What is his first name?

It would depend entirely on the first name- some just don't go together.

(PS if you are only using it as a middle name could you not ask the relative concerned and use Alexander anyway?)

Pffft. Just use Alexander, no need to ask permission. Especially for a middle name. Do you even need to tell them he has a middle name? Not everyone does.

First name is going to be Leo and definately can't use Alexander because when I say it's in the family... It's his brothers 2nd middle name! Thanks for suggestions so far, will get thinking cap on. Any more?

My DS is Alessandro Valentino, in English, Alexander Valentine. We use Valentino, Tino for short. One of his Greek aunties always calls him Constantino

So it's you yourself who has already used Alexander? grin
So where's the problem? No less a person than HM The Queen has used the same name for two of her children: Andrew Albert Christian Edward and Edward Antony Richard Louis grin

Four syllables, hmmm. OK, here's a few more:

Emmanuel
Cornelius
Nicodemus
