    Hi! I love alliteration, but I think it depends on the letter and combo involved. (It's really easy for something to sound too sing-songy to me, like Poppy Price.)

    Max McAlister: I think this is great...
    Noah Nichols: This is bordering on sing-songy to me, but I could see something like Natalie Nichols working...
    Henry Hatfield: A bit sing-songy to me, but I can see Henry with a longer H last name. (I love Henry!)
    Juliet Johnston: This works for me.


    Have a great night! :-)

    The most extreme case of alliteration I ever saw was my high school English teacher. His name was Hampton Horatio Hairfield. He was a Jr. so he and his father shared this unusual name. I think alliteration can be okay....it just depends on the individual names.

    I will let my daughter's name and my current name love share my answer.

    Daughter: Lilianna Lareese
    Name Love: Georgiana Genevieve

    If I ever have a second girl and get my husband behind that name, that will so be my second daughter someday!

    So, yeah, I love alliteration. In fact, as you will see, my daughter actually has three L's in her name and the second has three G's, so you get those beautiful sounds three times! (I also like long names, if you couldn't tell)

    Max McAlister (mn Christian) - Love it!
    Noah Nichols - It's cute! Still like it, but not my favorite.
    Henry Hatfield - Love it!
    Juliet Johnston - The two t's causes this one to flow funny off of my tongue. If it were Juliet Johnson then it would be ever so pretty!

    Personally, I hate it and try to avoid as much as I can. I don't why, but I have such a problem with alliteration in names, especially with first and last names.
    For example, there is a teacher at my school named Rachel Robinson. I'm not sure what it is, but it really bothers me.
    I also try to avoid it with first and middle names, too. Even if they don't start with the same sound. For example, Chloe Charlotte. I just don't like the repeating of the same letters. Now, if it's like that with a last name, it doesn't bother me as much.
