My Mom had four kids, the first three were all two years apart. Me, my sister, and one of my brothers spend much of our childhoods being called "Kristevenifer... you know who you are..." I do something similar with my preschool classs- once in a while, I draw a blank, and it ends up something like, "Mikey, Joey, Bradley... what's your name again?"

I guess they do match in that they are both more traditional last names rather than first names. They only match because those are the style of names I like for boys. I would never do all "J" names or anything like that, definitely not my thing.

Both girls have classical names that are some what "ethnic". Both have middle names that begin with the same letter of the alphabet.

I like names that go together in the sense that they are the same style, not necessarily rhyming or start with the same letter.

My kids are Noah, Sophie, and Stella. Soph and Stella both start with s, but that wasn't a consideration when we picked them. We just like older names without nicknames and these two were our favorites!

I do this, too occasionally. I think all teachers do. When I was working on my degree, I was a TA at a preschool and the teacher I worked with kept a stamp next to her and any time she messed up a child's name, she'd give them a stamp on their hand.

I usually tease myself when I do it... "silly Mrs. ****... you got Blake's name wrong... you know he's not Blakob." I do it with a goofy tone of voice and the kids get a kick out of it.

My first two do, and I didn't plan it. We got baby girl home and was like, " oh...well, that's kinda funny". My ds is Parker, and my dd1 is Carlee. Park-Car. And it's also rhymy with the -ar sound. Dd2's name totally doesn't go with their names though....Genevieve. Parker, Carlee, and Genevieve. But whatever. Doesn't matter. They are only all 3 going to be "together" for another 10 years anyways.....lol

Sort of. They are all on the same popularity lists. The ones I named are Grayson and Gavin. I also had liked the name Riley, which is also a boy. I can picture them all as knights of the Round Table. Sir Riley, Sir Grayson, Sir Gavin. But, my dh picked the youngest child's name and named him Ryan. I am not happy there. It is so contemporary and common. I had named like Finley, Callum, and Liam on my list, oh, and Rowan. That was my list.

My daughter's name is complicated. I was going to name her Britta but got made fun of so much for it that I tried to name her Brittany with the intent to call her Britta. I also loved the name Brynn. But no one ever called her Britta. So her name is quite a popular common type name. If I did it over again, I would probably just have named her Brynn or something. I would not name her Brittany if I did it over again I doubt.

My kids names all end in an 'ee' sound. It wasn't planned - that's just the way it ended up

My dd1's name is Elizabeth Anne. I felt a more traditional name would be best to go with her name when dd2 was born. Her name is Kathryn Rose. I was planning to name her Katherine Rose so they'd both have the same number of letters in their names, but Kathryn is a family spelling so we went with that instead.

My son's name is Alastair. It means "defender of men". We were going to have another baby but lost it and we had pick out Aidan or Kylie, so we decided in their memory not to use those names again. And then my daughter's name is Kira and it means "Ruler of the people".


So apparently, we have a thing for STRONG names and names that start with A or K

2 Bs, 2 Js.
Middle names.... we have 2 As, 2 Ms, and 2 Js (thats including parents) But the middle names werent on purpose.
We plan our next 2 to have a different beginning letter, but same to each other.

Nope We have 3 kinda "out there" names, and 3 pretty average names that aren't wildly popular nor unheard of in our parts. We're still deciding on our "tiebreaker."
Somehow, they all gel together.
