I'm not sure if you have heard of the website www.nymbler.com, but you put in names you like and it comes up with suggestions. Some of the names you like lead it to suggest:

Martin
Oliver
Leo
Larry
Noah
Jack
Curtis
James
Benjamin
Ross
Henry
Maurice
Quentin
Crispin
Dexter
Barnaby
Benjamin
Graham
Myles
Gerard

You can add names to a shortlist and play around with the suggestions, it might be worth a look.

Thanks, that's lots of food for thought. Definitely liking Edward as Ted, Sebastian, Henry, Oscar is on the right lines too but we have one in close family already.
Thanks

Dc2 was, in my head, another girl. She has turned out to be twin boys. We have NO boys names, didn't manage to agree on one when dd was born (thank goodness she was a girl!). I could name twin girls 50 times over (whether dh would agree or not is another matter!). But what would the boys equivalent of these sort of girls names be? (I mean similar in "feel" rather than the direct girl/boy swap eg claudia->claud)
