Brother for Alexander

(17 Posts)

Am due DS2 soon and we're really really struggling to come up with names that we love as much as our DS1, Alexander. We don't yet shorten it to Alex and so to us Alexander seems to have something a bit special about it and like the fact that it's not a 'top 10' name.
We like traditional names, but nothing seems to be grabbing us at the moment and we find something not quite right with every boys name that could be contenders - argh!!
Please can you provide some suggestions for us in case we've missed an option?! Thanks.

Stay with the Russian: Nicholas, Peter, Boris, Gregory, Leon, Nikita?

Or other traditional (some also similar to Russian names): Stephen, Marcus, Robert, Jonathan, Michael, Piers, Benedict?

Thank you all so much, we've been mulling over these tonight and there is a good few we haven't considered previously so that's been helpful. Going to sleep on a shortlist and will let you know my thoughts on your suggestions tomorrow!! x
