    what are your thoughts on name alliteration?

    Hi berries, I'm back asking for yet more advice! 3 weeks till due date and still no definitive name for either sex!
    I'm currently mulling over Cora/Coral/Coralie- my preference is Coralie but our surname is Carter, I actually like the alliteration of Coralie Carter but my mil immediately dismissed it as being ridiculous! I don't really put much weight behind her opinion ( neither does my husband!) But I just wondered if anyone else agreed with her?!
    General opinion of the names also appreciated!
    Other children are Eloise, Jude and iris
    Thank you! Xx

    I think Coralie Carter sounds fine. I'm loving your other children's names!!

    Whichever variation Cora/Coral/Coralie you decide to use they are all lovely.

    I think alliteration can sound nice. my dd first and middle have alliteration and it works. I also think Coralie Carter sounds nice and Coralie is pretty.

    I like alliteration but I have two rules: different number of syllables and not beginning AND ending with the same letter. My test is basically Peter Parker. To me, this is not a good flow and it ends up sounding like the comic book character he is. Coralie Carter, on the other hand, sounds lovely! (Even Cora Carter isn't as nice imo because they both have 2 syllables). I think Coralie fits nicely with Eloise, Jude and Iris too

    These were my thoughts as well. It's fine with Coralie but not Cora or Coral. Coral Carter really sounds like a cartoon mermaid.
