    LOVE the girl choices! Maeve is one of my favorites but hubby doesn't like it so I'm trying to "forget" it thus why it's no longer on my signature.

    Anyway, as far as Benjamin goes, aside from Ben, Benny and Benji, some more far-reaching nicknames could be Enji, Jam, Jamie, Benno, Jin... I have heard of someone calling their Benjamin "Banks."
    Mom to Nora Cathleen.

    Current favorites:
    Declan (Decs/Dex). Miles (Milo). Dean. Euan. Ronan. Dexter (Dex). John (Johnny). Max. Finn. Reid.

    Gwyneth (Gwen). Elise. Bronwen (Bonnie). Mary. Piper. Josephine (Josie). Iris. Margot. Sylvie. Edith (Edie).

    Thanks Maeve has been on our list since I was pregnant with Frankie, we've just been waiting to use it (and had given up on it, but now I have some hope again!).

    I just realized that Huck & Chuck rhyme, so that's out. Ugh! It's the one name I've found that felt so perfect. Hmm, I like Jam but am not so sure my husband would go for that. Do you think Jem could work? I guess it's a bit of a stretch... I like the suggestion of Dexter, but I'm worried it doesn't quite fit in our set, thoughts? I feel so wishy-washy & difficult, lol!

    I think Jem could work for Benjamin. It's usually a nickname for Jeremy or Jeremiah - not sure if either of those tickle your fancy. I like Dexter with the nn Dex but I'm also not sure it "fits" with your boys' names. I'm really liking Miles/Milo, Edward/Ned or Wesley/Wes personally.

    Here's a few more ideas:
    Leland (Lee)
    Laurence/Lawrence (Law, Laurie)
    Clifford (Cliff, Ford)
    Everett (Rhett)
    Isaac (Ike - too close to Huck?)
    Andrew (Drew)
    Cornelius (Neil)
    Sylvester (Sly)
    Maxwell (Max)
    Lionel (Lio/Leo - too close to Linus?)
    Nicholas (Nico, Cole, Nich as in pronounced phonetically not like Nick)
    Oliver (Ollie)
    Mitchell (Mitch)
    Marshall (Mars, Marsh)
    Julius (Jules)
    Raphael (Rafi)
    Abraham (Abe, Abram)
    Vincent (Vin, Vinnie, Vince)
    Bartholomew (Bart)
    Cormac (Cory, Mac)
    Tobias (Toby)
    Mom to Nora Cathleen.

    Current favorites:
    Declan (Decs/Dex). Miles (Milo). Dean. Euan. Ronan. Dexter (Dex). John (Johnny). Max. Finn. Reid.

    Gwyneth (Gwen). Elise. Bronwen (Bonnie). Mary. Piper. Josephine (Josie). Iris. Margot. Sylvie. Edith (Edie).
