    Double -a endings

    Your opinion on double -a endings in name combos that don't rime?

    Examples:
    Anastasia Lotus Lyra
    Anastasia Eliza Esther
    boys
    Emil Orpheus ° Percy Frederick ° Maximilian Remy ° Arthur Endymion ° Tristan Drury ° Cedric Dimitri ° Magnus Roland

    It bothers me because it's repetitive. I would use a middle that doesn't end in a.

    It depends on emphasis on the a and if there's enough contrast or balance not to clash together. Your two examples have just the right balance to flow together nicely. Anastasia has four a's breaking it up and your two middles break up into two syllables each so you've got a nice 4 and 4 rhythm going so it balances out.

    It doesn't bother me. I guess something that rhymed like Lara Cara would be a bit weird, but I don't think there's anything wrong with something like Lara Cordelia. But then, maybe I'm biased because almost every girl name I like ends in -a.

    Most of these are Arabic/Muslim names.
