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!

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

My favourite is Reuben Jude so I was a but disappointed that someone thought it was too rhymey!

Think it will probably be Jude!

Thanks for all good wishes smile

Reuben Isaac

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

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 Spencer!

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 George

Reuben Isaac - love this!

IrnBruTheNoo Sat 26-Jan-13 12:05:52

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

AnAirOfHope Sat 26-Jan-13 11:46:35

Isaac Elias is my fav blush

ThedementedPenguin Sat 26-Jan-13 11:46:08

Honestly I disagree about initials. Nobody cares what initials you have. Maybe it's just where I'm from but seriously nobody cared.

My initials are R A M. So ram like a sheep or i.t. Seriously I think sometimes people over think this. I like Isaac.

Don't want to throw a spanner in the works but my brother's first name begins with R and surname with C and he was nicknamed RC all through school which quickly became 'arsey' and caused a fair bit of upset. Also my bil's initials are W.C so do think very carefully about initials!

Our yet to be conceived DS has been named Reuben for the last 5 years! It's a family name & I adore it. A little miffed that it seems to be getting quite popular on here lately tbh! Of your list I prefer George closely followed by Isaac. Our DS will be Reuben William after his dad. DD is only 8 weeks old so may be some time before he arrives! Good luck and congratulations. :-)

Isaac! Lovely combination.

Reuben Isaac is my favourite but I like them all except spencer. Best wishes for the safe and happy arrival of little Reuben soon!

thegreylady Fri 25-Jan-13 20:52:46

I like Reuben George best

Boomeringue Fri 25-Jan-13 20:49:49

Isaac

CaseyShraeger Fri 25-Jan-13 20:47:45

How many syllables is your last name, and which syllable has the stress on it?

Not overfond of Reuben, sorry - but it is way better than Spencer.

Jude Isaac or Isaac Jude

ImKateandsoismywife Fri 25-Jan-13 20:25:45

Jude or George smile
