Audrey - too close to last name?

[name_f]My[/name_f] husband and I both love the name [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] for a girl, but my one concern is our last name, which is [name_u]Avery[/name_u]. Is [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u] too sing-song-y?

In general, I love our last name, but it has so many limitations when it comes to naming since it starts with an A, ends in a Y, and has two syllables. I also have always loved the name [name_u]Ashley[/name_u], which presents the same issue.

I’d love to hear from others about whether you would use this combination or if it’s too much!

I do know sisters named [name_u]Ashley[/name_u] and [name_u]Avery[/name_u]. But with your last name, I do think [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] and [name_u]Ashley[/name_u] are too sing-songy.

What about [name_f]Audra[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u]? The beginning sounds are different and your eliminate the problem of y ending. I also like [name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u].

It is possible to go with a double barrel name that would break up the sing-songy nature of the name - something like [name_f]Audrey[/name_f]-[name_u]Jo[/name_u] [name_u]Avery[/name_u] works.

I actually like it. I think alliteration can sound great. I’m not concerned with the A and y as much as the repeating r sound, but I still think it’s nice. [name_u]Ashley[/name_u] [name_u]Avery[/name_u] actually sounds a little better, but I find [name_u]Ashley[/name_u] to be really, really dated to the 80s and 90s.

I love the suggestion of [name_f]Audra[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u]. [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u] is a bit much.

I think it’s meh, I mean it would be engraved in my brain if I met an [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u]. Double-barreled first names are always the thing to go to if the surname doesn’t go, such as [name_f]Audrey[/name_f]-[name_f]Rose[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u] or something like that, if [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] is a name you really, really want to use.

I like [name_f]Audra[/name_f] though, as well as [name_f]Audrina[/name_f].

[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u]…yeah, it is too close t othe last name.

Yes - it is too close [name_f]IMO[/name_f].

I think [name_f]Audrina[/name_f] is a beautiful name and would work. [name_f]Do[/name_f] you like that?

I’d choose a name that starts w/a consonant. [name_f]Valeska[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u], [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f], [name_f]Juliette[/name_f], etc. [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] would be a nice mn choice.

I actually really like it. [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u] sounds like a rockstar or other celebrity. Not many names like this work, but I think this does. Good luck!

Personally I wouldn’t use it because of the double A and “ree” sound. But I’m just in like with the name [name_f]Audrey[/name_f]. If you are in love with [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] I say use it. A middle name can help split up the repetitive sound too. But as far as repetitive names go I agree with above^ [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u] does have an intentional ring to it and could definitely see it on an artist/celebrity of some-sort . I think the suggestion of [name_f]Audra[/name_f] is great, but sometimes it’s better to find a brand new name you love than use a slightly altered version.

Sorry i don’ think it works at all. I love [name_f]Audrey[/name_f], but there are lots of beautiful names. What about [name_f]Vita[/name_f] or [name_f]Pearl[/name_f]?

It’s doable but not something I’d choose to do.

It’s kind of catchy, and if [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] is your favorite I’d use it. Like the PP, I think [name_u]Ashley[/name_u] [name_u]Avery[/name_u] is a bit better because it doesn’t have the double “ree.” Or [name_f]Annesley[/name_f] (not [name_u]Ainsley[/name_u], the A sounds in first and last are too similar).

I love the idea of a double barrel to balance it - it makes the repeated sounds seem intentional but gives you a break in between. If I heard any of these in real life I’d think it was adorable:
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u]
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u]
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Belle[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u]
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_u]Lou[/name_u] [name_u]Avery[/name_u]
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Tess[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u]
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u]
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u]
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u]
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Bee[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u]
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u]
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u] [name_u]Avery[/name_u]

Sorry but [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u] isn’t good. I don’t like the sound of it or the way they look together (rey and ery are the same letters switched around).
