Hi. Have posted a few times recently looking mainly for ideas and opinions on names in like nut not sure of. I had mainly been thinking of girls names because this is DS2 and we had 2 possible names for DS 1 so we assumed we would use the other for DS2.

We've now found out it's a boy grin and we've decided were not as keen on the other name so I turn again to you lovely lot for inspiration!

DS1 is William and gets Will. I think I would like another longer name which can be shortened. Doesn't have to be as traditional as William but not too unusual either.

Names we can't use for various reasons:
Edward
George
Frederick
Joseph
Samuel

The "other name" was Max.
