Just discovered we are expecting dc3! What do you think of my boys list?

Our surname is three letters and the same as Tea, but ends with an E and starts with an L.

This makes some names impossible (think Riley, finley, Julie)

So my boys list is:

George
Thomas
Benjamin
Theo
Nathan (with Nate as nn)
Elliot

Dh has come up with Liam which I think is frankly ridiculous with our surname.

I like full names and would love any different suggestions which go with our awkward surname.

James
Matthew
Jacob
Edward
Aidan
Tristan
Ellis
Adam
David
Frederick
Ryan

I love Ted as a nn so Edward should be on my list but dh hates.

Thats why I thought Theo. Do you think Theo goes with our surname?

Tristan was on the boys list with dd1 but I think its gone now. James is a family name so no can do, as is Ryan.

Love George and Thomas.

What about Daniel or Matthew?

If it's something like Lee, then I suggest a 2 syllable unshortenable name like

Christian
Reuben
Quentin
Ethan

I like Nathan.

Reuben is a favourite of mine but dh says two Jewish.

I think 2 syllable unshortenable is a good idea though
