    Should a name ever rhyme with the name of one of the parents?

    While my wife and I have been coming up with names I found myself liking a boy's name that rhymes with my first name. The initial consonant sounds quite different, but the rest of it is the same. I'd never name a child for myself (with the first name anyway) because it seems almost immodest to me, but I like this name. What would you do?

    It would help if we knew the name to see how close it is to your name.

    I think it would get confusing in daily life. You'd always be mishearing one name for the other...
