Hi would you use a first name that starts with the same letter as your surname? I love the name Heidi but babies surname is H as well not sure if that bothers me or not

Yes, I would. I quite like alliteration with names.

BarneyRumbleton Mon 24-Apr-17 22:06:37

Yes, I like alliterative names too.

BarryKwipkee Mon 24-Apr-17 22:06:49

I did. It sounds good!

I have an HH in our family - tried in vain to find a middle name starting with R so that any monogrammed items would be HRH! smile

I wouldn't personally, it's not my style, But lots of people do and it sounds fine. Go for it if you think they sound good together.

A relative is AA and it sounds nice and normal.
Tbh as I teacher, I seem to remember alliterative names better than others.

We use initials when referencing etc in work and now that I think of it there are lots of doubles! Hadn't really thought about it before so I don't think it's a big deal.

Unless your surname is Hye it's fine.

I really like alliteration in the right combo. As long as the other sounds in your surname are different from those in Heidi I'd say go for it (ie. yes to something like Heidi Harrison but no to Heidi Hyde or Heidi High!)

One of my DDs names does this. The other uses a diminutive of her name which makes it do this.

I have never really noticed it being any kind of issue for them.

I agree that you need to find a lovely name that starts with R for a middle name. What about Roberta?

Yika Mon 24-Apr-17 22:25:04

Yes, no issue at all. Heidi is a cute name.

BarneyRumbleton Mon 24-Apr-17 22:54:29

As long as your surname isn't Hole I think you'll be fine!
Heidi's a lovely name.

I had alliterative initials before I got married, miss them now...
One of my DSs has alliterative initials and I personally think it sounds really well!

Heidi is a beautiful name, if we'd have had a girl it's a name I would have chosen smile

Heidi is lovely and I don't think the alliteration will be a problem.

This thread title made me think "Hmm, I don't know anyone with double initials". Took me far longer than it should have to remember that I have double initials hmm grin

LauraPalmersBodybag Mon 24-Apr-17 23:28:28

I have double initials - I love it!

sometimes it works really well, others.....not so much.
I love the name Heidi though!
