We have plenty of time I know but starting to think we won't settle on a name for our baby boy.

Thoughts on the following would be much appreciated and any similar suggestions.

Alexander
Edward
Sebastian
Joseph
Andrew
Jacob

Andrew!! Love it, not heard of a baby Andrew for so so long

I like jacob the best.

Andrew is imo very dated 70s/80s name.

Edward and Sebastian are abit poncy (sorry)

Joseph is boring

Alexander is ok

I vote Sebastien.

I'll throw in Austin, Quentin and Tristan.

Alexander love it, it's my DS middle name. Lots of nn to pick from, Alex, xander, lex.

Edward, like it again a couple of nn
to choose from.

Sebastian I like it.

Joseph OK a bit boring.

Andrew don't hear it very often my cousin is Andrew he's nearly 30. Imo a good solid name prefer nn Drew over Andy.

Jacob ok but very popular.

Other names to consider, Seth, Robert, Ezekiel.

Andrew! Very underused nowadays.

Edward (love Eddie as a nn)
Or Alexander at a push (I like both Alex and Xander as nn's)

Please God not Andrew!

Love Edward and Andrew, and quite like Joseph.

Love Sebastian

Sophronia has everything I'd suggest (in particular Jonathan and Nicholas)

OreoHeaven Sun 10-Apr-16 19:43:24

I prefer Drew over Andrew.

BertrandRussell Sun 10-Apr-16 19:45:26

Edwqrd is a brilliant name . And there are so many shortenings

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 10-Apr-16 19:45:29

I'd go for Andrew nn Drew. So unusual now. Or Joseph because I love Joe.

Alexander and Sebastian are lovely.

Robert
Steven
Robin

If my ds's name hadn't been preordained, he would have been Edward. Ned for short.

Andrew is a great underused classic these days - I like it.

I also like Sebastian, Quentin, Austin and Jonathan.

There are children called all of these things at my kids school - except Sebastian and that's my favourite.
