    Name Combo rules?

    Does anyone have any rules for how they place names in combinations?

    I dislike running letter eg Magnolia Alaia
    I am coming around to both names ending in the same letter/sound eg Camila Roxanna
    I kinda love Alliteration eg Wilhelmina Wren

    What are your rules when placing names together in combinations?

    I try to avoid repeating sounds (e.g. I wouldn't put two favourites as combo Fay Seraphina as both have a strong "fff" sound - very picky Haha)
    My only other "rule" is I try to balance styles (e.g. one traditional, one quirky or I wouldn't have two nature names - such as my daughter Olive Margaret )

    I avoid names that end / begin in the same letter and sound, like Ophelia Alice. I'll make an exception to this for certain letters that flow into each other, like the N in Oberon North.
    I avoid alliteration, like Alice Avalon.

    I like to have repeating sounds to tie my combos together, like Ophelia Fawn or Cosima Rose.
    I need all of my combos to have at least one word name (and lately I've been even more strict with this rule, making each combo with one nature name).

    I have a mild form of synesthesia where it's not about individual letters, but whole worlds sometimes have a feeling or color or image attached, and those need to be harmonious or the combo doesn't work for me. For example, Cosima feels like a dark midnight blue, while Rose is a dusty pink. These two colors are very pleasing to my mind's eye, so Cosima Rose works for me. But even though I love the sound of Wren, it feels like golden-brown with bits of yellow, and that clashes with Cosima in my mind. Therefore, Cosima Wren doesn't work for me, even though it looks pretty on paper and the sounds are nice together.
    Along the same lines, I need my names and combos to be evocative - if I don't get any impressions from the name, no images or colors, then I won't use it. I have to have a connection to the name; it has to bring light or color or imagery to my mind.
