Just found out DC2 will be a boy smile sister is Isabella and surname is 3 syllables but 6 letters so not long.
I have lots of girls names but bit stuck on boys.
My list so far is :

Christian
Jude
Asher
Ethan
Isaac
Nathaniel (Nate)
Jacob
Elijah
Joseph

None really "jump" out at me - leaning towards Nathaniel but still not 100%. My girls list was full of Welsh names as I'm Welsh but I'm a bit lost! I'm looking for a "strong" name. Girls seem to be easier to name than boys! confused

Isabella is a classic, pan-European name.

The boys name that I think is most the same is Alexander

I like Christan and Nathaniel best from your list

Other possibles: William, Ferdinand, Benedict, Peter

Love Nathaniel and Jude. Agree Benedict would match well.

Bryn
Gethin
Dylan

Thanks - middle name will be Peter along with a yet unchosen African name (DH is African)
Nathaniel is the one I'm leaning to but I don't know if I "love" it yet lol.

Gabriel, Soloman and Micah were all on my long list which DH was a bit hmm at. Might have to work on him a bit more. I love Ezra but it's very popular here ATM. It does seem I'm drawn to biblical names lol

Well DH has had an about turn and now loves Gabriel. DD has been calling my bump Gabriel since yesterday and it's kind of stuck.. So for now I think (fingers crossed) we have a favourite. (Secretly smug as it was one of my top names) thanks all
