I know. I'm back again. 

We have a 2 year old named Peter Joseph and his brother is due on Christmas Eve. 

We're still playing around with other names, but we mostly keep coming back to Edwin Asher and Philip Edwin (Edwin is a family name). 

Thoughts regarding which you like best?

    Philip is way better than Edwin.  

    Edited:  I don't mind the two P names as Philip gives the f due to the ph sound whereas Peter gives the P sound, so that doesn't bother me at all.

  • I much prefer Philip
  • I like both equally, but voted for Edwin because it is a family name.......I love keeping family names in the family.

    Two P names is a bit theme-y, but i prefer Philip over Edwin. 

    ETA: auto-correct fail correction.

    I normally would avoid a P name, especially if it had the same sound as Peter, but the fact that Phillip doesn't sound like Peter is what makes it work for me. 

    This is our last planned child, but if we have a third, I will avoid a P name.

  • I don't care for either. What about Asher Edwin?
