we’ve vs. got a vs. dilema

I have 3 boys already, Jacob Elliot (8), Luke Patrick (6) Harrison Jack and (4) and we found out last week we’re having another boy! Because we thought Harrison would be our last, we used the name Jack which we adore as his middle name. Now however, we want to name our latest addition Jack because we don’t like any other names as much. Would it be ok to name him Jack even though it’s Harrison’s middle name? if not, do you have any new ideas? Jacob is always called Jacob, never Jake, so the names being similar wouldn’t be an issue. thank you - Elle and Sean

I wouldn’t do it. But Jaxon would be alright. You could call him Jax. Or even Jack if you really want to.

I don’t think it would be a good idea to use Jack again because that is Harrison’s name and that will always be special to him.
What about:

I personally think Jack is too similar to Jacob anyway. So I wouldn’t use it.

DON’T do it---there are plenty of GREAT names out there!!! And Jack is SO overused these days. Consider:

Tate Alexander
Reid Thomas
Jude Nicholas
Simon Zachary
Lance Andrew
Thaddeus John
Oliver Reed

Just a bit of thought and imagination!!!

sorry Naiya, we don’t like any of your names but thank you all the same. Sean quite likes Reid but with the middle name Alexander, thank you poster 5. What do you think of Reid Alexander then?

Reid Alexander is lovely! Definitely short list that one!

It’s the only one on our list so far, Sean just came up with these below. He’s quite taken on the name Reid.

Reid Alexander
Reid Oliver
Reid Tobias
Reid Zachariah
Reid Christopher
Reid Aidan
Reid Finley
Reid Jackson
Reid Jamieson
Reid Jamie

what do you think? thank you - Elle and Sean (poll poster)

I think Reid Oliver or Reid Alexander.

I think it would be fine to use Jack, especially if Harrison never goes by Jack.
