Boy #3 will have no name

We are expecting baby and boy #3 and we are at a loss. It was hard to name our second and he didn't even have a name when he was born. This is even harder!! Siblings are Benjamin and Bradley. We've talked about Jacob Collin and Luke but we don't really get the happy feels with any of them. Any suggestions would be great!!

  • @Mamabeagle Benjamin was an old family name that we just fell in love with. And Bradley came out of nowhere. We just liked the name. Not a "B" theme going though. We like more traditional/older names. Also, we got rid of a ton because we hate the nickname possibilities. We loved William but hate bill or Willy. We likes Charles but hate chuck. It's so hard!!!

  • I know that you said that you don't have a 'B' theme going and I don't know if this is potentially your last baby, but personally it would bother me if two were 'B's' and the third/last was different. 

    That being said, I like Jacob and pp's suggestions of nn Liam for William. 

    If if you want some other 'B' names:
    Brady
    Brandon
    Brian
    Brooks

  • I think Luke sounds great with your boys. Other names I could see working would be Blake, Samuel, William, and Charlie. ❤️

    My 3 year old has friends named William. Two of them go by Will and ine just William. He also knows a Charles that goes by Charlie.

    If you otherwise love those names, i think you could still use them. I don't think many people use the Bill, Willy or Chuck nicknames anymore!
