Brother for Oliver?

DH and I are completely stumped and can't agree on anything!

I like James, George and Max.

He likes Jacob (but I'm not keen on Jake, which it would inevitably be shortened to as it was my childhood dog's name) Ethan and Joseph.

We both quite like Lucas and Charlie but neither are "the one"!

Anyone have any ideas on middle ground? As you can see, we're not terribly adventurous so far although I did briefly flirt with Rafferty only to be laughed out of the house!

Straight away I thought of William - lovely. James and George gorgeous too. Is Oliver old enough to have a say?

Sorry, but James? Jamie and Oliver? 'Tis too much like Jack and Daniel.

Oliver and Thomas

Haha never thought of Jamie and Oliver! P'raps not! Really like some of these though, thanks everyone!

Charlie is lovely and DH is "Ben" but he's keen on Thomas and Jack from these suggestions, both of which I quite like too. I smell a not-too-distant result!

Oliver not old enough to really understand yet but I'm considering Richard as a middle name after my brother.

verybadhairdoo Fri 27-May-11 22:21:20

I know an Oliver. His brother's name is Aidan
