It's early days and it's bound to change but the shortlist so far is:

Edward (teddy)

I wanted to call baby Rupert but husband hates it so I think we will compromise and middle name will be Rupert (or William if we decide a different first name)

Any favourites?

Lovely names!
Edward/Teddy is my favourite.

Jacob and Edward, but not keen on Teddy.

Love Rupert!

Otherwise I'd pick Jacob or Edward (but I find Teddy too cutesy/beary).

Edward is my favourite from your list but Teddy is too cutsey for me too. Eddie seems a bit more robust.

After Edward I like Isaac.

Teddy is gorgeous for a baby, but past being a toddler I think it would sound odd and would choose Ted instead.

If we chose Edward, it would be Edward, with nn teddy during babyhood and then Edward/Eddie when he grows up. Thanks guys!

I like Jacob and Isaac. Not keen on Edward or Rupert.

I like William best, followed by Jacob

They're all nice names. I like Jacob and William the best.

Jacob and Issac by far, Id react with interest if anyone mentioned a male by this name (unusual, strong, individual) but Edwards and Williams are by he 1000s and so very rigid and unexciting.

Like them all.

Issac is my fave.

My favourite is Isaac 😊 I believe Jacob to be extremely popular but I do love it. William is a little unexciting to me, compared to the rest of your list. Edward is okay. Teddy is cute but trendy at the moment and I dislike the nn Eddie. Hope this helps. All reasonable names whichever you choose x

Edward Rupert = yummy, but not sure you should do Teddy AND Rupert, unless you really like bears!

William and Edward. Jacob and Isaac seem a bit "of the moment!"

Good luck!
