I get frustrated because we tend to orbit around specific letters, yet we want the children to have their own initials.
We like N names: Nora, Nell, Nina, Nico, Nemo (mostly as a guilty pleasure), Niels. They all sound and look more or less the same.
E names: Edmond, Ellen, Eliza, Edward, Emilia.
T names: Theo (our son's name), Tessa, Thomas, Althea.
And of course our problematic "ra" ending - two syllable names for girls: Nora, Cora, Flora, Vera, Ciara, Clara, Lara.

Yes... I just made a thread on it, asking for help, because, honestly, I cannot decide.
eg: Arthur, Artemis, Athena, Amadeus, Abner
Ferelith, Fenella, Frederica, Francesca, Forest, Frost, Franklin
Hestia, Helena, Harriet, Henriette, Hale, Henry
Roland, Rosemary, Rowenna, Remus
Maxine, Marine, Minerva
Elke, Elva, Esmeralda, Emerald
Wolfgang, Winnie, Walter
I don't have a problem with children sharing initials (I wouldn't have a problem with, say, Theodora and Tatiana), but a lot of my choices are quite similar, and often share the same nn (eg Arthur and Artemis: Artie / Art).
