What do you all think about the name Benjamin (Ben) James.

Does it matter that the initials would be BJ?

I like Benjamin a lot. Not James though. It's annoyingly popular as a boy middle name.

I prefer Bennett to Benjamin, but it's a good name.

Benjamin is one of my favorites. We almost named our son that, but his middle name is Jeremy and DH refused to use "BJ"

I adore Benjamin. James is handsome, but a filler middle name. The initials BJ doesn't bother me.

I like both names but i wouldn't put them together, and i don't care for parents using short names when giving a long name. And BJ doesn't bother me either.

Oh thank you for posting this... DH and I LOVE a B name and we want the middle name to be James (for my dad) but I hate the BJ thing... This gives me some insight... THANK YOU!
