    I agree.

    I would suggest looking for other names, but if you really can't find something you like then consider it again.

    We do have a fairly set front runner (Andrew) for the next boy and dh is pretty set on it anyways. But being a name nerd I can't help but wonder what a 5th boy would be named and Luke seems so perfect.

    Since we don't see them much and they are in different generations, I'm not worried about confusion at all. And if dh wanted to honor his younger brother it would be awesome. This is more of a case of wanting to use a name that happens to be the same name as a family member.

    Maybe ask his brother if he would mind if the baby has the same name? If the brother's cool with it, I'd think you'd be good to use it.
