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.

I had my kids names picked out probably 16 years before they were born.
Hannah & Gage. No theme just what I knew I wanted.

That's actually cute. There are several girls named Sierra in our circle, which think is cute as well.

First two boys have same first letter and, as I recall that was intentional. The 3rd child was just a name we liked after looking up baby names for awhile.

There is a family at my kids school whose kids names Maddi, Mindy, Marky, Mikey.
Nice children but I've always found that odd...

Speaking of middle names, my first born has my middle name. Second born has my wife's great uncle's (whom she loved very much) middle name. My 3rd has my wife's middle name. So there's another theme.

I have four daughters and all of their first names end in the letter "a." It wasn't originally planned, but after #3, we had to follow the pattern with the youngest. Also, each kid has some part of their name (usually their middle name) that comes from another family member, living or deceased. The exception is my oldest who is named after my Paternal Grandmother and my Mother..

If things had worked out SLIGHTLY differently, we would've had a "Russian Tsars" theme for my two boys, but it didn't work out that way.

Not that we said to ourselves "hey, let's name our kids after Russian Tsars", but rather there were a few names that we really liked, and they happened to be the names of Tsars.

I remember a family in my town when I was growing up -- the Johnsons, Jacksons, something like that.

Like 8 kids, all with a first name beginning with "J". Jason, John, Jessica, Jeremy, Joshua, etc.

You get what I'm saying.

Their house had big letter "J"s all over it too.

Just...wow.

Our convention has multiple rules:
1. First name after a biblical character with a great story to tell. For example, Joshua, the most faithful of all Israel. Has a great story to the name.
2. No two in the family have the same first initial.
3. Middle names are family names.
