of a cute idea.AbbyBrianCarolDonnaEveFrankGeorgeHannahIsabellaJosephineKarenLawrenceMaryNoahOliverPeterQuentinRobertStephanieTanyaU- I am stuck.

A and B I would not even notice. Maybe by C and D I would.
I would notice by c or d but I think it's lovely, I certainly wouldn't comment negatively on it
My friend did this and I only noticed when other people started suggesting only names starting with D for her 4th child.
