We already have a Jon and need to name a brother.

We think we're down to either Thomas Vincent (Surname beginning with B) or Benjamin Vincent (Surname beginning with B). The Vincent bit is historical so just wondering about the first name really. We can't agree on any other names, I love William or Edward but DH says no!

I prefer Ben as it means ' youngest son' plus I've heard 'your John thomas' referred to as a name for a penis grin and know I'd think of that if I heard you shouting your kids name in a park, etc
Also just love Ben, I wanted it but DH said no ...

I prefer Benjamin Vincent smile

Oh and I LOVE Vincent ( more than Thomas or Benjamin !) it was my ggd's name ...

Would you not use Vincent as a first name I love it

No Vincent can't be the first name, it's a family thing. I'd thought of the Jon Thomas thing too, but I suppose I'd be calling Jon Tom instead!

I prefer Benjamin.

I really like Vincent - would be a great first name.

Benjamin Vincent sounds better with Jon.

Vincent's a great name. I've always loved it. Not my surname at all. ;-)

I prefer Benjamin I think.

What does Ben sound like with your surname?

My DP has a four letter surname beginning with B. Benjamin sounds great,Ben emphatically does not. I only ask because people will call him Ben,even if you and DH do not.

I prefer Thomas, Benjamin and Ben always sounded a bit wet to me

Jon and Tom - sound too similar sorry

I'm a bit sick of the name Ben. I prefer Tom.

"Jon, Thomas!" will invite sniggers (whichever way round you call them, others are bound to see it the penis way): "Jon, Tom!" is too near a rhyme.

I'd go for Ben.

Benjamin definitely. Love William and Edward too.
