Beckett or Beckham

Keep going back and forth and just want to hear some thoughts! Middle name [name_m]Riggs[/name_m].

Beckett [name_m]Riggs[/name_m]

Beckham [name_m]Riggs[/name_m]

I’d go with [name_m]Beckett[/name_m], [name_m]Beckham[/name_m] is too loaded as football/soccer player [name_m]David[/name_m] [name_m]Beckham[/name_m] to me. But if you’re not in the UK you may not have the same strong association with the name.

I prefer [name_m]Beckham[/name_m]! [name_m]Beckham[/name_m] [name_m]Riggs[/name_m] is a fabulous name!

Definitely [name_m]Beckett[/name_m]!

Ooo, that’s tough. Both are great! I think [name_m]Beckham[/name_m] [name_m]Riggs[/name_m] flows a little more nicely, so I’ll go ahead and pick [name_m]Beckham[/name_m]. But I do love [name_m]Beckett[/name_m] too!

Beckett [name_m]Riggs[/name_m]!

I loved [name_m]Beckham[/name_m] but now all I associate it with is [name_m]David[/name_m] [name_m]Beckham[/name_m] and Bend it like [name_m]Beckham[/name_m]

David [name_m]Beckham[/name_m] is easy eyes though!

Another vote for [name_m]Beckett[/name_m]! It’s such a handsome, sweet name. I love [name_m]Beckett[/name_m] [name_m]Riggs[/name_m]!

Beckett has more fluid connotations, whereas [name_m]Beckham[/name_m] just seems so narrowly sports-oriented.

Seconding (thirding, fourthing?) the [name_m]David[/name_m] [name_m]Beckham[/name_m] connotation with [name_m]Beckham[/name_m]. I don’t think it helps the whole family is so famous, it seems like quite a loaded surname-name. So I’d go with [name_m]Beckett[/name_m] (plus I like the connotations more there - [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] [name_m]Beckett[/name_m] springs to mind for me).

Beckett [name_m]Riggs[/name_m] is so cool. I love the debonair, surname vibe that I get from it.

Beckett [name_m]Riggs[/name_m] is brilliant

Beckett [name_m]Riggs[/name_m] is just fabulous!

I vote [name_m]Beckett[/name_m]. I think the -t ending has just a little more personality (just my perception). And ditto what others have said said about the soccer player associations. Either one is handsome, of course, so you can’t go wrong.

Another vote for [name_m]Beckett[/name_m]!


Thank you all so much for the feedback! The [name_m]David[/name_m] association is definitely what was holding me back from loving [name_m]Beckham[/name_m].
[name_m]Beckett[/name_m] [name_m]Riggs[/name_m] was my first instinct and think we’re gonna stick with it :)))) the more I say it the more I love it!


I prefer [name_m]Beckett[/name_m] to [name_m]Beckham[/name_m], as [name_m]Beckham[/name_m] just feels very surname because of [name_m]David[/name_m] [name_m]Beckham[/name_m]. However, I think [name_m]Beckham[/name_m] [name_m]Riggs[/name_m] flows better.
