We have 2 boys, Graham Charles and Oliver Bennett. We have baby boy #3 on the way and I am really struggling with names this time.

Names I have considered are Henry Theodore and Leo ?. I thought Henry Theodore was great, but my husband is hesitant for some reason. I did date a guy named Ted, but that was his name. His name wasn’t Theodore, but maybe that precludes me from using it anyway?

My first son’s middle name is after a grand and great grandfather, both with great faith. Bennett means blessed. I like the idea of a faith inspired middle name without being a technical Bible name (I want them to be their own people), but that’s getting tough. This baby is definitely a wonderful blessing.

I wasn’t stressed about the names of my last two, this time I’m quite stressed! Boy names are tough!

I have no idea but can I just say that Graham is such a cool name! Do you nn him Gray?
In the same vein, imo, is Colin. Brilliant name.

Oh I love your boys' (DCs 1 and 2) names! I have a Theodore (we nearly called him Henry). So OF COURSE I have to go to bat for your splendid choice of name: Henry Theodore.

What about Benedict as a 'faith-ish' name? It's Bennett with that Latin twist so you're again paying homage to someone important in the family without using the same (middle) name as DC1.

Graham is indeed such a cool name. I grew up with a boy named Trent and his brother Graham.
