Ok, I gotta get this baby named! I think we will bond better with him and it will seem more real when I can call him something official other than DD's nickname for him: "Baby Star."

So far, we can agree on: Benjamin Cruz C_______ (Hispanic last name)

DD's name is Bria (Briana), so it would be Bria and Ben. My hang up is that I have a step cousin named Ben (that I never see) and it's too popular on the charts. Obviously, Bria isn't common at all, and that's why I like it. I chose Cruz because we have a Hispanic last name and it's gives it that Spanish flare so it's goes together and it's not popular so he can go by Cruz if he chooses to when he's older.

Other option is Benjamin James (James being my maiden name), but initials would be BJ!

Honestly, is it a keeper or should we keep looking? TIA!

I like Benjamin Cruz! Benjamin (Ben) isn't terribly popular around here and the fact that you have a fairly distant relative with that name wouldn't be a deal killer for me.

I like it, too. For us it was either Benjamin or Bennett. We chose Bennett because it isn't as popular.

I love Bennett too, but an old co-worker that I still see on FB named her son that 3years ago when we were preggo at the same time, and I don't care for HER, so I can't use the name! Great choice though! Very cute!

I really like Benjamin Cruz!!

Also, we are planning on naming our daughter Brianna, but still deciding on a middle name. Hubby is also Hispanic.

I like Benjamin Cruz! My niece has the initials BJ I kind of feel bad for her.

I really like Benjamin Cruz, too.

It's a very cute name for a little boy, and it suits a teenager, a young man and an adult.

I like the combo of classic Benjamin with untraditional and cool Cruz. I think it is a keeper!

Thank you guys so much! I hope DH will stick with it. Last night he said he still is iffy about Cruz, because it's so uncommon. Stop it! Let me have the middle name!!

I also like it.

I've given up on the family hang ups, we chose the name Emily for a girl. If this baby is a girl, she'll share a name with my first cousin and a half name with our niece. It's a name I've loved for years and always went back too, I can't get past it. So we let go of the closeness of our families and just went with it.

I like the Benjamin (adore this name!) Cruz. It's different but not so much
