Alliterative Name

Go To

"I'm Penny Parker. You can remember that 'cause it's got the same letter at the front of each name. That's important theatrically, you know."
Penny Parker, MacGyver, "Every Time She Smiles"

In Real Life, an alliterative name is a name in which the first and last names begin with the same sound. In more extreme cases, this can also include the middle name.

Giving a character an alliterative name is one of many ways a writer can make a name more interesting and catchy, which in turn makes the character more memorable to the audience. This is especially important in works with large Ensemble Casts, where extra help is needed to differentiate between them.

In comic books, this is especially true of the names of Super Heroes or their close hangers-on. It was a favorite tool of Stan Lee's, since, swarmed with projects, he often had trouble remembering the characters' names, and the alliteration worked as a mnemonic device. (Though it didn't always work perfectly — Lee occasionally referred to "Peter Palmer" and "Bob Banner".)

Of note to writers: Overusing this trope dilutes its effect, particularly if multiple characters have the same starting letters in their names.

A variation consists of downplaying the alliteration by having a prefix before the surname. Such as "Alice McAllister" or "Bob O'Brien."

In comic books, the Alliterative Name is often also Two First Names. In cartoons, it goes hand-in-hand with Species Surname.

See Alliterative Title, for work titles that do this. Compare Rhyming Names, in which the character's first and last names ends with the same sound. Repetitive Name is a more extreme variant.

Please note that Japanese names, though many may seem alliterative to an English-speaking audience, may not convey the same "alliterative power" in their original setting; syllables (and vowel sounds) matter more than letters in Japanese.

No Real Life Examples, Please! Even though this is Truth in Television, Real Life examples are much more common than they are in fiction and generally aren't meaningful enough to be added here. On the other hand, real-life examples for Alliterative Families are allowed, as they are much less common.

    Mysterious Myths & Remarkable Religion 
  • In Norse Mythology, Loki is generally referred to as "Loki Laufeyjarson." This is interesting because Laufey was the name of his mother, while his father was called Fárbauti. Most scholars assume that the Norse poets gave him a matronymic simply for the alliteration, as pretty much every other character uses their father's name. This actually makes some sense in the context of modern Icelandic use of the naming convention, the parents will usually go with whichever of their names sounds better when paired with -son and -dottir, so alliteration is likely a perfectly valid reason for Loki to be referred to that way, assuming the tradition held from an older one.

      • The first one was Madame Marjorie Mittermeier, creator of Madame Mittermeier's Fantastical Festival of Conundrums and Curiosities.
      • The second one came about because a writer needed to use Glamour's real name for something, couldn't remember it, and was unwilling or unable to look it up. "Well, it's something with M's... Melissa... Morris... yeah, that's it!" The Sentinel Comics editors didn't catch the mistake until it was too late to do anything about it, and eventually decided that Madame Mittermeier was still around and allowing Melissa Morris to use the name for whatever reason.
      • When Melissa Morris was found murdered in the 1980s, it was unclear for a while who was using the Glamour name now. The answer was eventually revealed to be Aislin Allen, who had been the hero The Shrieker for a brief time in the '50s (in fact, part of the original Freedom Four/Freedom Five) before being basically forgotten when that team fell apart.
