Multi-Generational Family Name Trend

Had to share with people who may appreciate this as much as I do, even though I'm sure many other families are like this; I met a family today whose tradition of giving siblings the same letter names goes back for 3 generations including in-laws. 

Grandpa is Michael "Mike," and his brother is Mark. Grandma is Kristy, and her sister is Kimberly. Their kids are Bethany and Blake. Bethany married Eric, whose 5 siblings are Elaine, Erin, Edria, Ember, and Ethan. Bethany and Eric's kids are Lily, Levi, and Lyla.

Wow! I wonder if there's something about initial-theming families that might make them gravitate to one another? And do Lily, Levi, and Lyla have any opinion on continuing the theme?

Hahaha I guess opposites don't always attract! Lily, Levi, and Lyla were all under 10 so they haven't thought much about their future baby names. :)

I grew up with all "S" names in my family, including the pets.

Our favorite girl name was completely out after my oldest was given an "A" name. We don't duplicate initials at all here if we can help it.

I have a friend from an M family (4 kids) married to a guy from a C family (also 4 kids). So far, they just have the one daughter (E name), but her sister has also chosen an E name for her son so... watch this space.
