Dexter
Maxwell
Teddy
Finley
We have whittled our very long list down to the above and think we agree on a favourite, however was wondering what other people thoughts are?
We are looking for a name that can be shortened into another real name that goes with William (Will) and Joshua (Josh).
Middle names are chosen in memory of our Grandads and will ne Frederick John.
Thanks in advance.

Maxwell. Maxwell Frederick John sounds good imo.

Will, Josh and Max.
Three boys!! Congratulations

Loving Dexter and Teddy. Would possible put Theodore on BC for Teddy though.

LauraChant Tue 24-Sep-13 20:45:59

They are all lovely. I wanted Teddy for DS1 but I would have gone for Edward as the birth certificate name.

Sirzy Tue 24-Sep-13 20:47:03

I like Teddy but only as a nickname for Edward.

I love dexter!

NooMyx Tue 24-Sep-13 20:48:40

I'll vote for Maxwell.

I love Dexter & Finley

Not really keen on Finley Frederick, too many ffs lol. Other are lovely and work quite well with your other boys' names. Think Maxwell would be my favourite though.

I like Maxwell best, it goes best with the middle names too.

LeMousquetaireAnonyme Tue 24-Sep-13 21:17:37

Dexter is the only one which goes with the middle names, IMO.

Hassled Tue 24-Sep-13 21:19:43

Teddy or Dexter.

Not keen on Maxwell, and while Finley/Finlay is nice enough, there are an awful lot of them around.

Bowlersarm Tue 24-Sep-13 21:21:04

Teddy.

Perfect.

OutragedFromLeeds Tue 24-Sep-13 21:45:10

I like Finley best, but I'd turn the middle names round to make it Finley John Frederick.

I like Teddy as a nickname, but it really needs a proper name imo. I'd go for Edward.

I like Max, but not Maxwell.

Don't like Dexter and don't think Dex is a proper name like Will or Josh.

pygmy Tue 24-Sep-13 22:04:35

I like Finlay (not Finley) and Edward with the nn Teddy. Max is nice as a nn for Maximilian. Not keen on Dexter.

BlueShirtBlueTie Tue 24-Sep-13 22:06:48

Out of those I like Finley and Maxwell.

Finley does seem to be very popular at the moment though, so based on that I would have to say Maxwell.

Tattiesthroughthebree Tue 24-Sep-13 22:45:37

Maxwell.
William, Joshua and Maxwell.
Will, Josh and Max.

Sounds great.

LazyMonkeyButler Tue 24-Sep-13 22:53:04

This is odd, but my mind will only let me say Will, Josh, Ben grin.

Of your choices probably Max(well).

Teddy is bloody lovely!

Playboxpony Wed 25-Sep-13 08:58:05

Like all of them except Dexter (sorry!). If you forced me to choose one, based on your other boys' names, I think I would probably also say Max. Yep, Will, Max and Josh are lovely seperately and go really well together,

Shnickshnack Wed 25-Sep-13 09:26:34

Teddy? Really? I don't get it.
Maximilian rather than maxwell.

CPtart Wed 25-Sep-13 09:32:38

Edward on birth cert, then Teddy if you prefer.

None of the others.

googietheegg Wed 25-Sep-13 10:25:04

The only one as classy as your other names is Edward, nn Teddy.

Writerwannabe83 Wed 25-Sep-13 12:24:57

I like Finley and Maxwell.

Teddy is nice but only as a nickname as other people have said. Everyone relates Teddy to a Teddy Bear and what pre-pubescent boy, teenager or adult male wants to be associated with a Teddy Bear?
