Middle name and Little Bro for Sequoia
So hubby and I will be TTC later this year. He comes from a family of 4 boys, and I am concerned that if I end up repeating his mom's pattern, subsequent boys will end up nameless since I really only have one boy name I completley in love with, which is Sequoia.
Looking for suggestions for a middle name (particularly starting with B, D, J and V) for Sequoia
I've tossed around Brannon, Jonathan, Kevin (my dad's name) and Venture as options
and also a name for potential younger brother ( I used to like "Lyric", but am not so sure anymore)
last name single syllable starts with "L"
It's okay if you don't like the name Sequoia, but I respectfully request not to hear about it in this thread, since I won't be changing my mind - it has felt right to me for a long time. Thanks!!!

Sequoia/Sequoyah is a very worthy namesake, especially if you're Cherokee. I think it leans a bit feminine and it's a very daring choice, so I think something more common and masculine would balance that. I like Jonathan and Kevin a lot. I think Venture is too much with the first name. Other suggestions:

With a more unusual, softer-sounding name like Sequoia, I'd ground it with a more common, masculine middle name. I agree with Daisy that Sequoia Jonathan and Sequoia Kevin work very well.
For a brother, I'd stick with something soft and wordy.

Sequoia seems a bit feminine to me. Lyric is generally a feminine name... I'd avoid that. BDJV
