I think it sounds fine! I think most people don’t go as far as to think about syllable patterns, or I’m just in my own blissful ignorance! lol

I’ve never noticed this before. I cannot unknow this. D: haha!

But, no, I don’t think it will sound stupid.  I think you’ll be fine 🙂

This is the structure of my first and last names; three syllables each with the emphasis on the second, plus they both start with the same letter, have the same number of letters, and each end in a vowell. I never thought it was goofy, possibly a little sing-songy but in a romantic way; people usually think it is a pretty name. It has never bothered me and I have had it for 18 years (married name but kept it after the divorce because I have 2 children with that last name). If you want to take your FIs last name, I wouldn’t let the syllable pattern stop you 🙂

Honestly I don’t even notice it. I think its more obvious if the names have the same number lf syllables or start with the same letter.

I’d hardly notice as long as there was no internal rhyming going on too. When I was previously married, my married name scanned in dactylic hexameter, which was amusing.

When I take FI’s name, the emphasis will be on the second syllable of both my first and last name, and they’ll both be two syllable names, AND they’ll ryhme. It is not nice sounding, at all. I’m campaigning hard for him to take my (short, sweet, easily pronounced, not super-duper common) last name….it is NOT going well.

I have 4 syllables in both my first and last name. It’s a mouthful to say but the only issue I’ve encountered is sometimes when I say my first name really fast, I have to slightly pause before saying my last name. Otherwise the other person’s eyes glaze over and they’re like “whaaaaaaaaa?” haha. You should be good to go, though!
