    Default List as Many DC Characters with Alliterative Names as You Can

    Fun game time! Well, at least my lame definition of fun. List as many DC characters with alliterative names – names where the first letter of the first and last names either are the same letter or make the same sound – as you can.

    I'll start.

    Clark Kent
    Connor Kent
    Lois Lane
    Lucy Lane
    Lori Lemaris
    Lex Luthor
    Guy Gardener
    Wally West
    Kate Kane
    J'onn J'onzz
    M'gann M'orzz
    Silas Stone
    Rachel Roth
    Dinah Drake (Golden Age Black Canary)
    Zatanna Zatara

    I really don't know what's up with the Superman mythos and all of the "LL"s in his life.

    I think it was a theme initiated by Siegel and Schuster and later generations of writers just chose to run with it.

    Anyway, just thought of another: Buddy Baker

    It's still less than Marvel. But as long as we're including chosen identities, we can't forget the worst name ever...

    Red Robin
    Oh, and Wonder Woman

    Ronald "Ronnie" Roy Raymond


    Many of the supporting cast members from Firestorm's comic had alliterative names, such as: Clarissa Clemens, Cliff Carmichael, Doreen Day, Jefferson Jackson, Louise Lincoln, Ronnie Raymond, etc. This is similar to a permutation inherent in the Superman mythos where a large portion of his supporting cast have names with the intitials of double "L" (Lex Luthor, Lori Lemaris, Lois Lane, Lana Lang, Lucy Lane, etc.)

    Since he's part of the DCU now: Cole Cash aka Grifter. (alliterative AND a pun!)
