We've whittled down to three names at the moment.
Stanley Thomas
Thomas Stanley
Alexander James

Our surname is a one syllable name, hence the longer names

Thanks in advance

First choice for me would be Alexander James, then Thomas Stanley.

I think Thomas Stanley, but it's a close call between that and Alexander James smile

I like Alexander James!

Thomas Stanley is the name I want for my baby boy, if I ever have one. Good choice smile

Alexander is my favourite of your first names, but James always seems to come up as a middle name so I'd use Thomas or Stanley as middle name instead.

Alexander James is my favourite.

I don't like the name Stanley at all I'm afraid!

I was about to say Alexander James but then I realised it was the Blur bassist/ Chipping Norton cheesemaker.

So maybe Thomas Stanley?

I know Stanley is fashionable but it still sounds a bit "old man" to me as a first name (quite nice as a middle name though), whereas Alexander, Thomas and James are all timeless.

Alexander-lovely name and so many choices for shortenings.

Thomas Stanley

Will you shorten to Alex, Stan, Tom though, even with a one syllable surname?

Stanley Thomas, I know Alexander is popular on mm but I really don't like it.

Agree that Thomas/Tom and Alex are so so popular already... I also know quite a few girls called Alex (Alexandra).
