Do your kids names have some sort of pattern?

I didn't do it on purpose, but my sons both have seven syllables in their entire names. Kinda neat.

  • My kids have successive letters beginning their names. We didn't plan it, but it worked out well. Rami, Sam, and Talya.

  • My son is Eldon and our next child will be Emery. Not on purpose...the first after his Great Great Grandfather and the second after the lake I grew up on. (I dont have any family names that are I just picked a place special to me)

  • Our entire family does. The girls names end in the sound "ey" (merri, jaime, ashley, kathe, brittney, serenty, lilly) and the men can either end in the "ey" sound or "n" (larry, corey, devin, kenn, leon, lee) etc. I named my daughter in coinsidence with this traditional trend.

  • In an unusual way, I see a pattern, but not like the other replies. When my second son was born, I wanted his name to "match" with his siblings' names. My husband had a daughter named Luca and I had a son named Austin when we met. Instead of trying to find one name to go with both Luca and Austin, I just gave him two names; Rocco Gavin. Rocco matched Luca for the Italian side and I thought Austin and Gavin sounded like brothers. I love that his name is sort of a bridge between the two families bringing them together. While it has never been my style to want to hyphenate last names, in this case, I gave my son both last names so he would share both of his siblings' last names as well.

  • Yes, not on purpose but both my girls have the same intials AP and my three boys and husband have the same initials, CP. We just happened to like names that started with those initials. I guess having all your kids with the same initials are the thing to so ever since the kardashians got famous. It's cool if it means something but if someone is just doing it to copy I think it takes away the sentimental value of it.

  • Idk if you would call it a pattern or not. But John is named for his father & grandfathers, as was my hubby.. We'll be doing the same for the next boy we have (if we have one) Only this time using my father's name & hubbys middle name (which was his grandfathers name)

  • We have absolutely no pattern at all. Our first DD has my middle name that I always loved and swore I'd name my dd lol, her middle name my husband always liked for a girl so she was easy. DD2 was a lot harder, we ended up naming her after 2 Beatles songs :)
