Alexander Frederick, or Frederick Alexander, would sound great smile

I like all of your short list, Sebastian is my favourite though.

I like Samuel and Sebastian best

I like Sebastian & Samuel best.

Definitely not Ralph.

Alexander/ Sebastian fine if you can live with the inevitable shortening to Alex and Seb/ Sebby

SisterChristina Tue 18-Mar-14 14:01:09

Same with Samuel and Frederick!

Two of my sons names are in your list, along with two of their middle names. grin I'm guessing we have similar tastes. What about Hugh, Peter, Edmund.

Alexander or Ralph

Thanks for the comments and suggestions. I think we've narrowed it down to Freddie or Sebastian but still being indecisive. hmm

Ok, it's good you've narrowed it down. Wait till he's born. I bet he will look more like one than the other. smile

Ralph is the name of a penis in the Judy Blume book 'forever'!! So I couldn't get last that!

Love the rest of your list though. Agree Freddie Alexander is my fave

I love your final 2

See if he's a Freddie or a Sebastian when he comes out grin

GillyBillyWilly Sun 23-Mar-14 15:02:47

Similar names to the ones on my list?
Finding boys names much harder than girls names!!!

Nataleejah Tue 25-Mar-14 15:46:18

Alexander for sure

fussychica Tue 25-Mar-14 17:27:18

Not Ralph.
