Middle name for Alexander

(8 Posts)

Hello! Expecting our first, a boy, in under three weeks (blimey...). We are pretty much set on Alexander for his first name. Current shortlist for middle name is:

Henry (current front runner)
Arthur
Edward
Joseph

Would be really grateful for views on which of the above goes best and also any suggestions you may have on alternatives. As you can probably tell our taste tends towards the traditional - I also quite like Old Testament names, though DH not so keen.

We're not thinking of using a family name (too political!) and can't use William, James or Daniel. Thanks!

Was going to suggest James, but think Edward goes well

Alexander George

Arthur
Then he can have initials AA... Like the author AA Milne! Random thought..

I like Joseph the best of your list.
