I agree with Samuel, William, Edward, Benjamin, Stephen, Thomas , Peter, or James basically it has to be traditional .

Like wise his sister would be Elizabeth, Alice, Charlotte (only problem is this becomes Charlie and then they sound like brothers), Sophie, Katherine, Anna (dull), Rebecca, Laura, Emily, Emma, Rachel.

Simple and old fashioned

I don't think you can do Henry and Hermione.

You cannot have Henry and Hermione imo!! I'd also avoid another -ie ending name (e.g. Rory, Charlie etc)

How about

Henry & Finnian
Henry & Quentin
Henry & Jacob

Henry & Louisa
Henry & Isabella
Henry & Helena

Too much like Harry and Hermione?

Yes, Henry and Harry are the same name.

I love Rory and Jemima.

Henry and George must be the most overused male sibling pair this century!

We have similar taste - I have a Henry and love your choices, especially Hermione. Names on my girls list (not including my daughter for fear of outing myself!) -


And boys we only had two others we liked

I steered away from names beginning with H for that reason

James Alexander John Surname

Ideas so far:

Wilfred (wilfy?)

Hermione (too cutesy with Henry? Too much like Harry and Hermione?)

What do you think of list?

For middle names, need John in there somewhere, but sounds quite dull with monosyllabic surname, so maybe Alexander too?

And mn for girl - Katherine.
