Alliterative names

You either love them or hate them. Alliterative names - with first and last names starting with the same letter/sound - is a subject that many people have strong feelings about. Those that hate them typically think they are too cutesy or "matchy-matchy". They just make it too hard to take a person seriously. These people actively avoid giving this type of name to their children. If you're feeling that way that's ok. Just skip this section.

What's interesting though is that they are loved for the same reason they are hated - because of the matchy-matchy sounding. This makes the name easy to remember, more memorable and can instantly turn your name into a "brand" of sorts.

The memorable factor is also why many celebrities use alliterative names. We may think that they choose this, and some deliberately do, but many more are actually given alliterative names. Does this make it easier for them to reach stardom? Who knows. But some are plainly happy with their alliterative names, as some alliterative celebrities (Sylvester Stallone, Robert Rodriguez, Steven Spielberg) have continued the tradition with their own children.

Other examples are Coco Chanel, Greta Garbo, Hulk Hogan, Marilyn Monroe, Danny DeVito, Ronald Reagan or Matthew Mcconaughey. And, of course, some of the biggest brands in the world such as Coca Cola, Dunkin Donuts, Best Buy and Range Rover.

Applying the rules and filters outlined above, we've identified the following alliterative names that sound really good with Alford.
