My mother did this with my sister, and hated it so much she actually changed her mind and my sister's first name when she was about 2 years old... Her initials were MMM, Madison Merriweather M-(one syllable). I understand why she did it, but I actually like the way it rolls off the tongue. I'm strongly considering Merriweather/Merryweather as either a first or a middle for my future kiddos.
Point is, I think it's all in the name and how similar they sound otherwise. Especially if they're different amounts of syllables, I'm not sure I would even notice it upon being introduced. Like Megan Mullaly, the actress... would never have even registered with me, except jess044's post upthread got me thinking about Megan M's.TTC #1Io BeverlyArthur Merryweather or March DavidOther names I love: Jonquil, Ardal, Linus, Felix, Araminta, Hedda, Wildflower...

It is not something that I will do when naming my children, but it can work in some instances. I think it really depends on the different vowel and consonant sounds in the names and also how many syllables are in each name.♥19 year old name lover♥

Another voice to say it depends on the names and letters in question. Amy Adams (the actress) yes, very sweet. Lindsay Lohan (the infamous actress), yes, that works too. Travis Tritt (a country singer), no, absolutely not. I don't know if it's the T's or the dissimilar syllable count, but it sets my teeth on edge.

My son's name's begin with the same letter, with a 2-3 count. Honestly, we get compliments on it all the time, but I don't think it works in all instances, much as pps have said.
