: I am driving myself crazy trying to remember the word that describes a person's name that has the same initials.....such as, Mickey Mouse, Henry Hudson, etc. Can anyone riddle me this? Thanks in advance.....

I don't know a word that applies strictly to names, but these names are alliterative. An alliteration is a repeating consonant sound; when a vowel repeats (how now brown cow), it's assonance.
