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....
Which one sounds best with Benton Grover? Any other suggestions?~Cathryn Elizabeth~

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.

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.
