I have a weird thing against first and last names ending in the same letter, so I don't personally think it flows well but that's just me. Haha I like the names Ashton and Iriwn, though.

I think Ashton Irwin is making this grow on me because his name flows so well. Any name with a Win sounds I really can't resist! 😍
