Joseph and Charlie are my favourites although I also like Riley. My friend has just had a boy and named him Brodie which I also love.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with any if the other names on your list, they're just not to my taste. They are also very popular also Isaac and Matthew less so these days.

BessieBlount Mon 07-Dec-15 13:07:06

although not also.

LouisaRose31 Mon 07-Dec-15 13:09:04

Ah, Brodie is nice

AliciaMayEmory Mon 07-Dec-15 13:17:18

You can't go wrong with any of those names! People who dislike a particular name on your list will do so probably because they know of someone they don't like who has that name, but then others will know someone if the same name who is lovely/funny/kind etc. Riley, Isaac, Noah, Oliver and Charlie are very popular where I live with Charlie and Oliver being 3 or 4 to a class at our local school. I do love the name Edward. Could be Eddie/Ted as a nn.

LouisaRose31 Mon 07-Dec-15 13:19:31

Yes! I love the NN Teddy/Ted! It's lush

Sophronia Mon 07-Dec-15 13:23:46

Matthew, Joseph and Edward are my favourites.

BessieBlount Mon 07-Dec-15 13:28:25

Yes Ted/Teddy is nice but I know 5 under 7. It is very popular here.
The boys here used to be Oliver, Harry or George now they are mainly Edward, Thomas, Samuel or Lucas.

LouisaRose31 Mon 07-Dec-15 13:30:14

Yeah, it's so popular, but for a name like Teddy, I think it kinda has to be (for people to use it)

LadyMaryofDownt0n Mon 07-Dec-15 13:33:26

Teddy, I love it!

Also love Elliott & Noah.

Not keen on the rest for various reasons.

hobitty Mon 07-Dec-15 13:47:36

The only name I like from your list is Elliott.

Some of the others are very overused and will sound dated as they fall out of favour.

Artandco Mon 07-Dec-15 13:49:48

Edward . Strong traditional name, with plenty of nickname options. Ned, Ted, Teddy, Ed, Eddy

LouisaRose31 Mon 07-Dec-15 13:59:12

I do find Edward slightly awkward to say sad

LaurieLemons Mon 07-Dec-15 14:17:56

I like Noah, Isaac, Charlie and Joseph! If you don't like Edward, why not just use Teddy?

IoraRua Mon 07-Dec-15 14:19:03

Love Aidan, Dylan and Isaac.
Bar Alfie and Riley (bit cutesy) the others are all fine.

Artandco Mon 07-Dec-15 14:21:58

What about Edmund rather than Edward

Whoknewitcouldbeso Mon 07-Dec-15 14:22:01

I like Aiden.

Whoknewitcouldbeso Mon 07-Dec-15 14:22:18

And Elliot.

CakeRattleandRoll Mon 07-Dec-15 14:32:09

I have a 3yo Teddy (Edward) and can thoroughly recommend it! He gets called Bear a lot too, and has a lot of bear-themed clothes, books, puzzles, etc. Although he can also be the number 2 Blue Engine when he wants a change.

Really like Elliott, Matthew and Joseph too. Although not sure what you could use as nn for Elliott.

LouisaRose31 Mon 07-Dec-15 14:42:51

DP won't just have Teddy! I do like Edward, but something is making me now want to use it sad

celtictoast Mon 07-Dec-15 14:43:51

My favourites of your list in no particular order:


hobitty Mon 07-Dec-15 15:58:18

"Although not sure what you could use as nn for Elliott."

It's a beautiful name that doesn't need shortening imo.

hobitty Mon 07-Dec-15 16:00:02

In fact, Noah, Aidan, Dylan wouldn't need to be shortened either imo.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Mon 07-Dec-15 16:01:50

My favourites are Oliver, Matthew, Charlie and Joseph, really love Joe.

I don't like Alfie or Riley.
