    Harrison Harper...too much?

    I adore the name Harrison, but our last name is Harper. I am concerned that Harrison Harper is just too much. What do you think?

    Hopefully, the middle name isn't Hugh. If you don't mind alliteration, you could pull it off. I'd also avoid a middle name that could also be a surname or starts with a vowel (no HAH, HEH, etc).

    Independent of one another, Harrison and Harper are fantastic names. But Harrison Harper (or the potential Harry Harper), is too much, in my mind.

    I have alliterative initials and I still can't figure out what my parents were thinking. Please don't make your kid sound like a cartoon character! Not fun.

    You might consider Ariston as an alternative. It's a Greek name, common in ancient times (shared by a ruler of Sparta and a poet/scholar, among others). Less common and sounds a bit swankier than Harrison.

    I like it, actually. The "Har-" at the beginning of Harrison and Harper sound different, and that helps.
