    Too much alliteration?

    I have loved the name Emrys for years and years now. I've pretty much ruled it out as my SO's last name is Ellis, however he has recently brought the name up and says that it actually sounds pretty good to him. I would love to use the name Emrys but I think it's just too much with the last name. So what are your thoughts on Emrys Ellis?

    Honestly I do agree that it's a bit much as a fn with your last name though I do like the name Emrys. Perhaps as a mn?

    It's too similar.

    - both names are 2 syllables, with the accent on the first
    - both names start with the same vowel
    - both names end with the same vowel-consonant combo ("iss")

    E names are fine-- like, Edward Ellis-- but these are way too close.

    Ha ha that's what I thought too. He's trying to convince me to use it on the basis that it sounds like a comic book characters name. Sigh.
