What do you think of the idea of naming all your kids with the same initial as the first letter of their name?

Like people who's kids are called - Jake, Josh, Justine, Jessica, etc...

  • It's fine, but I already yell out the wrong name most of the time I think it would make it a lot harder!

  • I think it's fine, but it'd get kind of confusing for me. lol. I'm just absent minded though - worse when I get mad or something.
    Coincidentally, our 2 dogs, and our son's name ends with a "Y"
    lol. Not with this next one though! >:D

  • My sister and all three of her boys first names start with an R. In my family we have an A,B,C,D, E (ex-husband) and last name F. The trend was unintensional until the last. It can be fun and bring unity, especially like in my sister's family where they all have different last names.

  • I Know a family who had a singleton child named her Breanna. Then they had twins. Bailey and Bethany. THEN they had twins again... Brett and Brittney.... They want another and it will be another B name. It's okay I guess but I think some people over due it. Like that 18 kids and counting all 18 have J names
