Any and all appellations alluding to letters that are akin to one another.

Or put simply: An Alliterative Title is when all the words in a work's title begin with the same letter. This can be done for varying reasons or effects, but more often than not, it's a catchy, easy way to remember the name of a work.

Often coincides with Added Alliterative Appeal and Alliterative Name or even Author Appeal. Notice a trend?

Examples of Alliterative Title include:




Live Action TV

Manga and Anime


  • Benjamin Britten's Simple Symphony. The four parts have alliterative titles too: Boisterous Bourrée, Playful Pizzicato, Sentimental Sarabande and Frolicsome Finale.

Video Games

Western Animation
