Sorry I only like Reuben or Finley. My ds has James as middle name - he's Alexander James.

If I was having a boy it was going to be Elliot James (it's not).

I hope you don't mind me saying that I prefer your list to your husbands, Tobias is lovely.

My husband is not taking the whole naming thing seriously - sigh - hmm

I like Reuben, Tobias and Orion.

I wouldn't worry too much about 'matching' the middle name as it gets so rarely used. Spend more time finding a first name you both love!

He may give that impression, but he'll be quick to pounce on a name if he dislikes it. Got long to go?

Of the 3 you gave, I like Tobias or Toby best.

Why not kid him on you're considering Achilles or Troy?

Tobias James sounds best, and also like Toby.

It's so frustrating trying to have a serious conversation with dh about names! Ill suggest something like fern and he's like what about sha'nay'nay instead? Sigh..
Just you choose from your list, all lovely names x

Another one here who was considering Elliott James - in the end went with a different middle name (used a family name instead)

Has your OH considered Kermit? that was my OHs contribution!

Also Keiran
Getting away from the "an" theme...David

Thank you for the names everyone - Finlay is certainly my favourite, we'll have to see who the stork brings smile
