Naming our third son


I’m 31 weeks with my third son and my husband and I cannot agree on a name! We have two sons; Beau & Brody and we would have liked to stay in the B’s with this baby But we are struggling and open to suggestions!

I really like Brooks, Blake, or Cruz but my husband LOVES Bear! Any suggestions? Help, Input?!

The first that came to mind was Blake,  others Bryce, Bailey, Bennett, Byron, Benson, Bodhi, Boston, Banjo, Baxter, Baz, Benji, Blaze, Blaine, Bowie, Boyce, Bastian, Brayden, Brent, Bryson, Bradley, Brennan, Bram, Braith, Brant, Bryden, Brandon, Brock, Bryant

I prefer Brock to Brooks.  Bear can be a nickname

In my opinion Beau and Bear are too close for siblings. (I’ve also met a number of dogs named Bear, so it’s kind of doubly not a person name to me...) I agree that it could be a nickname. Of your list, I like Blake best.

Bastion, Bennett, Brant, Bram, Benson.

I think that Bear is a little too similar to your other names and it can cause some confusion. I think that you could use Barrett, and then he can call him Bear if he wants but there is a different name for him. Below are some other B names that could work: 

Booker, Branch, Bard, Bane, Baxter, Bastian, Bryant, Bram, Bran, Bentley, Bruno, Beckett, Benji, Benjamin, Bennett, Bodhi, Bailor, Barnes, Barron, Basil, Baz, Beck, Benson, Bishop, Blaine, Bosco, Braddock, Brandon, Brendon, Brennon, Braylon, Brayden, Brent, Brett, Bruce, Buddy

Bear works better as a nickname or a dog name.

I like Brooks better, but Blake goes better with your other two (Brooks and Brody repeat the Br- sound). Cruz is nice but obviously breaks the B pattern if you're okay with that.
