    Current B/G/B sibset crush: Owen, Lila, and Jude.
    In reality, if I had two more boys they would be: Miles Anderson and Julian Byrne (family names).

    Literally pronouncing the Hebrew, רְאוּבֵן, is r'ooh-vain. Meh, just stick with roo-ven.

    It's 2.5 syllables. I doubt anyone who isn't Jewish would know that though, everyone will just see Reuben-with-a-v.
