Someone asked me the other day, when we have our next child, will their name begin with a “K”. All 3 (me, hubby, and our son — who is a Jr) names begin with a “K”. So the question was asked –Would the child feel some sort of way if their name did not begin with a “K” as well (feeling left out)?
What do you think — how would you feel — would it bother you or not — and why 8–)
Friendly conversation — just curious.

My family(cousins, etc) is all J’s – Jerry, julie, joey, jenny. I’m an H and I love being different 🙂

@trulyblessed: If it were me and I were your soon-to-be child (lol that’s weird), I would NOT want my name to begin with K! I am an individual! Definitely would not think it was weird to not start with K.

nawella & @Glasgowbound: Thanks so much for responding…. I really appreciate it. It’s always interesting hearing other POVs.

We always used our first initial to label stuff… water bottles and other things. So all of us having different initials was a good thing! Until I left home, and my dad started using his middle initial because he goes by his middle name, which is the same letter as my first initial. So now when I go visit, my water bottle gets labeled with a smiley face. Oh, and my fiance’s first initial and middle initial are the same as my dad’s, which adds even more confusion to it.
@stephanie091512: My sister was named after two people for her first and middle names and I was named after no one. I was hurt for awhile, but eventually came to the conclusion that my parents picked my names because they liked them, and hers because they felt obligated 😛

I wouldn’t have a problem with it!
But all I can think is the only Kardashian without a K name is Rob, and that guy is a mess! (I’m sorry for this example. There was a marathon on at the gym…)

3 out of 6 of us are K’s. I liked having something in common with two of my immediate family members but I don’t think anyone felt left out because their name didn’t start with K.

I wouldn’t have a problem with it. Everyone on my father’s side name starts with an A. I actually find it quite endearing and it’s special for my family. Makes us feel unique to our family.

@trulyblessed: I voted no, and for a couple reasons. First, I just generally find the whole “everyone is named with a theme” thing a little bizarre. I knew kids in school whose families were like that, and it always struck me as cheesy. Second, my brothers were named in a different initial pattern (matching first and middle initials – JJP and DDP), and I wasnt (SCP), and I didn’t feel left out at all. I felt like I was named as an individual.

If my mom, dad, and brother all had the same initial and mine was different, then yes. I would feel very left out. Plus, I think other people would find it odd that the new baby didn’t have the same initial. It’s an awful thing to think, but some would wonder if maybe this baby didn’t mean as much to your or you just didn’t care if the child felt left out of the family.

I wouldn’t care in the least that I had a different first initial. In, fact, I think I’d love it. Unless the other three lorded it over me and made me feel excluded haha.

Totally wouldn’t bother me in the slightest:)

I didn’t vote since i don’t know if it would bother me or not. My sister and I have the same initials for all 3 of our names… we are triple C’s. I love that and one of the reasons why I don’t want to change my last name. My brother is named after my dad, so his only C is his last name. I don’t think he cared or that it bothered him at all. But in your case, i think I would name the next baby a K name since I do think that is super cute if you all have K names. All my kids names are 5 letters for their 1st name which I realized with my 1st 2, so kept the ‘theme’ for the other 2 as well.

Thanks so much everyone. I love hearing different opinions because it makes you think of things that you might not have thought of. It’s always interesting to hear others choice and why they chose it. Thanks again!
