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!"Names, once they are in common use, quickly become mere sounds, their etymology being buried, like so many of the earth's marvels, beneath the dust of habit." - Salman Rushdie

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.
