    Question Is Frederick Wright a mouthful?

    Self-explanatory really, but do you think Frederick Wright is a mouthful to say. Unsure about the repeated 'r' sound. If we used it, it's likely he'd be called Freddie sometimes too, but I'm not sure.

    P.S. I'm English, so I don't know if maybe others might say it differently...

    I don't think so at all. I think it's a darling name for a boy!

    While I don't mind the name Frederick, I don't like the two r's in the combo either. I've heard worse but it's not pleasing to my ear. Freddie Wright is fine but the full name doesn't flow. I noticed that there is also a shared "er/ur" in Arthur and Frederick. Personally, I would use it in the middle spot. We don't use our mn's very much in real life. However, Arthur and Frederick have a majestic quality and if you love Frederick more than any other name then it might be the one for you. I have a tendency to over-analyze.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I don't think it's too much. I'm American, if that matters. It sounds sophisticated and masculine, and I don't have any issues with the recurring r sound.
