We need some help....

DS1 - Jackson

DS2 will be here soon with no name we can agree on.

Which do you like better... Harrison or Liam?

Jackson and Harrison

Of your options I’d choose Liam, simply because I don’t think I would do two names ending in ‘son.

Jackson and Harry is good though. Or Harris (which I love).

Liam is a good strong name. Very popular around my parts (but then so is DS1’s name, so I don’t necessarily think that has to be a negative).

Jackson and Evan
Jackson and Matthew (Jack and Matt might be a bit same same though?)
Jackson and Caleb
Jackson and Thomas

I wouldn't choose Harrison because they both end in 'son'.
So Liam is better.

I would go Harry rather than Harrison so they both aren’t ending in ‘son’.

Liam is a great name too.

Jackson and...

Angus (Gus)
Everett (Rett)

I'd say Liam. But thats my DS name so I'm naturally bias lol - we used to call him 'jackson' as his rockstar name when mucking around. So they go well together lol.

All my boys names end in 'an' so I'm not against the same name endings :) However I love the name Liam more than Harrison.

Other options:

Liam. I wouldn’t use two -son endings. Plus I much prefer Liam as a name anyway.

Is a good short easy name, the sort I like and I'm not  a great fan of Harrison anyway.

And both ending in Son is bit much. I'm not against names ending the same but Son is quite a distinctive  ending, both being 'son of' surname origin names.

Something like Jackson and Alison ( hypothetical if you had a girl ) doesn't seem as samey to me as Alison isn't a son of surname origin name.

Does that make sense??

If you like Harry on its own, you could use that instead of Harrison.

I like Liam, but another 'h' option is Hamish - my DS is Hamish and I always get loads of compliments on his name. Not common but well known and easy to spell.
