For a boy? Or similar alternatives?

Bram
Emmett
might be alternatives. Benedict is a viable alternative too imo.

I can't choose between Beckett and Bennett - they seem a bit random as names unless there is a family connection.

Neither, sorry. I like Benedict though.

I actually really like Beckett, makes me think of Carson Beckett off Stargate grin I don't think there's too much wrong with a surname as a first name if it's what you like!

Not keen on either I'm afraid. Though if I recall correctly Stella McCartney has a Beckett. I think it's marginally better than Bennett, which I think will sound awful in a lot of accents - sort of Ben-it.

What do you think is similar? Are you after a B sound, or a surname name for example?

I love Bram as suggested above, such a cool name.

Beckett out of the two, Beck is quite cool!

Also like Benedict and Bram which have been mentioned.

If you like surnamey names how about:
Grayson
Jackson
Branson
Wilson
Jameson
Carter
Parker
Cooper
Taylor
Smith
Brock

I'm not keen on either. Sorry.
Surnamey boys names I do like (and know)
Charlton
Ridley
Fenwick
Emerson
