It's An American Thing: Alliterative Names For Siblings

John thinks it's hilarious that my brother and I have alliterative first names. Then again, John and I have alliterative first names, as do our best friends, Joe and Jodi (we also know another couple named Jamie and James - and no, it doesn't stop there. We know more "Js".).

Now, this doesn't always hold true, but I tried to explain that a lot of American parents give their children names that begin with the same letter and that this practice isn't just limited to the Kardashians (ahem, Kourtney, Kim, Khloe) or the Duggar family (of 19 Kids and Counting fame).

"At least," I sniped, "Americans don't recycle the same names over and over again for generations." Ooooh ... smackdown.

What do you think? Would you give your children alliterative names? Do you share the same first initial as your sibling?

The wax seal initial necklace above is from Pyrrha, and I kind of want it.
