Ok hubby and I agreed on a name but now I'm rethinking.

We had decided on Brayden Christopher.

However, I keep coming back to the name Christian. I love it.

But, it is my 6 year old's middle name.

All of my kids names are: Alexander Christian, Cadence Elizabeth, and Ethan Christopher. Technically if we name the baby Brayden Christopher we are reusing a middle name anyways. We never call any of the kids by their first AND middle names...so its not like it would CONFUSE anybody. Alex did say we could use his middle name as long as we didn't use his first name as well lol.

So, what would you do? Would you veer away from Christian simply because it's already been used as one of their middle names? Or just go ahead and use it if everyone agrees?

Momma to Alex (2005), Cadence, (2008), Ethan (2010), Brayden (2012), and Adrianna Elise due September 19th 2014

Stepmom to two (2006, and 2009).

just for me I would veer away from a name that I had already used. My son's middle name is Bradley and I so wish we hadn't already used it because I would name this little boy Bradley, but DH is absolutely against reusing the name.

I do love Christian though so I completely understand your dilema.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I would veer away from it as well, but we also call both girls by their first and middle names fairly often.

i dont see anything wrong with it. DH is Charles Matthew and his brother is Matthew Wade, its never caused any confusion. His dad is also a Charles, as well as our son. I dont see reusing names as necessarily a bad thing as long as you are happy with the decision.

I wouldn't do it, but we also use first and middle name a lot with DS. Plus, I like the individuality that comes with a name.

I wouldn't do it personally. I feel their names are what makes them individual as well.

But if you and DH and your other son feel comfortable with it that's all that matters

Thanks PrincessMom08 for my wonderful siggy!

I wouldn't reuse a name in siblings (unless it was to honor a sibling that had passed).
But I have also seen families that use the same middle name for all the kids. And we use family names which others have an issue with. So I would do what ever you feel the right name is!

I wouldn't reuse a name for another child... It's one thing to use a parents name but not a siblings name. I wouldn't use Christopher either as that is another siblings name too. Just my opinion!
