if his brother's name is Kaiden. Well, my husband and I finally agreed on Caleb but the more we say it, we realise that it is very similar to Kaiden.
Do you think that is a problem and if so, why? Maddox is the other one we can agree on more so than others but fear it might be too out there. I have always loved Caleb from a little girl and Maddox is just different and we like different.

Really? I thought it was still a pretty unique name.

I know a very cute Lennox.Which is Scottish in origin I think.

Thanks, I like Lennox and Luke.

Do you think Caleb and Kaiden are way too alike?

Not the answer you're hoping for, but I do think they are too similar, yes.

If you really love Caleb you could use it as a middle name?

I love Caleb but I agree with you- it sounds very similar to Kaiden. Maddox is nice too.

Yep, too alike, stick with your instinct! Also, I think Caleb will be as popular as Jack is now in 5/10 years. Hundreds of 'em poppin' up! Lennox - lovely, and different.

How about Jago? My DS1 is called Harry and by the time he was 4, when DS2 came along, there were loads of Harry's.... so we decided on Jago and I love it! Only ever met one other. People assume it's made up or modern but actually it's an old Cornish version of James smile
