    Alice with last name starting with S?

    Question in the subject!

    Thinking of Alice with an Italian last name starting with Spi-

    Does this not flow well, or sound like just one elongated name? I think we'll have a short middle name to break it up, but since most of her life will be just first and second, wondering how this sounds. Any standard restrictions I should think of with the last name if still looking at others for the first?

    Thanks in advance!

    I also have a last name that starts with 'S' and my daughter's name flows into it slightly. I was also hesitant to use a name like Alice or Frances. You really just have to decide if it's a dealbreaker for you or not. I don't think there's anything wrong with it, I just knew it would bother me! (like if we went with Beatrice instead)

    People would probably think her name was Alice Pi-something instead of Alice Spi-something. I personally would use another name but if you love Alice so much you should use it.

    Assuming the name would be something along the lines of Alice Spinelli--I think it sounds great.

    I think it flows well! I agree that people might think it's Alice Pi- instead of Alice Spi- originally, but I don't think it's too much of an issue at all!

    Thanks for all the great feedback here!!

    Definitely giving us some color - we've got her arriving in just a few days (expected), I could see us going with it.
