Help! I prefer much more traditional names, dh not English and wants less "stuffy" names (though these are generally ones I love). I particularly like more unusual names (ie uncommon but not bizarre: still traditional). Regal or Rugby playing names are good. I had a list (see below) I love lots of them on the list - dh has vetoed 90% of them... sad

(in no particular order)
Rupert
Harry
Benjamin
Benedict
Oscar
Edmund
Oliver
Caspar
Caspian
Nicholas
Alexander
Edward
Spencer

Be very grateful for suggestions!!!
