Am expecting DS2 in a few months and looking for opinions/ideas for names as it seems the only name DH and I both really love was used on DS1! We're quite traditional so not really bothered about having anything "out there" or unique. We've already got a Daniel Arthur and this one's middle name is probably either going to be James (if not the first name) or Paul. The names we both like so far are

Benjamin (would likely be called Ben by everyone)
Alexander (ditto, would be Alex)

We both quite like all of them but none are leaping out at either of us, so if anyone has any other suggestions along a similar vein they'd be much appreciated!

(although your ideas are lovely solid names, no worrying about being teased there).

They are all nice. I like Alexander James. How about Oliver or Henry?

James is a fabulous name - can go wrong with it IMO. Also like Ben. What about Henry?

No to George- too new prince.
