    Unhappy rhyming first and last name..

    So, i've recently fallen in love with the name Rachel, and I really want to use it for my future daughter. It works great with my sibset of classic names and it is a family name of both mine and my husbands family. The only problem is that our last name also starts with the R sound and ends with the Ell sound. Is it too close? I dont want to have an Amelia Bedelia situation on my hands but I really love this name too much to give it up..

    like Rachel-Mae so on Paper the rhymyness isn't as obvious

    It depends on what your last name is, honestly.

    First and last names that start with the same letter should be avoided--especially if the letters are consonants w/the same sound in both names, and most especially if the first name is as short as Rachel. Please don't do to your child what my parents did to me--RR
