    Syllable count rule?

    Is there a general rule for which syllable count is best? The 3-1-2 combo is what I am considering but I was wondering if there is a rule about this.

    As far as I'm concerned there's no rule that you have to follow. There's a pattern that's more pleasing to some (I think the 3-1-2 that you mentioned) but I don't think that it's a rule.

    Personally, I like 2-3-1 names best, but there are definitely no rules! I think the stress of the syllables is far more important than syllable count.

    Personally for me it really depends on each individual name when combined with each other. Call out the combos (surname included) out-loud several times, have others do the same.

    Sophie Jane Magnolia | Grace Margaret Birdie "Birdie" | Anneline Elizabeth Fable

    What should I do if I have three-syllable last name?
