Nomes e mais Nomes: Serão Alícia & Letícia as próximas Vânia & Tânia? | Name News | Scoop.it
Reflexão sobre os nomes Letícia e Alícia.
Clare's insight:

Vânia and Tânia made waves in Portugal in the 1980s, as parents looked for names that sounded fresh and moved away from traditional ones. Filipa wonders: are Letícia and Alícia destined to be the same thing of the 2010s?

Mum branded 'silly' for considering rhyming name for her baby - Daily Star

Mum branded 'silly' for considering rhyming name for her baby - Daily Star | Name News | Scoop.it
A MUMSNET user asked for advice about naming her child. She received a mixed response when she asked if 'rhyming' baby names were acceptable.
Clare's insight:

I'm in the camp of, I wouldn't deliberately choose a name to fit the pattern, but if it happened to be my favourite name then why not? I know a couple of people with names (or nicknames) with this effect. And it's noticeable but not negative, just in an "oh that's interesting" sort of way.

Roses and Cellar Doors: Aidens Gonna Aid (2018)

So, um; it's May? Yikes. No better way to get back into this than the annual SSA lists, though; am I right?

Usual disclaimer: there are imported names that look like -aidens, but aren't properly pronounced as -aidens (Adán, Raiden, Nayden, and probably others). However, I have no way of knowing which pronunciation was intended, and chances are some parents are using them as -aidens anyway.
Clare's insight:

Love this annual tradition :)
