John is very nice, an underused classic. Due a revival I think!

John is lovely. As is Ted. But not Will (will is a verb imo and too close to Willy). How about Quinn or Paul?

I'm with you on Ted blue, or Bill? Jonathan is nice, but I think John is a little boring.

Ralph (Melina suggested it, but even when pronounced Rafe it is traditionally spelt Ralph) is lovely too.
Mark
Matthias
Timothy/ Tim
Benjamin/ Ben

John is fine

I dont think there is a problem with Will as a name my Grandad was known by this name and it never got added to or changed to Willy.

Also went to College with a Will and a Pip and they were both very nice looking boys who didnt get the mick taken out of them for their names. And yes Pip was his full name

Max, Ed, Toby, Will, Hugh, Ben,

Nothing wrong with John!
