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.

Yep...
I guess Rose, Iris, Lily, and Daisy didn't occur to them?

And the one named Poppy is destined to be a heroin producer when she grows up.

Its a pretty easy theme.

1st born Son (Michael) named after my Brother who died at the early age of 16.

2nd born Daughter (Alexandra) named after my Grandmom.

3rd born Son (James) named after my Dad.

My Mom didn't want my oldest to be named after my brother. She was worried the name was cursed and bad things would happen. But I promised my Dad I would carry though with it.

We had a theme for middle names. Ronald, James, and Dio. My daughter is still a little pissed, but she'll get over it.

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.
"Alexander"? Really should have gone with "Bruce".

I am 60 and just realized something. For the last few generations all of our family members names have started with 'J'. Justin, James, Joe, Jess, John, Jeff, Jan, Joddie, Jacky, Jessica. So why is my first name Robert. I must have been a mistake. I feel sick.
