So here is our shortlist...

Edward (Teddy or Test for every day use)
William (Bill)

Struggling to narrow it down now...

Middle name will be Douglas though so we're half there!

So baby name jury... which do you prefer?!

*Ted...not Test!

Only1scoop Tue 16-Dec-14 09:45:38

I like Douglas

shakemysilliesout Tue 16-Dec-14 09:47:15

I like all except Toby My fav is William because I love nickname bill.

I don't like Toby- no good reason for this, I just don't.

shakemysilliesout Tue 16-Dec-14 09:48:32

Teddy seems very of the moment.

Rosedust Tue 16-Dec-14 09:49:42

Yep its Bill that pulled us towards William. I'm just struggling to picture a baby Bill...

We have a Bill. He's the coolest! Would almost definitely have gone with Ted for number 2 if it weren't for the whole 'Bill & Ted' thing.

Benjamin or Edward, but I would probably use the nickname Eddie rather than Teddy or Ted
Really really really dislike William, especially with the nickname Bill, Will would be much nicer

I love Edward and Teddy is adorable for a little boy

Rosedust Tue 16-Dec-14 09:51:45

Thanks everyone - Edward does give him lots of options for when he is older smile

InanimateCarbonRod Tue 16-Dec-14 09:51:49

I like Edward - wouldn't shorten it though. It's a classic masculine name but Ted or Teddy makes it a bit .. mushy for want of a better term.

HenriettaTurkey Tue 16-Dec-14 09:52:23

William also gives loads of options: Bill, Billy, Will, Liam...

Rosedust Tue 16-Dec-14 09:55:17

Yep, Will is nice too smile

Bill is a strange name for anyone under 40.

Teddy is very cute.

Sophronia Tue 16-Dec-14 10:58:48

William Douglas. I really like Bill / Billy as a nickname.

manicinsomniac Tue 16-Dec-14 11:50:32

All lovely but William and Toby are my favourites

Bowlersarm Tue 16-Dec-14 11:53:11

Hate Bill. (Love Will)

The rest are fine; my favourites are Edward nn Teddy, or Toby.

Fallingovercliffs Tue 16-Dec-14 12:23:38

I don't like Bill but I love William. Benjamin is bound to be shortened to Ben which is a name I'm a bit sick of. Otherwise I like your choices, including the nicknames for Edward.

HenriettaTurkey Tue 16-Dec-14 12:24:29

I think Benjamin, William & Edward go best with Douglas; Toby & Max less so.

I also love Samuel & Theodore with Douglas (just saying!)

I like Max, Benjamin and William best, but don't like Bill. Lovely list, not often I like all the choices on offer!

Rosedust Tue 16-Dec-14 13:36:01

Thanks everyone - think we'll stick the list to the fridge to help us focus!

Smugnogplease Tue 16-Dec-14 13:40:00

Toby is a dogs name IMO, I love Douglas from your list, the others a a bit over used for me

Guin1 Tue 16-Dec-14 14:59:54

Love Edward/Teddy/Ted, but very biased as I have a gorgeous 2yo Teddy (Edward). There is also the bonus nn of Bear, which he just loves, along with any bear-themed songs, books, toys, TV, clothes - and there are LOTS!

Also really like Toby.
