    Yeah, I think the two names have a problem of blending into each other. August Storey can end up sounding like "August Tory." Since they're both words, the combination makes August sound like an adjective describing the noun "story," so like a story told in the month of August. I would try to avoid pairing another word name with August. I like each name on their own, I'm just not sure on the combination.

    I agree with previous posters who mentioned the back-to-back 'st' problem. I would avoid word names with August unless the imagery works really well.
