Stealing Roman as I saw a thread on here and like it!

I already have a Reuben so could Roman be the brother?

There's a little girl in between!

Too matchy for my liking

I think it might get confusing when you're shouting for them!

Makes me think of Remulus and Remus!

Afraid not in my opinion, they're too similar.

Too similar IMHO.

Too similar I think.

I say yes for puppies or kittens, not so much for actual boys.

They are a bit matchy, although I like both.

No, not for human brothers.

I have cousins ( who are brothers) in their 30s called Alex and Andrew and I'm ashamed to admit I still get confused which is which. If only their names weren't so alliterative I could get my head around it but despite knowing them for 30+ years I still can't remember.

So they may get mixed up a lot if you go down this route!

I think they're too close.

Yes. They are similar, but I have heard worse for matchyness!

If you like them both, then why not.

They won't always be living together.

Just make sure they have different middle names if you are bothered.

Only if you are thinking of having them raised by wolves....!

Ideally, nay
