Okay, thanks to EB we are going to name our baby boy to be Benjamin! (Nn Ben, Benny and/ or Benji). I also saw the cutest Benjamin Bunny plush toy the other day
Our final decision is out of two middle names:
- Benjamin William Henriks
- Benjamin Clyde Henriks
Both are family names. Thank you!!!!

I like the flow of Clyde better, the single syllable sounds better than two as Benjamin is already a long name.

Clyde sounds like a American hillbilly name (totally stereotypical I know).

I would have to choose Benjamin William.
Although, if the other choice was Benjamin Clive instead of Clyde, I would have chosen Benjamin Clive.

I'll say it again- i have a Ben William.....nuff said.

Given both are family names, I'd go for Clyde.
No one will ever question why his second name is William, given it's been the first or second name for gazillions of boys since Prince William. They might ask him about Clyde, though, and he may love to tell people why he's been gifted that name.

O dear...I thought you were asking about using the name Poll for a middle name... As in, Pol Pot...in which case I was going to say the connotations aren't great....

I love that both are family names!
I vote Clyde, and leave William as a possible first name option for a future baby boy 👦

Hard choice, I like Clyde it’s a bit refreshing. William is lovely but fairly common.

Clyde, because it really sounds like the tradition of naming after someone, being that bit out of fashion.

“Benny Clyde” reminds me of Bonnie and Clyde! My vote is for William
