First and last letter game

Has anyone done this already? You cut and paste the previous list of girl's names and of boy's names and to each list, you add a name that begins with the last letter of the last name on the list. No repeat names, and try your best to use every letter of the alphabet. So after a few rounds, you might get, say:

Jane --> Ellen --> Nora --> Amber ---> Rosario --> Opal -> etc.....

 

To start:

 

GIRLS: Ruby -->

BOYS:  Max -->

Im game!

I like the last list, too! And I also think that the person who does the 12th should add the next inspiration to keep it going.

I know two Ruby

(We've broken the repeating letter rule here—Elizabeth and Ruth both end in h, and Ruby and Ruth both start with R. I think the objective is to get all the way around the alphabet without repeating a letter, no? Although q may be impossible on the girls' list—I tried once before and couldn't find any girls' name ending in q)

We repeated a letter again on the girls' side—not that there are many options for names that start with x. If we were playing strategically, we would want to reserve the -a and -e endings to use with obscure beginning letters.

Remaining available letters for girls are: b, c, f, g, j, k, m, p, q, u, w, z

And for boys: a, f, i, l, p, q v, w, z; m would need to be the last to go round to Max again

Should we skip the ones that repeat letters?

37
By EVie
February 23, 2014 12:34 AM

Nah, let's just say we lose a point every time we repeat a letter. The objective is to get all the way around the alphabet and back to the first letter with as few repetitions as possible. A perfect score is 0. As of now, the scores are: first chain girls: -3; first chain boys: 0; second chain girls: -3; second chain boys -1.

For reference, it is possible to get all the way around without repetitions (excluding the letter q for girls), but very difficult, since some letters are very rare for either endings or beginnings. I did a couple of sample sets on my own:

Anouk --> Kim --> Merav --> Vivian --> Naomi --> Ingeborg --> Gwyneth --> Harlow --> Winter --> Rosamond --> Damaris --> Solvej --> Juliet --> Tulip --> Pearl --> Lilac --> Cleo --> Onyx --> Xanthe --> Elif --> Felicity --> Ynez --> Zaynab --> Bijou --> Ursula --> Anouk 

Nicolaj --> Josef --> Felix --> Xavier --> Richard --> Dov --> Virgil --> Luca --> Andrew --> Wolfgang --> Giovanni --> Isidore --> Elliott --> Tariq --> Qasim --> Mathieu --> Ubaldo --> Osric --> Caleb --> Boaz --> Zachariah --> Henry --> Yves --> Sandeep --> Patrick --> Kieran --> Nicolaj

I actually do have some q ending names for girls. Mostly Inuit, definitely not common.

Remember, try not to repeat letters. :) 

42
February 24, 2014 1:01 AM

I put Ruby because I thought the goal was to get back to the first name, is it not?

43
February 24, 2014 1:13 AM

The goal is to have 26 names all beginning and ending with a different letter. Doing that would result in being able to repeat the first name at the end.

44
February 24, 2014 1:07 AM

girls' letters not yet used:

b, c, f, k, m, p, q, s, u, v, w, x

 

boys' letters not yet used:

a, b, h, j, n, p, u, w
