same first letter Honey&E 6 kids; Connecticut 3752 posts

If your children's names begin with the same letter has it become a problem? I'm just wondering about paperwork and such.




We are considering naming this baby Elizabeth but we already have an Evelyn.

Never been an issue, ever. Don't see how it would. They actually have the same middle initial too. Which I promise was not on purpose and I even told DH I didn't want to do that. But we could only agree on one name for DS, so that's what happened. They are both EJ

I dont see how it would be an issue? I mean non of my kids share a first letter name, but thats just because I weird like that and wanted them each to have their own letter lol.

Ya, when he started I was like, your name is WHAT? I figured it was short for something but it's not :lol:
He's a weirdo too. He gives off that "I'm gonna kidnap you" vibe.

Quoting Just Ames:" Thank you :) Edwin is after my late Uncle who was like a Grandfather to me. My oldest is James Anthony ... [snip!] ... is a family name. Jonathan was just thrown out there :lol: But we wanted to stay with something traditional and felt it fit."


It makes sense! The girls middles are Rose and Marie, and people are always like "ew you used fillers" but they are both my grandmothers names.



I really want a Dorothy by DH wanted to stick with the stupid K-LY shit.

Nope. Have KMB and KFB. Never had any issues with paperwork. I have modes up birthdays when I was filling out papers and being distracted. But that's easily swapped around.

My brother and I have the exact same initials and same amount of letters in our names. We never had any issues growing up, filling out paperwork or anything, but one year in school we had to use our names (Last name first initial) as our passwords for computer class so when I got to the class my password was already used since he had already taken the class, they had to change mine to my Middle initial but thats the only issue we ever had.

My first two have A names (Allison and Antonio) and my third is an E (Evelyn) . I really wanted the third to be a A name also but DH was against it. I have never had a problem with the first two having the same initial. I really want this baby to have a E name but we can't find anything we can agree on :(

Thankfully my hubby is a weirdo like myself and agrees with me on not reusing the same first letter. We actually have very similar taste in names as well, its never been an issue for us to agree on a name.

Marie is my gmas name too. I want to use it but ya, it's such a filler name now. My grandmas first name that she has never gone by her entire life is Cleo. Ugly haha, and it's not the same, Cleo feels like a different person if I used it. Same with my mom, she's gone by her middle name her whole life but I hate it, it's Lavon. But her fn is Sharon.
