My Naming Style

I love alliterative names - to me they sound fun and spunky and flow well, while still allowing the capacity for whatever other sort of first name you’re looking for, e.g. [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Blythe[/name] (vintage first), [name]Sophia[/name] [name]Saffron[/name] (popular first).

I was watching the film [name]Scott[/name] Pilgrim Vs The World when I identified exactly why I love this sort of name - alliterative, and usually one unusual choice paired with one more common/average name - to me, they sound like a glamorous comic book character, fun but able to work on real people. Some famous examples that I like include [name]January[/name] [name]Jones[/name] and [name]Tennessee[/name] [name]Thomas[/name], although I would be looking for first-middle alliteration, rather than first-last.

Does anyone else like this sort of name? Can any of you Berries come up with some fun combinations? I’m not expecting, by the way, just thought I’d share my love!


Also (apologies, I haven’t worked out how to edit posts on the new Nameberry quite yet), I haven’t found any boys’ names in this style that I like … does it just not work as well with boys’ names, or can the Berries whip up something handsome but fun? For example, [name]Gilbert[/name] Grape (like the movie) is fun to say, but sounds like something from a children’s healthy eating book!

I have always loved alliterative names too! Unfortunately, my ln stars with an ‘S’ so alliteration takes on a certain snaky quality. I agree that these names are like comic book characters-strong and spunky. I like first-last name alliteration best, but some combos are

[name]Julia[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Hayes[/name]
(actually know babies with the above names)

[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Beatrix[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]
[name]Daphne[/name] [name]Dahlia[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Patience[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Elliott[/name] (actually on my list!)

All my favorite names have alliteration!
Here are some I like:

[name]Poppy[/name] [name]June[/name] [name]Jemima[/name]
[name]Bridget[/name] [name]Bryony[/name] [name]May[/name]
[name]Saffron[/name] [name]Susannah[/name] (Or [name]Susannah[/name] [name]Saffron[/name], depending on the day)
[name]Maisy[/name] [name]Maude[/name]
[name]Tabitha[/name] [name]Tuesday[/name]
[name]April[/name] [name]Ava[/name]
[name]Audrey[/name] [name]Anne[/name]

My daughter’s name is [name]Gemma[/name] [name]Juliet[/name]!
[name]How[/name] about [name]Sawyer[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name]?
