Hi, this is my 1st post so hope it is ok!

Me and DW have just got the great news that we are expecting a boy and we have managed to narrow the name list down a bit, so I just wanted your opinions on them and also if you can think of any others we may have missed.

We are thinking of Biblical/traditional names that are fairly common (so nothing to 'out there'.

The shortlist names currently are -

Jacob
Joshua
Alexander

Our surname starts with an H so nothing beginning with H if you have any other suggestions.

Thanks

Recent names I've seen were:

Jesse
Zachary
Benjamin
Noah
Jonah
Caleb
Theodore (not a biblical name per se but it means gift from God)

I also love the name Joshua & it's also on my short list.

Think we're calling our little boy Reuben, it is a biblical name although not one of the more popular ones. Also means "behold a son" not sure if you care about meanings but we think that's a lovely meaning for our first child smile
