    OH and I could only agree on 2 boys names when our son was born. We named him Christian Samuel, now I'm worried were gonna have another boy. We've discussed naming the next one Sampson, but is that too close to LO's middle name? Would it be weird? OH jokingly said we could name the next one Samuel Christian.

    please dont reverse the names lol

    Sampson is fine and not too similar, especially not if Sampson is a 1st name

    you first son will only be known to most as Christian and your second as Sampson as most people dont even know middle names

    if you want to keep the names similar you could use:

    Sampson Christopher

    No I wouldn't allow OH to switch them and call it good lol. :haha: We just really love the nickname Sam and wanted a way to use as a first name.

    I don't think its too similar. They both do have the prefix of Sam but honestly how often are middle names used anyway? You should name the 2nd one Sampson Christopher haha :)


    EDIT aw someone already said that. :( lol

    I don't think they're too similar either, for the same reasons; people never know middle names or go by them unless someone happens to ask or at a wedding etc.

    I think you're fine :) x
