  • If your last name starts with "s" then I would stay away from a first name that starts with "s." I personally don't care for the alliteration of first and last name starting with the same letter. I think it is OK for the middle name to have the same letter as the last since most people don't go by all of their names all of the time.

    I like the sound of Anthony Silas -- BUT with an "s" last name that would make his initials A.S.S. -- eeeek.

  • Don't forget that children are never called by their middle names--unless they're in trouble! What may sound nice in full, may not in common/everyday use. For example: "Silas Stevens," will sound like "Sila Stevens!"

    So make sure you like the first name with the last, and if you use a name that ends in the same letter as their last name begins, that letter will be "lost" when spoken, and can make the name sound awkward!

    Try to envision your son being given a special award, and how his name would sound broadcast over a PA system! :o)
