Re: Please help me pick a name!
Personally, I would stay away from first names with the same ending sound. Same goes for the L - that would be too many L sounds! Even if you really like the name, test it out together for the full effect. You don't want it to be really rhyme-y or have a lot of alliteration. You could always come up with a variation on the name.
My last name is Curry, so I stay away from 2-syllable names, hard C- or K-names, and those ending in the Y sound. My two kiddos each have names with three syllables - that seems to go best with their last name.
