I have a little boy named Kaiden and a baby boy that has yet to be named. We love Caleb and like Jacob a lot. Which one do you think is best?

I like them both but I prefer Jacob. I would like to call a DS Jacob but DH said no sad

Caleb, I love this name!

I like them both, but would find Kaiden and Caleb too similar, so would go for Jacob.

Prefer Jacob. Caleb sounds rather clunky.

I love Caleb but DH won't let me have it sad

we also find them similar but are they really that bad together if we love the name? What do you think

both nice names but Kaiden and Caleb are too similar - Jacob better.

I like my kids to know who's being shouted at called grin

I love Caleb, but then I actually love the shortened 'Cal' even more. I suppose it depends whether you would call both your sons by their full names or both by shortened names? As in, Caleb and Kaiden sound similar, and Cal and Kai sound similar, but Caleb and Kai sound different enough...

the best is Jacob!
