    Rhys or King

    These are my two boy combinations: James Alaric Matthew and Henry Elijah King

    King and Matthew are both honor names for my step-grandmother. I've recently decided to use Rhys to honor my maternal grandmother. I'm now thinking of swapping King out and using Rhys, but I'm not sure about the flow of it.

    Both are strong, handsome combos. I chose Henry Elijah King only because I feel the flow works just a bit better. Elijah Rhys jumbles up a bit and gets a little tongue twisty for me. My tongue does not get as tied up with Henry Rhys Elijah.

    Thanks lovemysweeties! It does seem a bit tongue twisty to me too. I'm not sure about 'Ry' and 'Rhy' back to back because it's the same sound.


    Could the rest of you guys who voted tell me why you chose which combo please? It'd help a lot.

    Rhys. King is way too over the top, even as a middle name.
