Namechanged to check my top boys choice.
I love Henry but our surname is
H* owden.
I think it's a good strong name Dh worried it sounds too much.
Honest thoughts please.

If you live in an area where people habitually drop their aitches I wouldn't.

'enry 'owden.

I'm not keen on alliteration as a general rule but actually I agree with you that name sounds really good!

Alliterative names are fine.

I have a girl with an alliterative name, and another who has chosen a nickname which makes her name alliterative.

I think calling your son Howard might be a bit much, perhaps. wink

Yes sanity Howard would be too much also like Heidi but altogether sounds like hi-de-hi smile

I love them and if I had a better surname, absolutely would.

I think sometimes they can sound cartoonish but I'm hoping my choice doesn't

I love them. I had one until I got married and I miss my alliterative name now! For me, they sound strong and complete...if that makes sense?! I'd do it.

My girl has an alliterative name. Everyone always gives us compliments smile

I like it. I know a boy who has an H H name and I think it sounds strong.

Testingthename Sat 20-Jun-15 09:58:18

I just need Dh to agree now I think it's fab

I like alliterative names - they just have something about them that makes them memorable and interesting.
