    I would go with Kepler Jackson. It has been a name you both have loved for a long while. You might regret not using it. Kep is a sweet nickname.

    Exactly what Mischa said. I think Kepler is the right choice in this instance. Good luck

    I like Kepler better. "Kep" is a cute and fun nickname, while Kepler will look great on a resume when he grows up. I like how Kepler is unusual enough to stand out and be remembered, but not too unusual.

    I do like Parker fine, but I don't think that the initials "P.P." are going to go over well at school some day, you know?

    Nameberry is not the best place to come to with unique (i.e. modern invented) names, either. But I vote for Kepler. I think Kep is a great nickname!

    I like Parker more for a girl for some reason. I guess because I like Parker Posey and also my friend's beautiful daughter.

    Kepler is the name of a brilliant Renaissance astronomer and scientist - what an awesome namesake. There's a NASA observatory named after him. That's what I thought of when you mentioned the name. If I met a young Kepler, I'd be very impressed.

    I think that if you are certain you want two kids, then you should use Kepler for this baby, and Parker for the next - they make a really wonderful sibset, because they share so many of the same letters and sounds, yet they couldn't be mistaken for one another. And they are both surnames, both two syllables. A really perfect pair. Of course, if you want more than two kids, it might be tricky to find a name that fits in with your existing two names.

    Best wishes!

    p.s. I'm a fan of alliteration, so don't see the PP thing as an issue... but if you like a name starting with I for a middle, it could get you to the sweet nickname Pip - cute for a young girl or boy.
