Do you think the alliteration is too much?

I’m not pregnant right now (although, I deeply, deeply wish…ttc has been a long and exhausting journey that has yet to succeed) but I fill my trying time with name love.

Right now I really love the name [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] I think it sounds gorgeous together and for [name]Penelope[/name] I love the nn’s [name]Penny[/name] and [name]Poppy[/name]–ESPECIALLY [name]Poppy[/name] and I’m not usually much on nn’s. I even think [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] would sounds really cute together but I wondered if the repeating pe sound at the beginning of both [name]Penelope[/name] and [name]Pearl[/name] is too much or is it still acceptable?

I think [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] is sweet…but what letter does your last name begin with? I’m sure you would have mentioned if it was P, but if it is, you may want to stick another letter in there just to break it up a bit.

My last name begins with an I. It is Hungarian and sounds kind of like is smart…I used to get that all the time in [name]Junior[/name] High and I hated it. In hindsight being teased for being smart isn’t the worst thing in the world.

I love alliteration names and [name]Penny[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] is adorable!

[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] is very nice. Not too much at all. [name]Both[/name] names are classy which helps.

It really depends, in this case [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] sounds lovely, but [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] sounds awful.

[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] is sweet, but I’m not a fan of P sounds, so I’m inclined to say it’s too much.

There are certain names that can stand alliteration, but I don’t think P is one of them. P has such a noticeable sound, so it’s very easy to detect when it is used in alliteration. [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] does seem a bit too heavy on the P’s. Still, I don’t think it’s a “bad” combo, and if you really love it, you should use it. However, I would stick to just [name]Penny[/name] or just [name]Poppy[/name] as a nickname. [name]Penny[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] / [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] sound a little too sing-songy, to me.

I think if you are going to do alliteration, A long name and a short name go well together, but 2 short names really accentuates the alliteration too much. So in this case, [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] sounds sort of sweet, [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] is too much.

I think the length and rhythm is okay, but [name]Penelope[/name] just isn’t a name that lends itself to alliteration. It’s already very quirky and has internal alliteration, plus [name]Pearl[/name] is a noun, so [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] kind of sounds like a cartoon to me. Like [name]Olive[/name] Oyl, [name]Daisy[/name] Duck, and [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] would all have lunch together.

It’s not too much. [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] is adorable. You can call her [name]Poppy[/name] as a nickname. [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] is too much for an official name or official nickname in my opinion. If you want to call your [name]Penelope[/name] “[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]” every once in a while, that is cute and silly. But I would just keep others from calling her that too!

[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] doesn’t bother me at all. Sounds cute. Also, how often are middle names used? Almost never. And when they are it’s usually in safe environments: family, close friends, government. It’s not like some bully is gonna scrape up somebodies middle name and use it to mock them. And even if they did, all they could say is ‘wow, that’s cutesy’
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] sounds great. I say go for it.

To be perfectly honest, the alliteration itself doesn’t bother me at all, but if I were a grade-school kid I would desperately want to keep it a secret that my first two initials were P.P. So, no monogramming or anything.
