Why I'm Glad I Grew Up an Only Child

Would You Name All Your Kids With the Same Letter?

Seems like the Kardashians are keeping with the letter "K." Momager Kris Jenner kept it in the family naming all five of her daughters in the same vein —Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie. And, Sylvester Stallone and his wife, Jennifer Flavin followed suit favoring "s" first names and "Rose" as a middle moniker for their gaggle of girls — Sophia Rose, Sistine Rose, and Scarlet Rose.

Do you find this practice cool or completely nauseating?

both my husband and I have k names and if we have a son he wants to share his name. wouldnt it be weird if everyones name started with a k? or would it be worse to have 3 k's and than the second child's name to start with a different letter? im trying to convince him to like other boy names but he wants a mini me. unfortunately i think im losing that war ):

I think people are being a little unfair. My sister and I both have names beginning with the letter "K" and it had nothing to do with alliteration being cutesy. They had two names that they both liked and they decided that they liked my name (since I'm the younger of the two) spelled with a "K" rather than a "C." I'm inclined to agree. I think it's really silly of people to say that my parents should have spelled my name a way they disliked just to avoid my sister and I having the same first (temporarily last) initials, despite the fact that initials have no real significance to us.

We did it, kind of. Not on purpose. My eldest is Justin. When we got pregnant with our second child my boy name started with a M, but the only girl name I liked was Julia. When she was born Julia it was. But I didn't do it so they would match. Now when my youngest was born, I intentionally did NOT want a J name. So we named her Alyssa. She has an A name like me ;)

We are all A's — my mom, my dad, my brother and myself. I think it's kind of cute actually!

I had never even thought of doing that. My parents each had 8 brothers and sisters (my mom had nine but one died in infancy) and they all had completely different names. My husband and I both have J names and we decided right away to not go with J names for our kids. We have three boys, Ryan, Anthony and Dylan.

My parents did this to me, so no way would I inflict it on my kids!

Nope. Thank God my parents didn't do that to me and my siblings. They have a hard enough time with Abby(older sister), Rich(older brother), and me, Laura. I get called Abby AND Richie half the time. They've been moved out of the house for about six years now.. Hmmm... My Dad usually says, "Ab--or, Laur--, Laura!" Sometimes I feel like I should wear a name tag. :-P

I think if it is coincidence but I wouldn't go out of my way just to name everyone the same letter

I love having the same initials as my sister. I actually who came up with the idea. (I had this super cute i.d bracelet at the time and I knew I would out grow it and I thought it would be so cool if it became hers) Whats hella funny is that all 3 of my step-sisters names start with the letter B. And the more I think of it my cousin named her 3 kids with A names as well. What can I say its better than everyone being a junior (which we also have a lot of !jesus my family is huge!) Oh and I plan on giving my kids the same initials so does my sister!

My ex husband's uncle named all their kids with "K" names and the parents had "K" names too...Kevin, Kathy, Kally, Karey, Kolleen, and Katy. I hated it. I vowed never to do that!!! My daughter has a "K" name and my son a "T" name. If I have any more kids they will be a "J" name for a girl and a "C" name for a boy.

PetSugar...I don't know if I should admit this or not, but when my husband and I eventually get a dog we plan on naming him Otis because my son is Milo. Cheesy I know, but we find it funny. :)

My husband and I picked out the name Milo James for our son so he could have an M and J combination and share our initials. I'm a Jennifer and dh is Michael. We wanted him to have a little piece of us in his name with out using the same names.

This totally made me think of George Foreman and all his Georges! I don't know if I would choose matchy-matchy names for kids... I even roll my eyes when strangers joke that I should get another dog named South (to accompany my pooch North)... so not gonna happen!

I don't think its so bad if you only have two kids, but more than that and it just starts to get confusing. And what I find most annoying with the rhyming names is when people make up names just so they rhyme. I have no real examples that I can think of but I've seen it! Like Steven and Bevin. hehe
