    Reilly. Judah is a beautiful name but it doesn’t flow with Benjamin. 

    Benjamin Reilly sounds great!

    I like Benjamin Reilly. Benjamin Judah is just too much “j” for me, like trying to talk while eating peanut butter… But both are adorable ๐Ÿ™‚

    I like them both, but they are very different. Reilly is definately more trendy and Judah is very traditional with religious undertones.

    I like Benjamin Reilly, and personally I wouldn’t pick anything that would end up with BJ for initials because I got stuck with all sorts of boner jokes through school because of my name.

    I worked with a Rielly and there are tons of ways to mispell it. Also, I know more girls with that name than guys. It’s trendy like you and the pp have said, which would make me stray from it. 

    I think they both sound nice. I think I like Judah more. 

    Are there reasons for choosing those names or do you just like how they sound? 

    Reilly makes me think of Irish heritage (O’Reilly), and Judah makes me think biblical. 

    What about the initals. Do you like one more than the other? BR_ or BJ_?

    Good luck! Naming babies is so fun ๐Ÿ™‚
