We have a Hugh (Hughie) and an Alfred (Fred) what would you think DC3 would be (if a boy).

We like:

Henry (but two H's??)
Maxim (as in De Winter)

I like but DH might need a push...

Edward (Woody not Ed because of Fred but that might be odd and rude nickname etc)
Thedore (Theo)
Barnaby
Sebastian

George, Charlie, Arthur, James are all out for one reason or another.

As a F1 obsessive I vote for Sebastian! I love it!

From the options you've listed, I like Theo or Sebastian.

You seem to like traditional but uncommon names. How about
William (Billy or Liam)
Jonathan
Albert (Bertie)
Nicholas
Alexander
Thomas

I think 2 H's is fine and I love the name Maxim, wish I could use it but unfortunately can't.

Theo/Theodore and Sebastian also good and on my list too.

Given the choice of these I would have Maxim definately because there are not many around. Theo is a really good all rounder though and good for an adult as well as a child smile

William lovely, but won't work with the surname. Albert is a good friend's baby's name and I think too close to Alfred. I like Alexander too, but we know two. Jonathan - not keen. Nicholas the same. Thomas is nice but not sure works with the other two boys?

Love Henry but sure a friend will pip me to the post on that one. Maxim is growing on me. Tried Theo on DH last time and he just was not quite there. He thinks Sebastian is too posh/trendy for us.

I like Henry, Edward, Theo and Sebastian.

How about Peter, Felix, Jasper, Miles, Jacob, Aidan, Nathaniel, Oliver, Tristan, Jonah, Leopold, Aaron, Elias, Edwin, Gabriel, Lawrence?

I have a friend with a barnaby and bt first was a Bit taken aback by the name although I know instantly it was fab with her other children's names. But its one of those names I now Love. Think sometimes it takes a while for people to get used to the less often used names. we have a Hugo and there were a few puzzled faces to start with although it was only a few and mostly gets a fab response. I'm to trying to think of another boys name I love as much as Hugo
