Not married or in a relationship, but I have to say my maiden name rules out almost zero names I like.
It starts with K and ends in -on, 2 syllables. My first name also starts with K, and ends with -in, 2 syllables. So needless to say having an -en/-on/-in ending surname and first name doesn't really bother me, flow-wise. I've always liked my name and gotten many compliments on it, and BONUS: my middle name is 2 syllables and ends in -een. Take that, 2-2-2 pattern naysayers
The only names it rules out, for me, are:
- K names - None of which I like anyway, and because I wouldn't want it to "match" my name and I got sick of "are your initials KKK"
- Anything has a strong Ken- or Can- sound in it (Kenneth, Kennedy, Kent, Mackenzie, Canyon, Candace, Breccan, et c.), again, none of which I like.
And I guess sometimes it rules out names from other cultures, because it's very Irish/Scottish and to me it would just seem odd to have a little Lorenzo K---on or Dimitri K---on running around. I'm sort of digging Bodhi and Djuna though, so I might be willing to sway a little on that one. I sound like a total hipster right now."whatever our souls are made of,
his and mine are the same"

My last name is Townsend which rules out pretty much all "T" names. ( Tessa, Tallulah, Tyler, Thomas) Which is funny cause before I got married I was SS, same with my dad and sister, so I guess it determines on the name. Theo is the only T name I believe sounds good. As well as almost any "son" names. (Emerson, Grayson, Hudson, Mason) but who knows I still might use one of them one day!Lily Elizabeth 08/08/08-Chase Steven 01/28/10-Zack Francis 12/21/12-Drew Daniel 07/06/14

I don't like my last name (which is Thomas) so as of now I plan on taking my future husband's last name unless it's something really ridiculous. Not even ashamed to admit it.“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”
