There is a book called the Baby Name Wizard that does that, adn ther is a website by the same woman, i think you might be able to do it on there. i agree with Moondog though - i think names dont really have to match, but i think peoples taste means that they usuall sound good together as i suppose people like a style (so probably not a fan of Chelsea and Dorothea at the same time). Did that make any sense
Fillyjonk that might be ok for you but having grown up hating my name I wanted all 3 of my girls to have similar styles of names with various shortenings they could choose from if they wanted to when they're older
I think its all personal opinion and circumstance not all about making them match when written lined up in a neat order on the personalised kitchen calander
This discussion is just semantics - when I said 'match' I meant that the kind of names I like and have chosen for my children are likely to be of the same type, same taste. It just depends on how you interpret the word 'match', Fillyjonk. The kind of names I like tend to be old English, traditional but not too popular as a rule - that's just my taste, personal, cultural and familial influences.
Therefore, I thought one of these generator thingies might come up with a name that is also old English, traditional and not too popular - which is easier than trawling through millions of names. And it's fun. Whether it 'matches' or not depends on what you think matches. I might think Jason and Josephine match, you might think that only name to match Jason is Kylie... IYSWIM. The definition of match in this case is as personal as your taste in names.
fillyjonk, sorry I missed your post - to me matchingdoesn't mean they have to 'go' BUT in our case DD1 and DD2 have longer more traditional names but we use a shortening everyday so when we had DD3 the name we wanted to use is more commonly used for boys and not traditional/able to be shortened iyswim so we used a more traditional/long name first and her used name as her first middle name - does that make sense?
she's known as the name we wanted to use but on her forms etc she has a traditional girls names with the options of short versions for her to choose from later on - it is in a similar style to DD1 and DD2 so they all have the same they all have 2 middle names too
