A Brother for Owen?

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] all,

I am expecting my second boy in a few short weeks and I need help choosing his name. My first son is [name_u]Owen[/name_u] and we easily decided on his name long before we even tried for him.

So far at the top of my list are [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] ([name_m]Ben[/name_m]) and [name_m]Connor[/name_m]. I also like [name_m]Eli[/name_m], [name_u]Evan[/name_u], [name_m]Graham[/name_m], and [name_u]Theo[/name_u] for inspiration.

We are also most likely not done having kids (hopefully just one more), but I want to save my girl name ([name_u]Emerson[/name_u]) for the last kid.

So I’m looking for ideas of boy names that go well with [name_u]Owen[/name_u] and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]. Thoughts on [name_m]Ben[/name_m] vs [name_m]Connor[/name_m] or other suggestions?


I like O.wen, T.heo and E.merson together.

I would not use [name_u]Owen[/name_u] and [name_u]Evan[/name_u], because I believe the two names are closely related.

Perhaps [name_m]Connor[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m]?? I think it would make a great addition to your sibset

[name_m]Graham[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] would be my second favorite

Between your top two, I feel like [name_m]Connor[/name_m] is a better match for [name_u]Owen[/name_u]. [name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_m]Connor[/name_m], & [name_u]Emerson[/name_u] would make a great sibset!

Other suggestions:

I really like the pp suggestion of [name_m]Miles[/name_m].

[name_m]Miles[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] or [name_m]Miles[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] would be great.

O.wen, Mile$ and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]

I like the long O sound in [name_u]Owen[/name_u] and the long I sound in [name_m]Miles[/name_m], yet [name_u]Emerson[/name_u] has all short vowel sounds.

I like [name_m]Graham[/name_m] best from your list. [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] feels more traditional than the other too, but it’s a classic so it could work. I’m not a huge fan of [name_m]Connor[/name_m]. I also like [name_m]Bennett[/name_m] from pp, and I’ll add [name_u]Barret[/name_u].

My favorites from your list are probably [name_m]Graham[/name_m] and [name_u]Theo[/name_u]! Here are some other ideas:

[name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_u]Arlo[/name_u], and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_m]Holt[/name_m], and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_m]Rhett[/name_m], and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_m]Penn[/name_m], and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_m]Henry[/name_m], and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_m]Asher[/name_m], and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_u]Laurence[/name_u], and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_m]Wyatt[/name_m], and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_u]Reilly[/name_u], and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_u]Gardner[/name_u], and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_u]Tate[/name_u], and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_m]Nate[/name_m], and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_u]Jace[/name_u], and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_u]Christo[/name_u], and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_m]Oliver[/name_m], and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_u]Carter[/name_u], and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]

I hope this helps! Good luck on your search!

[name_m]Graham[/name_m] gets my vote!
