Alliteration?

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]! How does everyone feel about name alliteration?

[name_f]My[/name_f] last name starts with R and is a 1 syllable word.

[name_f]My[/name_f] daughter is obsessed with naming baby sister [name_f]Rose[/name_f], and honestly it’s really growing on me.

[name_f]My[/name_f] only holdup is that she would be [name_f]Rose[/name_f] R. Is that too much of a mouthful? Too cutesy? Etc?

Would it be better to do a longer name like [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] R?

Thanks!!

I’m a fan of alliteration, personally.

[name_f]My[/name_f] concern here would be that a word first name and word surname might sound too wordy or like a cartoon character. I think it would be too cutesy if your surname is a nature, color, or place word (for example R0se [name_u]Red[/name_u], R0se Road, and R0se [name_m]Ridge[/name_m] all sound like places or colors rather than people) but otherwise I think it’s probably alright!

I do think [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] might help make it less wordy if you’re concerned.

It’s really hard to say without knowing the last name, but I think I agree with @EagleEyes. The alliteration isn’t the issue, it’s the double word name. A [name_f]Rose[/name_f] name that isn’t simply [name_f]Rose[/name_f] could definitely help, because it would make it not a word name.

I love a first-name-last-name alliteration! I’m all for it.

Last name is [name_u]Reed[/name_u] if that helps at all :slight_smile:

[name_f]My[/name_f] son has a first-last name alliteration so I’m biased but I think it’s fine. I actually didn’t realise it when I named him.

[name_f]Rose[/name_f] R33d is a tiny bit choppy but it’s not bad and I think it kind of sounds sparky. I do slightly prefer [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] with your surname but if it’s [name_f]Rose[/name_f] you like more, it works

I enjoy alliteration I think [name_f]Rose[/name_f] in particular goes nicely with R surnames, if a middle is also an r that might be too much but having double initials doesn’t bother me :slight_smile:

I absolutely love alliteration my daughter is [name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Ella[/name_f] and I love that her middle names both start with an ‘e’ I think it makes her name look visually prettier.

Regarding [name_f]Rose[/name_f] and your surname I think it depends if your surname is another word name like Road or [name_u]Red[/name_u] essentially exactly what @EagleEyes said. I think if your surname is [name_u]Red[/name_u] or Road then no it’s too much and looks a bit comical. However I think if your change [name_f]Rose[/name_f] up a little bit and went [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_u]Red[/name_u] then that would be absolutely fine. I actually think [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_u]Red[/name_u] (for example) is super pretty. I absolutely love [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] :rose:

I absolutely love [name_f]Rose[/name_f] [name_u]Reed[/name_u]! [name_u]Reed[/name_u] is technically a word name but it isn’t a word that’s used often so it doesn’t really feel like a word name. And it isn’t like a “rose reed” is a thing or means anything specifically. I know a lot of people will probably disagree with me but I actually love how short they both are. You could still go with a longer form if you prefer it, but I prefer just [name_f]Rose[/name_f].

Another huge alliteration fan! Alliterative names are so striking and memorable. I don’t love two one-syllable names together, although [name_f]Rose[/name_f] Reed’s not bad. I’d recommend a longer first with [name_f]Rose[/name_f] as a nickname. [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] is stunning, and I also really like [name_f]Rosanna[/name_f] [name_u]Reed[/name_u].

I like [name_f]Rose[/name_f] Re3d but I think [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] or some other “Rose” starting name flows better.

[name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] Re3d
[name_f]Rosanna[/name_f] Re3d
[name_f]Rosalia[/name_f] Re3d
[name_f]Rosie[/name_f] Re3d

I have no problem with alliteration unless the first & last are basically the same name (ie [name_u]Jack[/name_u] Johnson) or if they’re both colours or something like that (ie [name_f]Rose[/name_f] Red), then it starts to sound too cartoon-y to me. I think [name_f]Rose[/name_f] [name_u]Reed[/name_u] is totally fine!

I’m a fan of alliteration. I like [name_f]Rose[/name_f] Re3d actually, sounds cool and memorable! [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] would also work well though, or maybe [name_f]Rosa[/name_f]. I also like the suggestion of [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f].
