First name definitely Reuben, but which of these as a middle- dh and I can't decide and I don't want to discuss it with anyone else in RL! Please add any suitable alternative suggestions for us!

Reuben Jude
Reuben Arthur
Reuben Spencer
Reuben George
Reuben Isaac

Am sure there are so many more nice middle names but this gives you an idea of what we like!

DH's initials are TB. I always tease him about it, that his parents obviously weren't thinking straight after he was born!

Reuben George

my initials are V.I.P. but only since I got married, so a happy coincidence! DH actually included this in his wedding speech, it was very funny

we were always very aware to not choose names that'd spell out anything, but DS2 is SAP because we just loved the name combination so much! (he is Samuel Aaron)

based on all of this just choose the name you like, but check the initials don't spell out something stupid, rude or naughty (like AA or SS or PEE or BOG)

Reuben Spencer!

Definitely Reuben Jude. Strong and interesting.

Ignore PP who said it was too rhyme-y because it's not at all. It's actually the only one on your list that flows easily. The others are too clunky - too many syllables.

(Reuben George as a distant second contender after Reuben Jude!)

Thanks for everybody's opinion on this and glad not too many hmm at the name Reuben!
