When contemplating names for our boys, we chose not to go the alliteration route. We didn’t want matching names. My husband’s name is Jon, my name is Laura, and we wanted names that matched the “style” of our names – solid, dependable, classic. Jon wanted names that have nicknames. We were planning to use my grandfathers’ names as middle names so we needed first names that flowed with those names. Jon loved the name Alex (Alexander Joseph) and I loved the name Nate (Nathan Robert), and those names together met all our standards.
2.75 years and we finally hit our first name issues. I’ll give you a hint what these names have in common:
A L E X & N A T E
Oh yes, the fighting over the only “A” and “E” in our various alphabet sets has commenced.
Even better? Our last name:
C A S E
Nobody gets to spell anything in this house without a fight right now.
