That's it really. Sasha's full name would be Alexander.

I also like Wlliam but DH won't consider it!

Reuben is so common now I know at least 10

Daniel. Not Sasha!! That is a terrible name!!

Perfectly good name. Not many young ones around now. Works well for all ages. Dan and Danny both great nicknames.

Reuben means ''behold...a son!'' would use it for that reason alone smile

Sacha no matter what it's a diminutive of is too feminine sounding imo.

Ethen/Ethan - Bit 90's to my ears (sorry not meaning to offend anyone just my opinion)

Max - cute. I like.

Daniel - timeless classic, but doesnt have the ''sparkle'' of Reuben or Max to me.

Enjoy your bundle of joy smile

Sasha, but why not just give him that name, rather than something completely different?

Reuben, if DC 3 if he comes along that's what I would like to call him. Max is cool too, Maximilian though, not just Max.

Max! I love it.

I have a Max William - so that would be my vote! smile

Thanks. Reuben seems to lead followed by Sasha then Daniel.

Sasha is my fave but DH loves Reuben, the others are our compromises but we may well resort to a compromise. I will think more about Reuben though.

. I note comments about Sasha being feminine but I'm not too worried about that, in most of the world it's the diminutive for Alexander and used by males.

I like Alexander best. But not keen on Sasha. I thought it was a girls name.

Sasha. Lovely.
