I hope you all are not annoyed with me yet. Still trying to decide on baby #5's name- we like biblical names.



Any opinions on the names Rufus or Reuben/Ruben?



(brothers would be ben, isaac, josh and joel). thanks!

Neither. Reuben makes me think of a sandwhich, and Rufus a dog. Sorry. :(

Ruff Ruff === Rufus



Reuben does make me think of the sandwich, but better a sandwich than a dog...
