    This, completely.

    If I heard it on the playground, I'd honestly think I misheard it. Some word names sound like they could be names (River, Olive, Sage) and some, like this one, do not. This is obviously just one stranger's opinion though!

    If you say this sentence out loud I think you'll realise this is a bad idea...

    I agree with the others who said Parker Benjamin nn Parks might be better if you're worried.

    Honestly, I think I would prefer just Park. Parks feels plural and too word-like. Like naming someone Gyms.
    I like Park alright because it's similar to Mark or Lark. It maintains the spirit without being an entirely different name, but is easier to swallow for me.

    I like the idea of Benjamin Parks.
    Because it's a family name, my default is to keep it as-is. But Benjamin is such a good name. Parks Benjamin sounds good too, I just think that if you're hesitating Benjamin Parks is safer.

    I am so tempted to instantly nickname him Sparky. But that's just me.
