Need a boys name to go with Daniel and Nathan, I have Benjamin stuck in my head but DH has disallowed it due to many many pet dogs named Ben. Please help.

Nathaniel is all my ever so inventive DH can come up with and he thinks he is hillarious smile Sam might be a contender though I will have to check it passes the 'dog test' Thanks for the ideas

First name that came to mind was Thomas.
Dan, Nate and Tom.
Or samuel or Alexander
Dan, Nate and Sam
Dan, Nate and Alex.
Pretty much what others have said.

NineTen Sun 27-Jan-13 18:21:49

I grew up with neighbours called Nathan and Jamie and I always thought they were lovely boys names and went well together. smile

Daniel, Nathan and Oliver sounds lovely smile

lottiegarbanzo Thu 31-Jan-13 04:44:02

Matthew of course. That's the name that came straight to mind as the answer to your question. Joshua fits too.

lottiegarbanzo Thu 31-Jan-13 04:45:38

Adam or Dominic would also be nice.

nagynolonger Thu 31-Jan-13 05:21:36

Some lovely names above.

Every family of little brothers must have a James IMO.

Bearandcub Thu 31-Jan-13 06:15:53

Benedict

legalalien Thu 31-Jan-13 06:26:07

My initial thought was that it had to be benjamin, then I read your post. Tell your dh he is wrong about the dogs. smile. I do not know any dogs called ben (except the one in that dreadful 1970s film, for the love of Benji).

(for the record there are lots of dogs called Sam. )

SissySpacekAteMyHamster Thu 31-Jan-13 06:33:34

Adrian ... don't know why, but it goes in my head

insanityscratching Thu 31-Jan-13 06:35:00

A neighbour has a Daniel and Nathan she also has a Matthew and a James.

What about Lewis or Adam?

MusicalEndorphins Thu 31-Jan-13 06:46:27

Luke or Samuel (Sam for short)

MrsMaryCooper Thu 31-Jan-13 06:56:15

Isaac

ScaredySquirrel Thu 31-Jan-13 06:56:27

Christopher, Sam, Luke or Matthew I think.

gazzalw Thu 31-Jan-13 07:56:28

I'm getting a semi-Biblical vibe to the names...

hippy1952 Thu 31-Jan-13 09:23:14

Both Daniel and Nathan are biblical names so you could just have a look through the Bible and see what boys names you like. In the future if you were to have a daughter you could do the same.

Ra88 Thu 31-Jan-13 09:42:07

James

MusicalEndorphins Fri 01-Feb-13 04:10:10

Speaking of biblical themes, I just love the name Noah, but it would mean you have 2 sons with N names and one without.
Would that matter?

CheerfulYank Fri 01-Feb-13 04:51:54

Lucas.

I don't watch too much One Tree Hill or anything

amazingmumof6 Fri 01-Feb-13 09:26:15

happyjustobeme Fri 01-Feb-13 12:49:25

I have a Daniel and a Matthew. Goes well, i think.

I would pick a non rhyming name, different initial but keep with the biblical theme

So

Joshua, Jonah, Jacob, Joseph, Asher, Micah, Malachi (mal-a-k-eye not mal-a-key), Isaac, Ezra, James and so on (just some of my favourites).

Mark, Marcus, David, Simon, Steven, Timothy, Peter

rainbow2000 Fri 01-Feb-13 13:54:25

What about Brody that would go with your other names

colditz Fri 01-Feb-13 13:55:37

You simply must go for old testement type names.

colditz Fri 01-Feb-13 13:58:16

Brody is Irish for "ditch"

If you like Ben but aren't allowed Benjamin, then how about Benedict?

Also like Matthew, James, Peter, Thomas and Samuel.

Back2Two Sat 02-Feb-13 20:00:12

Raphael just popped in my mind when I read the other two names.
