Need a boys name to go with Daniel and Nathan, I have Benjamin stuck in my head but DH has disallowed it due to many many pet dogs named Ben. Please help.

Some lovely names above.

Every family of little brothers must have a James IMO.

Jake/ Jacob

My initial thought was that it had to be benjamin, then I read your post. Tell your dh he is wrong about the dogs. smile. I do not know any dogs called ben (except the one in that dreadful 1970s film, for the love of Benji).

(for the record there are lots of dogs called Sam. )

A neighbour has a Daniel and Nathan she also has a Matthew and a James.

What about Lewis or Adam?

Luke or Samuel (Sam for short)

Christopher, Sam, Luke or Matthew I think.

I'm getting a semi-Biblical vibe to the names...

Both Daniel and Nathan are biblical names so you could just have a look through the Bible and see what boys names you like. In the future if you were to have a daughter you could do the same.

Speaking of biblical themes, I just love the name Noah, but it would mean you have 2 sons with N names and one without.
Would that matter?

I don't watch too much One Tree Hill or anything

I have a Daniel and a Matthew. Goes well, i think.

I would pick a non rhyming name, different initial but keep with the biblical theme


Joshua, Jonah, Jacob, Joseph, Asher, Micah, Malachi (mal-a-k-eye not mal-a-key), Isaac, Ezra, James and so on (just some of my favourites).

Mark, Marcus, David, Simon, Steven, Timothy, Peter

What about Brody that would go with your other names

colditz Fri 01-Feb-13 13:55:37

You simply must go for old testement type names.

colditz Fri 01-Feb-13 13:58:16

Brody is Irish for "ditch"
