We are struggling with a boys name shortlist. Brother for Fraser. Husband has rejected nearly everything I've suggested. My current favourite is Edward but I wonder if it's a bit boring. James is the likely middle name and we have a three syllable Mc surname.

I would welcome thoughts and suggestions? Thank you.

Definitely Edward smile

Edmund is slightly more unusual though if you want that.

Edward or Gabriel. Marcus is a bit stuffy n old fashioned imo.

I was going to say Marcus until I say his brother is Fraser - in which case I think Gabriel goes better.

Marcus is ds2's middle name, so I may be biased, but love it. Gabriel would be my preferred choice if there would ever be a ds3. Both beautiful, strong, classic names. Don't like Edward though. It sounds a bit Enid Blyton to me, but I don't know why.

Good names. I think you really need to have four boys so you can use them all.

Marcus McSurname might be a bit much.

I would say Edward.

Miles also comes to mind

I love them all, but Gabriel is the best.

Definitely Gabriel. Edward is nice enough but very "safe". Although I love nn Ted and like nn Ed. Marcus is completely meh. Reminds me of a dull, stuffy school teacher.

I think Edward is gorgeous! Classic with good nn potential for when he's older.
