Why is it comic book writers were obsessed with creating first and last names that started with the same letter ?

J Jonah Jamison
Reed Richards
Lex Luthor
Sue Storm
Matt Murdock
Bruce Banner

I guess because it's easier to remember, and probably flows more rhythmically…

Somebody started doing it not knowing what it was...and they'll keep on doing it forever just because.

What is the oldest character on that list (probably Lois Lane)? My guess is that the other comic book authors thought that it was a cool idea and emulated it.

Makes sense. I just think it's pretty funny how they did that and I never noticed when I was a kid who read comics like crazy.

On the same note (and kind of funny) one of the guys I used to work for (many moons ago) married a girl he met at a party....and when she took her new husband's last name she became Davalynn Durbin.

Oh man that is pricless. That one is better than that character Marcy on that old show "Married with Children" who married a guy named Steve Darcy and became (yes...) Marcy Darcy.

There was a girl in my high school that was a few years older than me. Her name was Holly Green. She married a guy by the last name of....you guessed it....Wood! She became Holly Wood.

When I played softball a million years ago, there was a gal on our team who's real birth name is Sandy Butts. We had lots of funny jokes when she'd have to slide into home base... heh heh

I've definitely heard his name before, I'm almost certain he wrote that book "Under the Bleachers".
