All lovely. I can see why it's hard to choose! I would probably go with James too.

Rory, or James/Jamie.

Not that big a fan of Alexander. It's too long. Alex is ok but it starts with 'alle'

Rory James sounds great.

Rory Or Alexander, James is very common (as in popular!)

Rory. Great name. I am partial to Ruairi instead but Rory is also lovely.

Alexander...I'm a bit meh on this, the nicknames Alex/Zander do nothing for me and the overall name too long and a bit dull (imo - sorry to Alexanders out there). Lex as a nickname...I could go for that though!
I have also taught quite a few Alexanders as well, so the popularity puts me off a bit.

James I much prefer to Alexander but it is popular. I have only taught one of these, mind, but I imagine that's a bit different in the UK.

We must be in sync - I have a Rory Patrick and a Leo Alexander and my husband is called James grin So my advice is... all three!
