    First and last name with same first letter. Thoughts?

    My last name starts with an A and a couple of my fave first names start with an A. What are your thoughts on this?

    In general, ends-in-A names don't work that great with vowel start names. Think Louisa Alcott versus Louisa May Alcott. Or, Amelia Adams. You have to have a little break inhale between the names, compared to something like Emily Adams or Louise Alcott. BUT, starts with A? You should be fine! It's a matter of personal preference about alliteration! Abigail Adams? Great. Autumn Abrams? Fine. Good luck!

    I usually have no issue with first names and surnames starting with the same letter. There are times that the names sound too similar due to other similarities than matching first letters.
    Maebry Eloise o Emilia Sunday o Annabel Birdie
    Piers Lachlan o Roan August o Gray Everett

    I think it would be fine! As long as your kids aren't ALL given names starting with the letter A you would be fine.
