    I've never really thought too much about this but I can definitely pick out common patterns in all my combos...
    - Little to no repeating sounds
    - One/two syllable nature names in the second middle spot
    - No alliteration
    - Landscape imagery is my friend
    - First name tends to be the longest but sometimes it's the first middle
    - Try to avoid putting names together that end in a similar sound (with some exceptions)
    Juliette Seraphina Lark - Adelaide Viola Wren - Rosalind Emilia Dove
    Adelia Sonnet Fern - Avalon Wisteria Moon - Aurelia Dawn Hero
    Lydia Guinevere Seren - Elowen Cerelia Venus - Daphne Meridia Carmen
    Acadia Tempest Eir - Astoria Maven Winter - Adaline Cecilia Faye

    I don't have any strict rules, but I try to avoid rhyming or almost rhyming names. I'm also not a fan of repeating sounds, but as long as it's not too obvious I don't really mind it.
    I do like alliterations, as long as the names aren't too similar (i.e. different number of syllables, not rhyming, one sounds softer than the other...)

    Come to Nameberry haha. For real though- combos give me wayyy more stress than they should so I come to Nameberry.

    That being said I tend to like "bold". Like "this is my style, I'm not toning it down". I would name my child Ouida Ursula all day long even though the flow isn't best over something like Ouida Elise because I genuinely like Ursula and Elise is just lukewarm.
