    Is Rory hard to say?

    I've had the name Rory on the brain today and it's quickly growing on me. But I worry about people having trouble saying it/getting tongue tied. Is it too hard to pronounce for non name nerds?

    Also, is it okay to use another R name? We are only having 2 children so I don't have to worry about starting a pattern, but would it be cheesy if both their names started with an R?

    Rory and Rowan are waayyy too similar for me. That sounds like a cheesy twin combo in my mind. Rory does not beat out your other options.

    Rowan and Rory sound like really matchy twin names. Not only are the sounds similar, but etymologically they're both tied to the color red.

    Rory is kind of hard to say, but not to the point where it'd be a burden. Rory would be a nightmare for a kid with a speech impediment though.

    Yes, it's easy to fumble over your words when saying.
    If you were yelling Rory across a room it could be hard to say or easy to mix up with another child if they're alike.
