Albert James - love it!

You can't have a Barnaby with a brother called Teddy!! Barnaby Bear ...?

I don't like Albert but love both Elliot and Callum

Elliot James
Callum Albert

Elliot is gorgeous. To me it just conjures up a very sweet little boy. Who is very polite and well mannered. The only thing I don't like is that the NNs El, Ellie are far too effeminate
. Callum is awful.
Barnaby, although cute when he's a baby. That won't be the case, when. He's 15/and getting called Barney. Children can be very cruel. So on that basis. I'd have say Albert James.
Would you not consider James as a first name

Elliott James would be my choice.

I'm not too keen on any of your names but Albert James is best in my opinion and I like nn Albie. I don't like Barnaby at all, it sounds quite silly IMO.

Albert and James are my favourite on your list. I quite like Callum but am less keen on Elliott and Barnaby. James seems to be used as a middle name often so a different choice would be more unusual.

Barnaby James

Or Elliott

I really dislike Albert

Barnaby and Elliott are lovely.

I don't like Albie/Albert very much at all, sorry.

Not keen on any of them tbh but prefer Albert - nn Bert

Like Barnaby, like James. Don't like Albert, prefer Bertram if you want the Bert bit or Alex, Alexander or Alastair if you like the Al bit.

Don't like Elliott, do like Callum. Like Callum James or even better James Callum.

Also like Caleb if you like the Cal bit.

Prefer Elliott and Callum to Albert. Agree with a PP that a Teddy and a Barnaby is one bear too many!

Elliot and Barnaby are great and think they both go well with Edward.

Don't like Albert (Albie, Bert) much, sorry.

Gummibaers Wed 13-Apr-16 21:51:20

I also think that Albert and Edward are quite similar in sound and too matchy for brothers.

Love Barnaby - either of those middle names go well with it.

Who is Barnaby Bear? confused

I really dislike Albert (and Bert/ie and Albie) so it would have to be Barnaby James! Which is good as I think both names are lovely.

BendydickCuminsnatch Fri 15-Apr-16 19:48:49

Oh yes sorry Elliott wins overall for me!

I love Albert and Elliot. I'm having a boy and still trying to think of a name. I love Albert though.
