Classic boys names

(12 Posts)

Having found out we are expecting a little boy (first baby) we have been trying to narrow down name options. I tend to like quite classic English boys names and DH is generally quite picky but doesn't suggest any names himself.

Ones we both like include:
Oliver
William
James
Noah
Lucas
Flynn

However there are issues with most of these (Noah - too biblical? James - I hate Jimmy, DH and his family would inevitably use this nickname. Lucas and William - already used by friends of ours which I'd rather avoid)

Other names I like but DH doesn't, or we can't use for various reasons:
Harry
Joshua
Alfie
Leo
Benjamin
Alexander
Rory

The only criterion we have is that the name can't start with B (last name starts with a J). I'd also prefer not to use a J name if possible as I don't like JJ but wouldn't rule it out. I'm not worried about popularity.

Are there any other names you can suggest that might appeal to us?

These are very classic:

Edward, Edmund, Albert, Arthur, Charles, George, David, Philip, Luke (much nicer than Lucas, I think), Mark, Matthew, Paul, Michael, Andrew, Stephen, Robert (sadly under-used), Gregory (or Gregor), Gilbert, Frederick, Hugh, Daniel, Joseph, Adam, Martin, Anthony, Thomas and - if you can cope with Js: John and Jonathan
