In order of preference...

Henry - very nice, classic
George - like, classic
Milo - like
Zachary - quite like
Seth - like, nice classic Biblical name
Max - OK as nickname, but woudn't use as full name
Sebastian - quite nice
Stanley - too self-consciously "old man"

How about Theo, Samuel, Isaac, Jerome, Miles, Elliot?

Henry
Max
George

Couldnt decide between those three. I like the rest but prefer these three.

Henry was our first joint fave but sometimes i wonder if it's a bit meh. Still a top runner though i think.

YouMay i like your suggestions particularly Theo but too similar sounding to to DS i think (felix) also Isaac which was on my list but DH not keen. Sam also out as friend has one!

Sorry, this probably doesn't help you choosing between yours and your DHs favourites! Between those two, Seth is my fave smile

Thank you all! Altough am not sure you have helped with all the differant preferences lol ;)

Henry is probably coming out on top so far but i'm just not sure it excites me that much hmm.

Sebastian

TheWave Fri 05-Oct-12 14:13:23

George, Henry, yawn.

Stanley a bit too much in the current old man trent for me.

Seth a bit of a "lisp" like name if that makthes sense?

Prefer any of the others.

TheWave Fri 05-Oct-12 14:13:42

Not trent, trend, sorry

MoonHare Fri 05-Oct-12 14:24:26

Love Seth, that's the one I would go for.

George and Henry are soooo common and dare I say a little dull.

Sebastian is quite nice but I dislike Seb and Sebby.

Max is OK.

Don't like Stanley, as others have said too self-consciously 'old man' trend. Don't like Zachary either, Zak/Zack/Zach is also such a commonly heard name these days.

Milo I'm not sure about, I wouldn't use it but I think I prefer it to George, Henry, Stanley and Zachary.

Good luck with your decision.

Henry (am biased). Still waters run deep is all I can say!
George
Max
Milo
Stanley
Sebastian

Seth - sorry but always reminds me of slithering snakes/star wars
Zachary - too biblical

MrClaypole Fri 05-Oct-12 14:27:44

Like Henry, Seth, George in that order.

Really really dislike the name Stanley, sorry!

Allalonenow Fri 05-Oct-12 14:28:12

I really like Sebastian a lot, but not too keen on any of the others.

newyearsday Fri 05-Oct-12 21:44:19

I have a Seth, really love it, but occasionally people think I'm saying "Seff" (I don't have a lisp!), I have to say "no, Seth with a tee-haich".

My fave name whilst pg was Monty but it didn't suit him.

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Fri 05-Oct-12 21:45:24

Sebastian

Bumpstart Fri 05-Oct-12 21:45:33

I like sebastian and Stanley

tanfastic Fri 05-Oct-12 21:45:50

Stanley and Seth smile

PickledFanjoCat Fri 05-Oct-12 21:46:12

Henry is the best name like, ever !

Anonymumous Fri 05-Oct-12 22:32:00

Ugh, I hate Milo. It's one of those names I just don't 'get'. It makes me think of a fat Tweenie or a silo. Seth is much nicer. And I love Stanley - I would have used it myself except I don't find the meaning very inspiring. Actually I like pretty much all of your names except Milo.

(P.S. DS1 has FOUR Georges in his class at school, which would put me off that name somewhat!)

katiecubs Fri 05-Oct-12 23:00:58

Thank you everyone!

I'm not sure I get Milo either it doesn't feel right nag fir me George is too popular (wanted to stay away from top 10's and I think George is around that mark).

So far I think it's between Seth and Henry but may go back to the drawing board to see if there are any more that jump out!
