Boys name shortlist

So ds2 is due next week and we have a shortlist but we're still open to suggestions. Our surname is one syllable so would prefer a long first name that can be shortened - ds1 is Zachariah (Zach) and we probably call him both equally so would want something that we like both the long and short version of. Middle name will be Philip.

So from the following, which do you prefer:
Joshua Philip
Reuben Philip
Sebastian Philip

All lovely, I can hardly pick a favourite.
Zach and josh sound nice if you intend to shorten Joshua

Otherwise Zach and Reuben

Love Reuben but DH says is too Jewish. WTF!! I do love it though.

What about Maximilian?

Dominic, Benedict, Nathaniel and William were all on the long list - you have great taste littlecherublegs smile And tbh, we both still like them all.

I like Max, but I'm not sure about Maximilian.

Sebastian Philip is lovely but I don't like Seb.
