we are really struggling to pick a name for DS2 we like traditional names. they seem have a royal theme

we already have George.

I like so far;
William
Henry

Dp likes Harry which I dont mind.

I dont like the fact that they are getting really popular I dont want anything too old fashiined but I can imagine lots of children at school with the same name

I would really like him to have a name before hes born im 34 weeks.
im also think of Arlo as his middle name

I prefer Henry to Harry but if you're going down that route, I would just put Henry on the bc and DH can call him Harry as his nn...I actually prefer William though.

I like your name choices and others I like are as follows - tbh most of these names, although popular (maybe not Dominic) are classics so won't date. My kids have popular names and, although you hear of others when out and about and there are others at their school, they've never has another in their baby classes/school classes. I find the "of the moment" names blend into one particularly the girls names (see Lily, Millie, Tilly, Holly, Molly, Polly, Kitty, Poppy etc...)

Oliver
Frederick nn. Freddie
Benjamin
Edward nn. Teddy
Sebastian
Samuel
Alexander
Dominic

What about Albert nn. Bertie?

I like your style! I like William most, followed by George. How about:

Laurence
Benedict
Gabriel

?
