OK - so they are the names for DS1 and DS2. So what do I do about DS3 (sue August)?

OH has always liked Gabriel, but it doesn't pass the 'supermarket' test for me.

Not sure which direction to take!

Lovely names!

To go with them, how about: Marcus, Edward, James, Benedict, Ellias, Theodore, Gideon, Jeremy, Oscar?

As your boys have names which are Biblical and ancient Greek, how about:

Biblical:
Barnabas
Daniel
Isaac
Jared
Benjamin
Jeremiah
Jedediah (I met a little boy called this - Jed was a cool nn)
Thaddeus
Jude
Zachary
Jonathan

Greek:
Sebastian
Theo
Theodore
Philip
Christopher
Christian
Gregory

or if you want a matching 3-syllable name apart from several above:
:
Dominic
Gabriel
Anthony

Good luck choosing!

Thanks! There are a couple you've listed like Dominic and James which I have really been thinking about.

You're right about biblical/biblical times names. I think I should go down that route...

Solomon...? I really like this but nn would be too close to DS's. Would be great with your boys though I think!

Watching with interest, we have a Xander and have DC2 on the way. I know my girl choices but am completely stuck on a boy's name. Liking Zachary alot though.

How about Clappy?

Does Gabe pass the supermarket test? if so, try that out on dh. Gabriel on his birth certificate, Gabe for everyday. I like Greenwing's list.

Jude, Jonah, Jeronimo?
