I love the name Miles! I had a boss who had an absolutely adorable baby boy named Miles. I think Miles and Everett sound great!

I don’t think you’re going to find a name you’ll like better than Oliver… DH’s 2nd cousin isn’t the end all, be all to the name Oliver; there were hundreds of thousands of Olivers before their baby, and there will be plenty more after their baby. Stick with Oliver if that’s the name you love. 🙂 Why choose a name you don’t like as much? It doens’t make sense…

I have a fairly small extended family, but I’m super close with my second cousins.  However, second cousins are your parents cousins, so it seems weird that they would be having kids at the same time as you.  That doesnt really matter though.  There are third cousins in my family that I consider closer than my first cousins and I wouldn’t dream of naming my kids the same name, but if I weren’t close, then it wouldn’t matter.  What’s your husbands relationship with his second cousin?  If you are truly heartbroken over this, and they’re not close, go with your heart. You won’t regret it.  There is only a 25% chance of this being an issue though, right?  Just to be nosy, what are your girl/girl and boy/girl name combos?

I personally think that you should still stick with Oliver if that’s the name that you both loved….especially if it’s a second cousin that’s using it.  But if you are not comfortable using it I love Owen!
