    Names that start with the same letter first and last

    Hi Berries. I think this is a question that many people differ, but what is your personal opinion on names that have the same initials first and last? For example Megan Miller or Emma Edwards.

    Disappointing with vowels, but wrong w/consonants. My parents did it to me (RR)...not sure I'll ever forgive them, but I use my middle initial to break things up a bit.

    I think it depends on the names. Megan Miller and Emma Edwards sound fine. John Johnson, Tyler Taylor, Miles Miller, etc. don't. My sister-in-law is Megan Mar-(three syllables) and it sounds just fine.

    Alliteration usually annoys me, so i would definitely avoid it with my kids. One of my sisters has the same initial for all her names and hates it, so she's been very sure to avoid alliteration with her kids; my other sister *loves* alliteration and had specifically chosen alternative names for her future kids
    I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.

    My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.

    Yes, this.

    But I generally like double letter names. I like how J K Rowling really milked it in Harry Potter: Minerva McGonagall, Severus Snape, Filius Flitwick, Dudley Dursley, Luna Lovegood, Pansy Parkinson... and they're rather fantastic Even with more 'normal' names it makes them a little more sing-song and memorable. It's cool
