Argh, am finding it so difficult naming this poor boy! We loved Sebastian so much the first time round we didn't really even have a shortlist. Now I'm expecting another boy and I just am stuck!

We do like Elliott, William, Thomas and I love Greyson but DH hates it but aside from those?

My mother in law keeps banging on that we must choose another long name that can be shortened so 'it's fair'

Anyone got anything inspirational?! confused

Nonsense that sibling names need to have the same number of syllables - ignore MIL! grin

We also have a Sebastian and struggling to name his brother. Our list is;

Arthur
Dominic
Nathaniel
Alexander
Elliot
Christian
Nicholas
Jonathan

But we don't love any of them in the way we loved Sebastian. I'm starting to think we might just go with a top ten name and be done with it as I love Oscar and Joshua and it's their popularity that has made me think no.

Edward, Matthias, Gregory, Lucian, Jonah, Isaiah?

Madness suggesting that it has to be another long name though!

Thanks all, sorry didn't manage to get back on here yesterday. The afore mentioned Sebastian is not coping well with school nursery start confused

Lots of good suggestions thank you. I like Alexander but I used to work with an Alex for years who was such a nobber that I can't bring myself to use it!

We also like Benjamin and Benedict but our surname begins with J so not initials I want to saddle my son with!

The Sebastian I know has a big brother called Thomas.

How about:
Nathaniel
Jonathan
Matthew
Elijah
Frederick

From the names you've said you like, I think Joshua and Elliott are quite lovely. Best of luck smile
