Taking this from thread started by Cate about naming the name in women.

But what's wrong with a man who is unsuccessful and a little meek?

Great idea wink

Flynn - love short, strong sounding names. Also agree with the poster who said Guy, although I'm not a fan of the name.

cool I have 2 boys. James seems popular as does his middle name Edward. I also have a Benjamin

None of those are vaguely similar to DS's name - strong and successful clearly wasn't on our initial criteria hmm

James or Thomas. Something that could be shortened and still sound good. Also something that you couldn't tell which era or class it came from.
