    I voted for Benjamin.  However, because they’re twins, what about giving BOTH boys one of their daddy’s names? Patrick _____________ and James _____________? That way, one twin would not be a junior while the other feels a bit “left out”?

    Maybe you could have Patrick Benjamin and James Nathanial or James Maxwell?  Just a thought.

    ETA: By the way, CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I totally forgot to add that while typing my response to the name question!

    @Brielle:  that’s exactly what I was going to suggest! Great idea!

     

    ETA sorry just saw your response OP so that makes sense. Also, I know you said you did’t want super popular names but I have more friends named Benjamin and Nathaniel that I can count on all of my fingers.

    I love Benjamin Patrick James, but then again I may be biased because my brother’s name is Benjamin Edward James haha (:

    I LOVE Nathaniel as a boy’s name so I like that one!

    Patrick James and Nathaniel… David? Timothy? Do you have any other significant names in your families to use for a middle name?

    I think that the name Benjamin would go really well with Patrick πŸ™‚ My second choice would be Nathaniel.

    @shimmerofheaven:  I know a lot of those too! It could be popular amongst our generation. I worked in a children’s program and they all had “different” names.

    I agree with the pp that suggested the names be split up…it seems weird to give one twin his father’s name and have nothing for the other. Since you don’t like James for a first name but are okay with it for a middle name, what if twin A was Patrick Middlename and twin B was Firstname James? Nathaniel James has a really nice ring to it.

    Benjamin has always been one of my favorite names, so I voted for that one. I love the name Ben.

    If you’re already set on Patrick, what about Phillip? Both P’s but different sounds so they aren’t so easily confused.

    I like the name Nathaniel as well, and it goes well with Patrick. Similar styles. I also think Andrew has a similar style.

    @shimmerofheaven:  Oh, I totally understand. I have names like that for me as well. Sorry. Just two more questions/comments about this idea, though. Did your cousin go by Jim? If so, perhaps you could consider Jamie as an alternative nickname for James? I’ve known several Jamie’s including the adorable little son of one of my friends.  Just thought I’d toss that out there. πŸ™‚  The second is, you could always call him by his middle name. I’ve known plenty of guys who have gone by their first initial and their middle names.

    @shimmerofheaven:  I love the name Benjamin, but unfortunately, I dated one years ago, so I’ll never be able to use it!  What about Benjamin Christopher?  Or possibly using your father’s name as the middle name?  Or maybe your maiden name?
