Just discovered the twins we're expecting next year are both boys!

DH and I are stuck. He's vetoed Alexander and I'm vetoing William
(for Windsorish reasons!)

Already have a DS and DD. Naming prefs are for classic, formal names with plenty of decent nickname potential.

Want DCs to be able to adapt their name to suit rather than be defined by our tastes IYSWIM.

Edward and Samuel

I'm amazed at the number of people recommending William with Edward -Bill & Ted!!

Shame DH is not on board with Alexander.

I like Henry or Christopher or Nicholas from the suggestions here. Or Robert.

How about Alastair, Robin, Leonard, Peter, Benjamin?

I was going to suggest William.. What about Edward and Dominic?

Thomas my first thought too.

Wow! Went for a bath and returned to such riches! Thank you.

Two of the most popular suggestions are already taken by DH and DS1 so you're all definitely on the right lines - very impressive.

Nicholas and David are very close friends, although I like both names, and Christopher is my DBil!

Like Theodore (Theo, not Teddy, obv), Andrew, Frederick, Henry and Thomas (although the last two are a bit Rev Awdry with Edward).

Thank you all so much, great suggestions. Will run things by DH later as he's glued to evil Savile expose ATM.

Edward & Thomas - ted & tom
Edward & Stanley - ted & stan
