Just found out we are expecting DC3!
Dont know the sex, but assuming boy as there are no girls in the family!

With DS2 there was only one name we both liked, I think we will really struggle this time to find another one.
Names I like....
Nathaniel
Jesse
Dexter
Rory
Reuben

I don't think DH will like any of them!

Any other suggestions?
Thanks

probably help to know the names of the two you already have.

If you have Christopher and Simon, then Mathew might work

If you have Orlando and Phoenix, then clearly it wouldn't.

If there are no girls in the family, how do all the boys get born??

I think Nathaniel is rather nice, but it depends on your other sons' names.

No girl children!
We have a Max and Xander (Alexander)

LadyAntonella Mon 25-Apr-16 13:04:44

I think Reuben and Dexter go best with Max and Xander.

How about:

Felix
Rex
Isaac
Zachary

Zeke
Rowen
Ivan
Evan
Theo

I like Felix and Rowen/Rowan.

Does Dexter sound too much like Xander?

LadyAntonella Mon 25-Apr-16 13:52:37

Dexter and Xander might sound quite similar in some accents and if you're calling them from upstairs or something...

Xaaaaander
Deeeeeexter

Maybe a bit alike... But they're quite different names so if Dexter is a favourite I wouldn't let that stop you using it.

You have fairly similar taste to me OP so here is my carefully curated boys list. I've been keeping it since we had DS (5 years) because choosing his name was a bloody balk ache hard stare at DH

Lawrence - Laurie
Mawgan
Dominick
Rowan
Rufus
Jasper
Ivo
Ethan
Jessy
Arlo
Levi
Ruen
Felix
Leo
Noah
Finn
Miles
Aleric

I like all your options except Jesse. Only because I think it's too feminine.
Dexter goes well with the others and continues the X theme. He will probably get called Dex which is very close to Max.
My favourites are Rory and Reuben personally but all these names are perfectly fine.

Rex (stick with the X theme)
Oscar
Lucien

I like Nathaniel and Reuben.

Jesse would go nicely with your other 2 names, it's a pretty cool too

woopywoo Mon 25-Apr-16 18:46:32

I have a Dexter Miles.Carry on with the X theme!

manicinsomniac Mon 25-Apr-16 19:15:06

I love Nathaniel and Jesse. Also Felix and Rowan from other suggestions.

Or, how about Max, Xander and:
Aidan, Aaron, Brody, Callum, Dylan, Elliot, Ellis, Emerson, Finn, Harley, Isaac, Joel, Jared, Jasper, Luca, Logan, Nico, Nicholas, Oscar, Owen, Patrick, Quinn, Roman, Rafi, Solly, Theo, Vincent, Zachary

noitsachicken Mon 25-Apr-16 19:36:36

I think Jesse is cool, can't imagine either set of gparents liking it much though!
I do like an X name, but not sure I want a theme.

Thanks for ideas.

Is Finn quite popular now? DS1 is 17 and called Finn. Literally no one else I knew had a boy named Finn.

I think Logan would go with the other 2 names.

Go for another X name and they can be the X MEN.

I like Dexter and Rory from your list and Felix and Nicholas(Nicky/Nico) from the suggestions.

Do you have a girls name just in case? Only my family had a shock when I came along as the last girl had been my great, great grandmother who was 94 when I was born.......and there had been a lot of baby boys born between us. My parents hadn't even thought of a girls name, which is funny as I was eventually given 3!

Xavier?

Or as you almost have an emporer/leader theme, Octavian, Alban, Cornelius, Horatio?
