For years my husband and I have had this name debate. He wants our son to have his initials, BRH. The problem is we don't LOVE any B names and I don't want to give my kid a name that's just okay so he has the "right" initials. We had decided his name would be Emmett but now DH keeps bringing up the B thing.

So if you had to pick a B first name and R middle name... What would be the name you chose? (our last name ends in an "en/on" sound.

And while I love Benjamin, that's my husband and I don't want a junior.

Also, despite our daughter being named Lily (Lillian) I don't typically prefer popular/trendy names. She's named after my mom.

Thanks for the input!

I like Bennett, cause I like that it ends in the same 'ett' sound that Emmett does ... but I know it would get shortened to Ben like my husband and I don't want two.

Brett is probably my favorite B name... probably since it also has that 'ett' sound, but I was engaged to a Brett and that feels too weird for me.

I actually like the Blake Robert suggestion, especially because Robert is my stepdads name. I was about to text it to DH when I stopped to remember why that got nixed... That famous dude, Blake Shelton? Well that's our last name, without the S. haha.

My DH's name is Bryce Richard. Have you considered using Rhett as a middle name? That way you get the Brett sound, but aren't using an ex's name and can use an "R" middle name? I love the name Rhett. Some other "B" first names I like are Brody, Beau, Brock, Beck/Beckham. I just came across Baelen which I think is pretty cool and is a new one to me. I also think "Benji" is a really cute nickname if DH pushes wanting to use his name. I also don't like "Jrs", because I love baby names way too much to be too uncreative to not give my kid their own name. But I think Benji is cute and at least it won't be "Big Ben and Little Ben".

I've always loved the name Bodhi (Bo-Dee). Might be a little too out there for you, lol.

I love also love Bryce. Maybe Bryce Ryan? I love the name Ryan.

I totally get the junior thing my Beau is a Bla Bla Bla the third. Who needs two Wayne's?

I'd be bent out by having to match initals too.

I don't have any other options, but understand your frustration. Our boy name is Cameron and DH wants to spell it with a K since his name starts with a K. I nixed that one since its already a unisex name and K will make it more girly.

There is also Benedict...but that also gets shortened to Ben.

I would suggest a longer B name with a short R name.

Bradley
Brandon
Brendan?

Rex/Rhys/Ross?
