My favourite by miles out of those is Thomas James, followed by Henry. Not keen on Hugo and I know too many babies called Max and Oliver alteady, both seem to be really popular at the moment.

DrMcDreamysWife Mon 15-Apr-13 16:23:59

I like all of them!! They have a nice ring and are all strong boys names

My favourite is Hugo James, my least favourite Max James. But I also love Henry James. Henry was on my list but our surname starts with an H so would have been silly!!

Hope your bubba comes soon so you get newborn snuggles near your birthday!!

Don't like Henry James for obvious reasons. Oliver James is my favourite, followed by Max.

Love them all - but not Hugo, sorry.

They all sound great with James, my favourite of all of these today is Oliver.

Have you practised shortened or diminutive versions? I actually prefer Tom or Tommy to Ollie. Hmm, tricky!

Hope you're having a happy birthday!

I have a Henry James smile

Love Hugo but it doesn't go with our surname.

Good luck for nex few days!

Henry James
Hugo James - my personal favourite.
Thomas James.

Max James: just feels 'unfinished to me' I prefer a longer version of Max followed by James.

Oliver James: just too popular for me, but a good, solid name.

Good Luck, DD2 was born on April 6th smile

Nice selection - Oliver James my personal favourite. Whichever goes best with your surname. Good luck and let us know.

Still18atheart Mon 15-Apr-13 19:30:31

Like them all. Especially Hugo and Oliver

Astley Mon 15-Apr-13 20:27:10

Max or Hugo for me. Henry is super popular everywhere now so I wouldn't have that. Also Henry James would be a no no for me.

CheerfulYank Mon 15-Apr-13 20:32:39

Hugo! I love it.

williaminajetfighter Mon 15-Apr-13 20:39:16

Oliver James is the name of an estate agent in Oxford. Go for Hugo... The most unique of the bunch.

CurryChip Mon 15-Apr-13 20:45:03

Love love love Henry James

Dadmaq Mon 15-Apr-13 22:34:23

What are the "obvious reasons" for not liking Henry James? Have I missed an obvious blooper? Is he a mass murderer or something?

Exhaustipated Mon 15-Apr-13 22:44:41

Henry James - novelist.

I like Hugo James best

KittenOfDoom Mon 15-Apr-13 23:08:12

Haven't we had this before?

My favourite is still Hugo James, easily.

MummyBurrows Mon 15-Apr-13 23:10:21

I like Henry James smile xx

Dadmaq Tue 16-Apr-13 17:55:50

I'm swaying heavily to Henry.

Although it can't really be shortened (unless he has the same name as a farmyard animal) I like it.

Is Henzy a good nn? Can imagine his mates calling him henz.
Or am I being daft?

Astley Tue 16-Apr-13 18:51:47

Haha not when he's over 2 I don't imagine!

williaminajetfighter Tue 16-Apr-13 19:02:41

A good nickname for Henry is Hank! Love it!

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Tue 16-Apr-13 19:09:40

Cut to the chase and call him Heinz!

Hal could be a good nn for a Henry. Only because of Henry VIII "bluff king Hal".

Hugo James - good name!

The others are all a bit over popular for me - the rest of the list reads like the register for most of the classes at our local school!! That may not be an issue for you though.

DottyboutDots Wed 17-Apr-13 12:58:50

We have a Hugo James and know another, ours were born 3 years ago than yours though. It was a name that i never thought would become popular and would always be quite singular. We were wrong! Still love it very much. A strong name. If we have another boy I've put Gregory on the list as I love the 'guh' sound now.
