Rhymey names? A&J. ♥ 1 child; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 5613 posts

Would you ever give your child a first name that rhymed with their last name?



Like for instance,
I've always LOVED the name Josephine. It was my great grandmothers name and I'd love to honor her memory by naming my daughter that (if I have one)



But say her father (completely hypothetical) had the last name... Breen.



She'd be Josephine Breen. Does that sound stupid?

Yes. I'd never do that.

I do not think so. SO's last name ends with "ton" at the end. I like the name Madison so it will rhyme I also like the name Lillian.. so I am on that boat.

I personally wouldn't do it. Our last name is Constantine, and DH thought about naming DD#2 Constance.



No.
The names can't be alike at all for me.

Off topic. But Breen is my maiden name.

I like the nickname Jo. Like from little women.

Honestly I don't think it's a bad combo of a name, and most of the time people aren't even called by their full first names anyway.
