Brother for Joseph
Hello! We have a son named Joseph and are having trouble deciding on a name for his baby brother due in November. Joseph goes by Joseph. I do love the nickname Joe, so I'll be perfectly happy if he decides to go by Joe in the future. I want to like both the full name and the nickname(s) of the name we choose for baby brother. We'd like either a Biblical name or a saint name.
Our last name begins wtih Ke- and ends with -er. We'd like to avoid first names ending with "-k" or "-er"
Following are the names we have considered:
Augustine - pronounced a-GUS-tin; was my favorite, now not sure; pretty sure people would have difficulty with pronunciation; don't like Gus or Augie
Thomas - my dad's name (died when I was three, will use as middle name if not for first name), don't like Tom
Samuel - feel awkward saying Samuel, love the nickname Sam
Simon - go back and forth; feels more hip than I'd like
Peter - like and like Pete, but ends in "er" like our last name
Benjamin - just doesn't feel like the name
Peter - like the name and like the nickname Pete, but ends in "-er" like our last name
Thanks for your help!
