    Same number of letters?

    I'm sure this has been asked time and again, so sorry for being redundant!

    I've always been a numbers person, so I love patterns and trends in sibling names. I love the cohesive look of all the names of the siblings having the same amount of letters and syllables. Is that silly, or an acceptable type of trend?

    Silly to me. I am fine with the one letter trend -- I find it cute, actually! But the same length? Taking it too far.

    I don't think it's silly. It's a subtle pattern that most people don't appreciate. Naming styles are so personal that you dictate what is acceptable to you. Everyone has quirks that seem 'weird' to others. It might be hard to set that trend for your own sibset, but fun to try!

    My DH, DD and I all have two-syllable names. My name is 5 letters, DH's is 7 letters and DD's is 7 letters. We didn't set out for that, but I find it super interesting and might try for a two syllable 5 letter name for our next child.
    Love love talking names... my 'style' is more classic but I do love some surprising choices too...
