The rest are pretty much equal to me.

almostanotherday Wed 24-Apr-13 09:49:28

One of them is my DC name lol

KittenofDoom Wed 24-Apr-13 10:25:08

I like all of them, but can't put them in any kind of order without knowing the surname. Can you give some clues, eg no of syllables, starts with, rhymes with?

rundontwalk Wed 24-Apr-13 10:57:39

James Alexander definitely. Then Joseph, Robert, Stephen, Paul and lastly Dennis.

TenthMuse Wed 24-Apr-13 13:05:23

James Alexander definitely top. Then Robert, Joseph, Stephen, Paul (doesn't flow imo) and Dennis.

James paul is really lovely.

TheCatInTheHairnet Wed 24-Apr-13 13:10:56

I like the name, Dennis. The only Dennis I know is 30, very very cool and funny and his name really suits him.

TicketyToc Wed 24-Apr-13 14:10:59

James Alexander
James Paul
James Robert
James Joseph
James Dennis
James Stephen

fussychica Wed 24-Apr-13 16:54:17

Alexander by a mile, then Robert, Joseph, Stephen, Paul not Dennis.

picnicbasketcase Wed 24-Apr-13 16:55:04

Exactly as above ^

OrangeFootedScrubfowl Wed 24-Apr-13 17:33:59

I would want to avoid the nicknames JJ, JD, JR, ad JP.
So that leaves me with James Stephen and James Alexander. Because I've never heard of anyone known as JS or JA! Out of them, I think James Alexander flows more nicely.

James Alexander here too.

exoticfruits Wed 24-Apr-13 17:48:30

James Alexander
(but does it spell anything with surname?)

In order after that:
Robert, Stephen, Joseph, Paul but definitely not Dennis.

everlong Wed 24-Apr-13 18:01:43

James Alexander.

What about James Cameron?

justaweeone Wed 24-Apr-13 18:08:12

James Alexander

BusyBee86 Wed 24-Apr-13 19:31:11

We have a three syllable surname that begins with s!

exoticfruits Wed 24-Apr-13 19:32:32

James Alexander seems to be the favourite then-you don't generally get such agreement!

James Alexander

LynetteScavo Wed 24-Apr-13 20:28:33

James Joseph.

By far.

KittenofDoom Wed 24-Apr-13 20:52:39

With the vital surname information then smile

James Paul and James Robert have a clear lead for me.

James Dennis is ruled out because of the clashing S's

The others end up with rather too many sibilants, and James Alexander is also a bit of a mouthful with a 3 syllable surname.

notwellboy Thu 25-Apr-13 08:11:47

James Alexander is lovely

melodyme Sun 28-Apr-13 18:57:08

CPtart Sun 28-Apr-13 19:05:29

cheekbyjowl Sun 28-Apr-13 19:26:12
