We were going with Jasper James but someone I know has just called their baby the exact same name so feel like I should have a different middle name at least.

Jasper Benjamin? Or other suggestions?

Jasper Benjamin is fab, a lovely choice!

I am old and I just think 'Jasper Carrott'. Plus in the Midlands a Jasper is a wasp.

But none of that may be relevant to you. I quite like Benjamin though.

Love it.

AuntieStella Wed 01-Feb-17 17:19:47

I think it's lovely

Sounds like a posh Wedgwood teaset!
Personally, I'd just turn your original choice around and make it James Jasper. Boring (non embarrassing) name first, then something a bit more original.

I'm betting on my MIL mentioning the Jasper Carrot connection! But then there's always a famous person or character with both names so that doesn't really bother me.

Don't really want a boring name and got a load of James' in the family anyway.

Love Jasper Benjamin and Jasper James. I wouldn't change the name just because someone you know (only distantly IIRC) has used it though. Only change the middle if you genuinely want to.

Love Jasper!

Middle names get so rarely used that you can choose almost anything really, maybe a name with family meaning.

I also find James quite dull. Fine as a middle name but Jasper is much more interesting as a first name!

Love the name Jasper! I also remember Jasper Carrot but it wouldn't spring instantly to mind after all these years.

What about Jasper George?

KellyElly Wed 01-Feb-17 18:34:18

Such a cool name!

Itsworldwar3outthere Wed 01-Feb-17 18:35:57

Jasper John?
Jasper Jake?

I like Jasper Benjamin but I think it flows better the other way around.

Jasper George flows well but I prefer Benjamin as a name.

Jasper John?

Jasper William

I saw your other thread and I did think 'how about Jasper Ben' instead, so yes I think that's a great name!

Jasper Alexander
Jasper Joel
Jasper Luke

Jasper George is fab too!

Like Jasper George or
Jasper Flynn

maitaimojito Thu 02-Feb-17 16:36:26

Love Jasper.

I actually think Benjamin sounds better than James as a middle name. The majority of under 10 boys I know have James as a middle name so I'd go with something different.

I've got a Jasper David.

KlingybunFistelvase Thu 02-Feb-17 17:16:14

I prefer Jasper Benjamin to Jasper James actually. Really nice!

Sophronia Thu 02-Feb-17 23:33:44

Jasper Benjamin is nicer than Jasper James

Jasper Benjamin is bloody gorgeous.
