    Is Corbin too similar to Benton?

    We have one son named Benton and we're expecting babe #2 in March. It's too early to know the gender yet (I'm thinking girl), but just in case it's a boy I'm considering some names. I really like Corbin Wolfe, but I'm worried that the Ben beginning of Benton and the bin ending of Corbin is too much. Some other names I like are....

    Ransom Charles
    Adrian Ward
    Harrison Wolfe
    Willem Charles

    Which one sounds best with Benton Grover? Any other suggestions?

    Stay at home mommy to Benton Grover and Arwen Elizabeth.
    Will be starting TTC baby #3 in July! At the top of the list for the new wee one are Thompson Bauer and Sylvan Nephele.

    Benton and Corbin are a bit similar. I think they could work, but I like the idea of something a bit more distinctive. I think Benton and Willem would be great, style wise and everything. Harrison's my favorite of the bunch, though, and I do think Benton and Harrison would be great for brothers.

    Good luck!

    I don't think Benton and Corbin are too similar for brothers. True, they are both 2 syllables and end in N, but they're not loaded with similar sounds--that N is really all they have in common. (Edit: Duh, and the B, too--no matter. They're still okay as far as I'm concerned.) I think they would work.

    Harrison is my favorite, though.

    Adrian and Harrison are too common next to Benton. I like Ransom but not with Benton. Willem Charles is nice but Corbin Wolfe is the best

    The "bin" in Corbin did stand out to me. I don't think that takes Corbin off the table, though.

    Ransom Charles gets my vote.
