    Reuben?

    Our kids are James and Leah. We love biblical names. We’re expecting a boy, and our favorite is Reuben. However I feel it kind of rhymes with our last name. Our last name sounds like ABE-lyn
    Or is it not a big deal if it’s somewhat melodic?

    I personally would not use it as it is too rhymey, although Reuben is a wonderful anme. I would pick another Biblical names. There are plenty of them. My youngest son is Stephen Paul Jonathan. My older is Michael andrew.

    Oh man, Reuben is perfect for you guys and is a great name, but I do see what you mean on the rhyme aspect. I don't think it is a huge deal though. It doesn't sound bad.

    If it still sticks in your mind, how about Roman? It takes away some of the rhyme aspect, though not all.
