So, I haven't had a gender U/S yet but just thinking about things... :) I have a feeling DH will veto all three so it may not even matter... but.... Which do you like best to go with big brother Benjamin:

As much as I like Leah, I'd be apt to pass on Leah and Rachel just because of the family connection of Jacob and his two wives (Rachel and Leah) and 12 sons (including Benjamin.)

I like Rachel best with Benjamin. Elise is second, it was tough to choose between the two! :) Leah is not my style.

What kind of girls names does your DH like?

All great! I like Leah followed by Rachel followed by Elise. Benjamin and Leah are both on my short list; Rachel is on my long list.

I read an article on how Sophia is a perfect sister name for Benjamin and the author decided not to use it for Benjamin's sister for that reason, because she saw the pairing everywhere. So I don't know if that means Sophie should make the list or not :)

I'd go with Rachel or Leah. :)

Dr. Kae is right on, though, about having both a Rachel and a Leah in a family!
