Your Best and Worst Name Letters

Okay, so maybe you’re not going to give all your children names that begin with C…..or that start with vowels or contain the lovely letter L.  (Or maybe you are, and that’s okay too.)

But have you noticed a sound pattern to the names you like?  You might find yourself attracted to names that contain the letter O — as I knew I was when I realized I’d given my children the O-heavy names Rory, Joe, and Owen.

Or you might love names that have the soft S sound in there somewhere, or names that start with A or end with N.

And at the same time, maybe you DON‘T like names with the hard K sound or that end in the trendy -er.

Which name letters do you like best?  And least?  And what are some of your favorite names with your favorite letters?
