Found out I'm having another boy and as I have two already it makes it more difficult to think a name I like.
Current shortlist is:
Alexander
Benedict
Sebastian
Reuben
Nathaniel
Franklin
Max

My favourites are Alexander and Sebastian. Not keen on Benedict or Franklin.

Love Alexander, Sebastian and Nathaniel.

Love Alexander and Sebastian. Alexander is my son's middle name after my grandad, great name!

Oriunda Mon 03-Feb-14 17:12:48

Alexander my favourite
Sebastian and Max also good

None are really to my taste, but I'd pick Benedict.

Bowlersarm Mon 03-Feb-14 17:35:35

Alexander, Sebastian or Nathaniel.

Lovely apart from Franklin.

pinkandsparklytoo Mon 03-Feb-14 17:38:43

Yes! I will have to remind DH that my choices are better grin We already have a Joshua and a Tobias.

Love Alexander, Benedict and Reuben. Gorgeous names!

Rhubarbgarden Mon 03-Feb-14 18:39:35

Sebastian or Benedict.

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Mon 03-Feb-14 18:45:39

Reuben or Nathaniel for me smile.

Quite like Alexander & Max too.

Sebastian, Benedict & Franklin are a little too fussy IMHO.

I love Max.

caz05 Mon 03-Feb-14 19:34:44

Reuben or max

I have a 4 year old Reuben. Was a family name and I still love it.

I also like Nathaniel and Sebastian

UriGeller Mon 03-Feb-14 20:28:56

I love Alexander but I think Reuben goes really well with your other boys names.

Love Benedict and Sebastian.

MarthasHarbour Mon 03-Feb-14 20:30:04

We are going for Alexander if we have a boy so i am all embracing the name! grin

I know two Franklins and they are both Mexican. Have no idea why that would be a popular name in Mexico.

HeatherCatherine82 Mon 03-Feb-14 21:31:30

Beautiful names! smile

My faves are Alexander, Benedict and Sebastian.

Joshua and Tobias are lovely too!

Good luck xx

Alexander has always been my top boys name but neither of my boys looked like one when they were born. Also DH doesn't particularly love it. Maybe this time it will look like an Alexander.

BrunoBrookesDinedAlone Mon 03-Feb-14 22:22:17

Alexander is great, but it's very popular and because of that definitely the most 'vanilla' of your list...

I'd go for Sebastian, Max, (Maxim?), Nathaniel - in that order.

Don't like Franklin - makes me think of horrid frozen explorer corpses.

Benedict has teasing potential.

Reuben ok!

Max, Alexander and Sebastian are all on my shortlist, I can't decide between them although think that Max sounds better with a longer surname. Do you like the nicknames for Alexander and Sebastian?

Love Reuben and Max. Sebastian, Alexander and Nathaniel are alright, don't like Benedict or Franklin

ZenNudist Tue 04-Feb-14 04:44:45

You share my taste. Apart from franklin love all( Esp Tobias! Dh vetoed this for ds)

How about Francis instead of franklin?

Sebastian Tobias & Joshua gets my vote smile
