Max's little brother could be called.....

We really struggled naming our first DS but agreed on Max (full name Maxwell) and love it. Now we're thinking about his baby brothers name. What suggestions do you have?

We're not keen on another short name, we can't have one ending in y/ie due to our surname, we don't want a name that's cutsie, though it could have a cute nickname, and nothing too posh (according to DH, though being antipodean I don't get what's too posh over here!).

Ideas please....

The Max I know has a younger brother called Oscar, if that helps, which it probably doesn't.

To start with, I missed 'brother' when I read your title, and thought "not Ruby". But if he's not having a sister, you're safe grin

Oh, and they are teenagers now, so Oscar was named way before the current explosion. He has always been known as Ozzie. Which may not go with your surname.

<unhelpful, sorry>

I can't think of many names that would NOT go with Max. How about these for longer names:

Max & Fabian
Max & Nathan
Max & Quentin
Max & Sebastian
Max & Hugo
Max & Ronan

Oh great suggestions. I love Oscar, Sebastian, Hugo, Theo, Rafferty, Xander.... Suspect that some will be too posh for DH though!

My vote goes to Lucas.
