In the spirited fun of Dr Seuss

Vera Violet Vinn of Dr Seuss’s ABC inspired me to think about alliterative first and middles,

What fun! πŸ™‚

I had trouble thinking of famous people the only one I though of was author Alan Alexander Milne.

Can you think of others?

    I’m usually not a fan of alliterative names, but I love it when the first name is short and the middle is long. Maeve Margaret is a favorite of mine, and I love Abby’s daughter’s name (Claire Caroline Wren).

      Maeve Margaret is super pretty, what do you think of Margot Mae/Margaret Mae? I didn’t know that was her full name she calls her Clio?

    My Nanna in laws name was Jeanette Joan Jeffery
    And her papa was John ‘Jack’ Joseph Jeffery
    I must say I love it and would like to do something similar.
    Ones I have thought of to honour them with our ‘F’ last name are:
    Flora Fae Formosa ‘F-surname’
    Felix Frederick ‘F-surname’
    I think they are all adorable.

    I like Charlotte Cecily – I think it’s kind of cool when names that start with the same letter have different sounds.
