Parents - Do you have a theme in your children's names?

Just curious. I was pondering this for no particular reason. Do you pick each child's name completely independently of each other, or is there some theme or complementary nature that you seek?

If you don't have kids but plan to, you may answer in the future tense.

Themes might include, but are not limited to:

Same first letter - These are my kids, James, Jenny, Jacob, and Jarvis.

Alphabetical theme - These are my kids, Annie, Ben, Charlotte, and Danny.

Biblical theme - These are my kids, Ezekiel, Ruth, Eve, and Nebuchadnezzar.

Family theme - These are my kids (followed by the names of your grandparents).

Catholic/Saints theme - These are my kids, John, Catherine, Christopher, and Joan.

Television/Movie theme - These are my kids, Greg, Jan, Bobby, and Marsha.

Diversity theme - These are my kids, Juanita, Sven, Running Deer, and Panupong.

Gender Neutrality theme - These are my kids, Pat, Chris, Terry, and Sandy.

Location theme - These are my kids, Dakota, Dallas, Virginia, and Paris.

Initials theme - These are my kids AJ, TJ, CJ, and RC.

Rhyming theme - These are my kids, Andy, Randy, Sandy, and Mandy.

Adjective theme - These are my kids, Faith, Grace, Joy, and Hope.

Two-Name Names - These are my kids Peggy Sue, Billy Joe, Norma Jean, and Mary Ann.

There are likely other themes I'm not thinking about.

Faith, grace, joy, and hope aren't adjectives.

I think you're looking for non-concrete nouns.

Only have one child, but when #2 comes along it may be possible. Our son is named after my wife's late brother, and if #2 is a boy, i could see us naming him after my late brother.

As far as me, my name, my brother's, and my sister's all start with M. My parents also had 2 dogs with "M" names. Not sure if that was planned or not.

They all have the same last names. That's the theme.

We just established rules about names....like "Must be easy to pronounce" "Must be something they can say and write in Kindergarten" and no odd ball spellings.

I have a friend who is much more specific...They require the names start and end with 2 specific letters, contain a certain number of letters and not be mainstream.

It's middle names, and B's with us I guess. I'm Brandon Lee.

My Grandpa is Bobby Lee. Got a cousin who is Brian Lee.

And my oldest son is Brett Lee.

The 2nd son is Alexander Michael. Had to switch it up... but it seemed like a strong name to me. He's just Alex now.

I have 2 sons and a daughter. I wanted (at least) one son to be named Gordon which would have matched nicely with my last name and is an excellent hockey name.
She said she couldn't picture a baby named Gordon.
Needless to say, I have 2 sons with ghey names and 2 cats named Gimpy and Gordon, oh, and a daughter.
