DS is Benjamin and now DC2 is on his/her way. We are pretty much settled on a girls name but boys are proving a struggle.

We tend to be quite traditional in our tastes and we have to confess to slight middle class tendencies. DH is keen on another long name which can be shortened. His favourite is Sebastian, mine is Harry. We are struggling to agree so we're after some inspiration. Anyone?

Sebastian is a beautiful name. We have a long surname & had a rule that DCs first names must be 7 letters or less & so Sebastian was vetoed.

What about William, (Wills, Billy etc) Oliver, (Oli) Dominic, (Dom, Nico), Christopher (love Kit as a nn), Alexander (Alex, Xander, Sasha) Theodore (Ted, Teddy or Theo), Tristan (Doesn't need a nn), Thomas (Tom, Tommy). All these names sound good with Benjamin.

Joseph (Joe)
Jacob (Jake)
Theodore (Theo)
Albert (Albie / Bertie)
Christopher (Chris / Kit)
Timothy (Tim)
Nathaniel (Nathan / Nate / Nat)
Alexander (Alex)
Patrick (Pat)
Jeremy (Jem)
Charles (Charlie)
Frederick (Fred / Freddie)
Montgomery (Monty)
Philip (Pip)
Robert (Robbie / Rob / Bobby)

Like Sebastian and love Dominic which has already been mentioned.

I think Daniel or Tobias would go together great. Ben & Toby are lovely nicknames too imo.
