Would you ever name your kid something that rhymes with your name?

That would be too cutesy for me.

Sadly, all the girl names I like rhyme with my name (I must be biased). I don’t have children yet but I think as much as I like the names that rhyme with mine I would force myself to pick something else.

Probably wouldn’t cross my mind, but I don’t actually care for the names that rhyme with mine anyway, so no.  I certainly wouldn’t do it with that intent any more than I’d give a pair of twins rhyming names.  Only lends to confusion (whose name did you call?) or embarrassment (haha your parents gave you matching names)

The Ivana/ Ivanka names are a bit odd to me

If I just so happened to really love the name. Now that you mention it, my name is Mia and one of my favorite girls names has the nickname Leah. That never even occured to me. I’ve always thought I may call my kid Leah if I had a girl.

Frankly, people name their kids after themselves all the time. If all the men named Robert do just fine with their kid named Robert, rhyming can’t be that bad/weird/confusing. 

It’s not something I’d seek out to do, but I don’t think it matters. Madison/Adison is kind of a bit much. I wouldn’t say it’s too cutesy though. I would just assume she is named after mom.

Nothing rhymes with my name, so I’m in the clear.

Don’t do it! It’s a pain in the ass. My dad and I have names that rhyme with each other and every single day that we are together, it is a problem at least once. So easily avoidable.

Nooooo… I’m just imagining “I’m Stacy and these are my children Tracy, Macy and Chasey.”

It would be really easy to mishear one name for the other. Plus, I’m not really a fan of naming the kid after yourself. The kid needs its own identity. Ironically, Darling Husband was named after his dad, and our theoretical son will likely also share the same name.
