I ADORE Samuel and Benjamin! SOOO Handsome! Andrew is a nice classic but I just have bad connotations with the name personally. Of the middles, Travis is really the only one that's my style as Miller and Gaines are bit to surname like but all round nice. Samuel Travis and Benjamin Travis are super cute and handsome!

I like Samuel Travis, Andrew Miller, and Benjamin Gaines (wasn't that the name of the Nick Cage in National Treasure?)

Thanks for the suggestions on combos!!! We are really leaning towards Travis in the mn spot, but not set on it yet. Travis is my mom, yes, my mom's name. She was named after her AUNT Travis. Weird, I know. Miller is my maiden name. So, yes, very surnamish and definitely where it came from! Gaines is a family name. It was initially a surname in the family, back about 4 generations. At that time my great, great, great grandmother gave her son her maiden name "Gaines" as a middle name. He then passed it to his son, who passed it to his son, who passed it to his daughter (my aunt). Then, I have several cousins who inherited it as a middle name. So, lots of history with that name!

I adore Travis as a middle. It would work for any of the firsts. My favorite first name is Benjamin.

My favourite as a first is Benjamin.

I do also love Samuel and like Andrew (Though I prefer Drew). :wub:


As for the middle names, I think Miller is my favourite. But since all three have meaning to you, I don't think you can go wrong!

Thanks. If we name him Andrew, when the name did get shortened, it would be Drew and not Andy. I would say we don't plan on shortening it. But, I know myself and he will get called by a nickname occasionally! Benjamin would definitely be Ben and Samuel would be Sam or Sammy.

I like Benjamin and Andrew. Samuel is cute as well.

Benjamin Miller
Andrew Travis
Samuel Gaines

I love these combinations they work well together I think at least. Good luck in choosing a name!

Benjamin is my favorite from your list of first names. Andrew and Samuel aren't bad though. I'm not really fond of your middle name options, but Benjamin Travis has a nice ring to it.

My favorite is Benjamin and I love Samuel as well. I'm not a fan of Andrew, mostly because of personal reasons with multiple people I know with that name, and because it's so common! But it is a nice, classic name. And I agree with the first poster's name combos as well!
