Name themes?

Have you thought of naming all your kids with the same first letter or same last syllable? Or perhaps a theme?

If you've already done that, do you wish to continue with your next little one(s)?

I tend to like names that begin with vowels--We also have a loose, almost unintentional theme going--both our kids' names are subtle tributes to family members.

We are trying for at least three kids so that means three names, LOL. I want to have three names picked out before the birth of my first little one. I want three distinct names, all different from the other, and all equally well liked by me and B. I think we have our girls names. We have one boy's name. I want my kids to be able to be themselves and to be able to be individuals, so no themes just wonderful, distinct, names that will let them form their own identity. I totally dislike siblings all having the same letter. I want each kid to be an individual and have their own identity, and having the some letter blocks that a little bit for me. Names are hard to come up with. B either likes something, or hates it and if it's a no it's a no, so we will see. A lot of my favorite boys names are on the no list. It's disappointing, though I love the one boy's name we have and the three girls names we have. I think we come up together with better names then I do on my own, and I really like the ones that we have.

We have an "A" theme going... it wasn't purposely done, just happened to like 2 "A" names... and if baby #3 happens to be a girl, well lol... we have her name picked out and is also an "A" name... if we have a boy though, no idea yet so it may or may not follow the "theme".

Em and Jules: It is smart to think about sibling names going well together!

I don't plan to use any particular theme or letter.

My only requirement is they don't go by their middle names, just because it's confusing.

DS: Peter Amias.
Next by: Silas Timothy

We tend to look more at the meanings. Peter means cornerstone. The original John Caveny (an ancestor from the Civil War) was a stone carver. Silas is Man of the Forest. My dad is a game warden (and I wanted something that would represent him).

Girls...who knows? :)
