Help me analyze these boy names

I've been driving myself crazy over baby names, and so far I think I've narrowed it down to Benjamin (nn Ben) or Grant. So it will be either Benjamin Grant or Grant with a random middle name I think of. I don't like Benjamin as a middle name.

Recently, I was turned off of Ben when I found out my husband's step sister has a fiancé with that name. I'm also concerned about initials since our last name begins with an S, which would make it BS. I might be able to get over those issues, though.

Even with those issues, I can't say that Grant is the one. Benjamin seems more timeless with a strong history behind it. However, Grant is simple and easy to say and spell. I think he'll fit in better with kids in our area if he has a name like Grant.

So....I don't know! What do I pick?

I like Ben better, but then again I picked William... I like timeless boy names.

Same here - I like Benjamin better, and the baby I'm due with is also being named William and we go with timeless names for our kids. lol

William is nice too. It is our current son's middle name :)

I like Grant. I feel like it is less common.

I love Grant...it is one of our top picks for a boys middle name. I think Benjamin Grant is great!

My oldest son's name is Logan Grant and my soon to be born son is Grayson William-I like timeless boys names as well. Grant isn't really used as much.
