rhyming names? — The Bump

rhyming names?

So they don't exactly rhyme, but they are similar. DD1's name ends in -lynn.  Currently our #1 boy name ends in -son but pronounced more like -sin

Too matchy matchy?

Re: rhyming names?

  • I feel like it really depends on the actual names. I'm inclined to think it's a bit much but without actual names it's hard to say

  • If it was like... Carolynn and Carson, no I think that's fine.  If it was Carolynn and Finnison, that's too much.

  • Those don't rhyme, they just have the same ending letter.  I know a lot of people who's kids have the same ending sounds.  In fact, in my book club, every one of us (9 women) has a name that ends in -y or -ie except one person.  Kind of crazy.  People loved names like that in the 80s I guess.  Katie, Kelsey, Whitney, Holly, Becky, etc.

  • I think it's fine. If it doesn't bother you and SO I'd say go for it since most of the time the names will be said together will be by you.
  • My friend has 3 sons- Jaden, Logan, Declan. Just because they end in the same letter I don't think they rhyme at all. Yours sounds totally fine.
  • I agree they are fine. I have a cousin named Dawson and like the name


  • Those don't really rhyme. You're fine.
  • They sound good to me :)
  • Totally fine. Cute names.  :smile: 
  • Not rhymey or too matchy
