    Quinn with K last name?

    My husband and I both like the name Quinn but our last name starts with a K (2 syllables). I'm trying to figure out if Quinn K... is too alliterative. What do people think? Thanks!

    I think it would be fine! I really like the name Quinn!

    Sorry for any random spellings. I'm probably on my nook!

    I think to some extent it depends on the name, but I'm trying it out with the K 2-syllable last names of friends that I can think of, and it's usually fine. I think if there's a W sound in the K name or the K name also ends in N, it's harder, but otherwise it's OK. Quinn is a nice name!

    It will be alliterative, but that's not necessarily a bad thing! It can actually sound really nice depending on the names.

    I think it's probably fine, but like PP said it may depend on the actual name. A Kw- sound at the beginning would sound alliterative, and an -n sound at the end would sound rhyme-y. Other than those 2 things, I can't think of any other reason why it wouldn't work.
