It's Alliterative!

I’ve been thinking about names lately. I think people with alliterative names (first and last names that start with the same letter) have it really cool.

Ansel Adams
David Duchovney
Ben Bradlee
Peter Parker (aka Batman)
Donald Duck
Mickey Mouse
Cassius Clay
Lisa Leslie
Matthew McConnahey
Robin Roberts
Ronald Reagan
Lennox Lewis
Helen Hunt
Courtney Cox
Rebecca Rominjn
Harry Hamlin
Hugh Hefner
William Wordsworth
Mike Myers
Travis Trit
Tamika Tyler

While I was assembling my list, I ran across this article on Yeah that says that perhaps alliteration is a shortcut to definite stardom. Apparently, alliteration makes a name stick in the brain and roll off the tongue with ease. I can see that.

There are a few alliterative names in the scrap community…

Donna Downey
Christina Cole
Brittany Beattie
Brenda Birrell
Bazzil Basics (ok well technically not a person…but still well-loved)
Sherri Steveson
Leslie Lightfoot
Marianne Madsen
Michael Miller
Making Memories

So, I guess if I had wanted to be a star, I should have stuck with the plan I devised in Kindergarten to marry the boy with the long hair named Matt Sanders.

Shoot! I knew I should have changed my name to Tracie Trumbone when I thought of it!
