Hi all!

Expecting Ds2 who will be a brother to Edward. Middle names are already sorted (James William) and are not suitable as first names due to close family members having them. So, that just leaves us to decide between our top two names. Would welcome feedback,

Thomas James William
Alexander James William

Alexander James, partly because it's my brother's name and partly because IMO it's more interesting and versatile than Thomas.

ha! since when was there ever a unanimous response in baby names? lol

Alexander here too! And I think Alexander James William is a lovely combination

Going against popular opinion on here, definitely Thomas.

There is a reason that it's popular - it's a lovely name.

I don't mind Alexander, but think that Alex is just awful.

Alexander (and I like 'Alex' too) smile

Alexander for me - totally influenced by the fact that all of the Thomas' I've taught have been a bit 'challenging' to say the least, whereas my little Alex's have always been a delight. grin

I hope my highly scientific research has helped wink grin.

Both very popular, Thomas more so though. Definitely Alexander

Alexander definitely

Alexander and if he wants to be a bit different when older he can be called Xander.

Alexander. It is DH's name so I am biased. Good for NN's as well. Xander already mention but also Sandy, Alec & obvs Alex.

I find both Alex and Tom a little dull but also prefer Alexander over Thomas.
