Sorry if this has been done to death but I'm due to give birth to DS2 in 6 weeks and I still haven't fallen in love with a name. DS is Henry so I thought I might find inspiration from this.

Mine are:

John (DS' middle name) and
Arthur (I like this and think it goes but DH isn't keen)

I named my DS after my grandfather, it's a lovely, classic name, (and in the top 5 boys' names grin).

Bernard and Douglas (Doug). Grandfathers in law are/were Alfred (Alf) and Charles (Charlie).

Francis (goes by Frank, we were warned as kids to never call him Francis, I named DS2 Franklin in his honour)
Gerald (non-family people only call him Pastor though, I never heard anyone but his wife call him by his name, only his title)
