    How bad is this naming faux-pas?

    I know a family that has mom Christina, dad Carl, daughters Chelsea, Chloe, and Camille, and then son...Zachary. His name feels so out of place to me. How noticeable/bad do you think it is or do you think it's just fine?

    Not the end of the world, but it does seem a little odd. I wonder if they ran out of C names that they loved or they just never noticed the theme in the first place.

    Zachary does stick out like a sore thumb, doesn't he? I think it's bad enough with the three older girls but it kind of gets rubbed in his face when the parents also have the same initial too. I find it hard to believe but... maybe they didn't love any "C" boys names.
    All the best,

    I don't think it's bad at all. Why use a C name when you don't love one? Personally speaking, I'd rather be the 'odd kid out' and have a name that starts with a different initial than my siblings and parents, than have my parents name me something they don't like.

    It doesn't bother me that much because Zachary has -ch- in the middle. The sound fits with his sisters too, but the C-C-C-C-C-Z theme is a bit off, but I'm not bothered by it at all.
