I like James, Harry and Luke.
I think it would be extremely confusing to call your ds Byron if your dh's name is Brian.

James..ok but a bit over used
Harry...ok but over used it

Thank you all for the feedback, its been really helpful. I am Irish which is why I probably automatically spell Myles as I do. We shall be living in the UK long term, so I am not keen on Irish names. My husband has a very unusual, uncommon Irish surname which always has to be repeated and spelt, so hence I wanted a straightforward name.

James is my favorite, but not DHs. it doesn't help that he keeps reminding me that his very elderly mother (who I love dearly) doesn't like it. The only reason for Byron, is my husband name is Brian and his dads name too, and we thought it may be a compromise as I am not keen on the name Brian smile. The only person I know called Myles, changed his name to Dave!!

James is an excellent name (and is DS2's name) - classic and actually not that many baby Jameses around.

Harry is lovely and on my list if we have a DS3.

Myles is the Irish spelling
Miles English.

Myles is definitely the best of the lot, especially because no one on the thread likes it, there won't be thousands at school. I knew an Irishman called Myles and he was a very strong leader and charismatic.

Great choices - lots were on my shortlist too smile
James ~ loves (but a long-time ex was called that, so DH vetoed it grin)
Myles ~ don't like the y spelling. DH also vetoed it but for no decent reason.
Louis ~ meh.
Byron ~ love. Also on shortlist but DH wasn't having any of it.
Harry ~ meh
Luke - boring

James is a classic. Prefer Miles & Louie as spellings.

Myles/strong dislike
Harry/ nice but know so many
Luke/ like a lot

I dont like Byron either (sorry), and Miles with an i is better. Fav name on the list Louis.

MadameCastafiore Sun 27-Jan-13 20:03:59

All a bit unoriginal to me am afraid.

Louis is my favourite of those! I do quite like Miles, but would spell it with an i myself. James, Luke and Harry are all nice names. Byron is dreadful (sorry).

DessieLou Sun 27-Jan-13 19:34:35

Byron is not good, I'm afraid! James is nice, as is Luke. Miles is ok (with that spelling) but I'm put off as I know one that is a moron. smile

Luke is my favourite, followed by James.

Hate Byron, sorry.

TheWave Sun 27-Jan-13 13:41:26

Harry and James bit boring sorry. Like Luke but quite popular. Byron I think is possible, could get used to. Others ok.

Viviennemary Sun 27-Jan-13 13:09:18

I'm not so keen on Byron and Miles but the others are fine.

amck5700 Sun 27-Jan-13 12:40:09

I'd spell Myles, Miles, not keen on Byron - too much of the mispelled Brian about it for me.

Otherwise, nice list.

Chottie Sun 27-Jan-13 12:38:11

I'm not so keen on Bryon and Myles, but I like the other names. Are you going to have a middle name?
