Per TRS, duplicate examples in derivative works should not be listed:
I think for Fan Work examples, we shouldn\'t list those who are already examples in canon. I noticed Pinkie Pie noted twice under the Fanfiction folder and it seems rather redundant to list them when they are already noted as examples in the canon folder.
The Fanfiction folder should be reserved for examples that are created by the authors of said fanfics (either an Original Character, a original alias, or an Adaptation Name Change) and not ones that are pulled directly from their home medium.
I agree — I would be surprised if there is not something about that buried somewhere in Admistrivia.
TRS decided in favor of not listing duplicates, as I put in my post.
It might be worthwhile to subdivide Real Life into those born alliterative, those who achieved alliteration and those who had alliteration thrust upon them.
Or rather, those born alliterative, those who alliterated by marriage, and those who assumed alliterative pseudonyms.
In TRS, I suggested just removing the section.
I'll post it here for now. We could move it back it that's a good idea.
Could this page be renamed as "Alliterative appellation"? For obvious reasons...
I JUST had this idea. PLEASE!
That would make it a Self-Demonstrating Article. But about 2/3 the population doesn't know the meaning of the word appellation.
Isn't that why they read these articles? Alliterative Appellation sounds like an awesome name for this page!
It's already a redirect, so you can use it to link here from elsewhere on the wiki. I expect it won't be changed, however, because it's (a) longer, (b) less clear, and (c) renames aren't usually done for wittiness points, however much better the suggestion is.
Please note that Japanese names, though many may seem alliterative to an English-speaking audience, actually do not convey the same "alliterative power" in their original setting; the Japanese language cares very little for syllabic symmetry, just like it does for rhymes the way we know them.
And, if one were to insist on alliterations, they should only be pointed to where whole syllables are identical. Hence, "Kitahara Kimiko" would be "alsyllabic", while "Komura Kenji" would not.
Should there be either a separate section (or trope page) for japanese names that are alliterative in japanese, or maybe cut down the animanga examples to just ones that are alliterative in japanese, you think?

How well does it match the trope?
