James and Henry have a brother arriving soon. Shortlist is:


Middle name will be a family name probably don't know which one. We are going round in circles with the first name and only have 6 weeks left.

Came on to suggest Edward and it's one of your choices.

Although George works well too.

I was going to say George. Do you shorten James or Henry? Art is a nice nn if so.

Edward is also my first suggestion.

Alexander, William or Samuel are in the same ilk

No we don't shorten James or Henry.

We considered Alexander but it would definitely become Alex (don't like sandy or xander) and alex just seems.... Meh....

Edward is currently the favourite.

Arthur is a bit "out there" (not even top 100 in the country we live in although I know it's reasonably high in England)

James and Henry are so safe that Arthur is a bit crazy for us although we like it.

George... Not sure if it's too similar to James and also do they sound too obviously Royal as a threesome set?

Edward is the default leader at the moment then.

Alexander or Oliver or Benjamin

Sounds like a vacuum cleaner collection!

All good, Edward is my favourite of those 3.

Edward sounds just as royal as George BTW. There have been 8 King Edwards, after all. And there's the mythical King Arthur too.

On a less serious note, James, Henry and Edward are 3 of the main engines in Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends. They each get a line in the theme song.

All 3 are nice and 'go' with Jamed and Henry. Might just be a matter of waiting until he's born and seeing which name out of the 3 suits him best?

Another vote for Edward

George. I thought George before I clicked on the thread and saw it was on your short list.

BeStrongAndCourageous Sun 14-Feb-16 11:16:00

Yep, before I even saw your list I thought "George. James' and Henry's brother is clearly George."

Thanks everyone so not a clear winner. Why is naming a human so hard! At least it's a boy, we had NO girls names so this is easier anyway grin

OhYouLuckyDuck Sun 14-Feb-16 12:55:22

George can be used for a girl if the scan is wrong!

RJnomore1 Sun 14-Feb-16 12:57:01

Thomas for me too!

FireDay Sun 14-Feb-16 12:59:08

Not keen on Thomas (for no good reason it's a nice name just not for me)

Mouseinahole Sun 14-Feb-16 13:33:53

I came to say Edward or George of which Edward is my favourite smile
