    Is this too close to our pet's name?

    Hi berries!

    We chose to honor my husband when we named our first son, and their names both start with the letter "r." I was thinking that if we have another boy, he might feel left out if his name doesn't start with the same letter. I was looking through r names recently and came across the name Rocco. I like the feel of it and it would honor my husband's Italian heritage.

    However, our family dog is named B0sc0. I realize that the sounds are pretty similar. What do you think? Are they too close?

    Thanks!

    They are definitely close, but not too close, to my mind.

    There are lots of great R names! Though I would say that if you're ever going to break this pattern, now would be the moment! I do love Rocco, but other options might be:

    Rory
    Remy
    Raphael
    Reid or Reed
    Rafferty
    Redmond
    Raymond or Ray
    Rhys
    Reuben

    Here's a link to our full list of R names for boys: http://nameberry.com/search/boys_names/R
