First name to go with Benjamin

    I’m trying to create some boy combos in case we ever have any more kids. We have three girls now (Allie Elizabeth, Lucy Carolina and Emma Catherine) and boys names have always been really hard. The only set combo we really like is Samuel Harrison. I’d love to use Benjamin somewhere but DH only likes it in the middle. What are some good first name options for it? Thanks!

    Leo, Miles, Levi, Micah, or Abram would all go well as first names with Benjamin as a mn I think, and would work with your girls’ names.

    Well I love Miles but Miles Watts sounds horrible I think…

    Funny, after all this time, it never occurred to me that that was your last name :-) It has a different feel to it, but Milo Benjamin maybe?

    It’s a hard last name to pair with I think. Oh well. :)

    Lots of people have suggested Milo but I just can’t seem to get into it…

    I’m not big on Milo either; to me (and much of the world outside of the US) it’s a chocolate drink. ;) Then there’s the Milo and Otis association. I confess I once found out a friend’s MN was Milo (years ago) and totally teased him about it. He wasn’t a big fan of it either. With current name trends I’m sure it would be better accepted but yeah, I can see why you’re not excited about it. ;)

    My thoughts:
    Henry Benjamin Watts
    Charles (Charlie) Benjamin Watts … I really love this one. :)
    Samuel Benjamin Watts
    Carter Benjamin Watts
    Edward Benjamin Watts
    Josiah Benjamin Watts
    Theodore/Theo Benjamin Watts
    Silas Benjamin Watts
    Lucas Benjamin Watts
    Simon Benjamin Watts

    I think God knew to give me all girls because I’m not getting excited about any of these boy names…

    Yeah, maybe that’s a sign. ;) I love a bunch of them.

    I think Nathaniel Benjamin Watts would be great. (Nns Nate, Nat, Than, or Thaniel)

    I typed up a reply but I guess it didn’t go through…..

    Anyway, my sister just named her new baby Bryant Nathaniel. ;)

    What about Elliot? Elliot Watts? Too close to Allie?

    Too close I think. Everett? Isaiah?

    Also, re: Samuel Harrison, it is awfully close to Sam Harris’s name. Not sure if that would bug you since he is one of the more famous anti-religion authors out there.

    I don’t think Elliot is necessarily too close. If they were your only two kids, or twins, I might think so.

    I really like it. BUT I like Benjamin Elliot better. Maybe if we were ever naming a real baby boy (like as in if I were pregnant with one), I could get him to come around to the name.

    I really like Benjamin Elliot, too. :)

    Maybe eventually he’ll come around. :)
