We really like a certain first name and it's practically the only one we agree on. The only thing is how it goes with our last name. Think Clarice Clarke- not those names, but similar in that the first two letters are the same and pronounced the same way.
I know that some really like names that alliterate and some don't, but what do you of names where the match is quite strong like this?
I personally wouldn't. Like you say some alliteration doesn't sound too bad - I know of a Jackie Jones for example which you can get away with (even though I wouldn't even go for that as I don't like alliteration at all) but Clarice Clarke is way too similar for me.
Both my son's "sort of" alliterate - think similar to Chris McKendrick, I like it obviously as we've done it twice
Interestingly, at school there is one other child with my eldest's name - he is also a McK.. and 2 others with my youngest's name and they are a McK.. and a MacK... so they have gone for the same sound so we are not alone.
I think go for it, I know plenty of people with alliteration names I'm trying to think of actors with double letters but my mind's gone blank. ..Sylvester Stallone! Trying to think of someone cooler [grim]
I don't much like alliteration in names anyway but the first two letters in first name and surname would be the same? I think that's far too much, sorry. It'll sound like something from a children's book.
Ooo, some positive, some negative.... I don't want to out myself, but the first name is two syllables, the second is one and the vowel sound is different. It's the beginning consonent sound that's the same, if that makes sense.
Oh, why can't DH just love all the other names I like and then we wouldn't have this issue. Might have to leave him
I ruled out my favourite boys name because I was worried an alliterative name would sound silly, but then realised that my dad's name is alliterative and I've never thought it sounded strange at all. I've also got a friend with a nice alliterative name, and I like Lauren Laverne's name!
