I wouldn’t. I’ve known several people with the same first and last names (or close enough), and I’ve always wondered what their parents were thinking.

Yes, cruel and unusual punishment. 😬😬

 

ETA: Are you thinking Noelle Noel? Please pretty please don’t do it. 😬

Don’t do that to the child. Really, out of ALL of the names that exist you can’t come up with a single other option??

Please, just name your kids something normal. As someone who has HAAAAAAATEEDDDD my name with the fiery passion of a thousand sons, who will never forgive my parents for the name…please just name them something normal with the most common spelling. Think about how many hours Ashley/Ashleigh/Ashlies have wasted in their lives explaining the spelling of their name.

You should not do that.

fourthnoel :  If you have to question it, it’s not appropriate

My sister was going to call her daughter Allie Ashley until I stepped in and stopped her.

There’s a very famous Australian children’s novel called “Hating Allison Ashley” (that literally got made into a movie) and her daughter would get crucified in school.

Don’t do it. We all hear of the names David Davidson or William Williams and wonder what the parents were thinking.

Oh I wanted to add another thing 

Knew someone in high school who had a kid when she and her then boyfriend were 18. His last name was Newton. Called their child “Isaac” because “they were obsessed with the biscuits”

Didn’t have the heart to correct her. It was like talking to a goddamn courgette.

I’m pretty sure giving that first name would make people even more likely to mispronounce the last name. 

So no! Don’t do that.
