Do you like or dislike when first and middle names start with the same sound?

There are some cases where I LOVE it. They don't necessarily need to start with the exact same letter, just similar sound:

Emerson Isabella <--love this!
Oliva Isabella
Isabella Olivia
Caroline Kate
Gavin Gregory

I think it depends on the sound.. there are hard letters and soft letters, and I don't think two hard letters usually sounds good. Cassandra Catherine, Gavin Gregory, Deborah Diane - those don't work for me. Leighton Lance, Morgan Michael do work.

well your first three name sets don't begin with the same sound, like you said, and i think the phonemes are distinct enough from one another that they don't really sound similar at all.

my first and last names begin with the same sound and i'm not a fan of it at all. in fact i was trying to avoid taking my dh's name because dislike it so much. buuut, it doesn't bother me with all names that are that way. in fact, if you're going to do that i think it's better to have a first and middle name that begin with the same sound than a first and last because that's what you hear most often.
