    Graeme...with our last name?

    Hello All,
    Need some input.... so we like the name Graeme for our next son but am wondering if it may be too rhyme-y with our last name. Our last name rhymes with Hammer. We pronounce Graeme with more of a long A sound but know that many will say Graeme with a short A. So... Graeme Hammer....too rhyme-y or ok.
    Thanks,
    Shelby

    IMO, if you're going to pronounce it "gray-um", it's totally fine. The "gram" pronunciation (as in milligram, kilogram, etc.) would be too rhyme-y.

    This.
    I say gray-um though, so I don't find it's too repetitive in sounds.

    I pronounce it "Gram", so for me it is too rhymy. It's also worth thinking about how people in your local area will pronounce it...

    No it's not rhyme-y at all. Are you considering Grae/Gray as a nn? It might help people to pronounce Graeme correctly if they associate it with 'gray'
