This is DS born yesterday. DH likes Reuben, I like Alec. Neither of us like the others choice so we need help to come up with something we can both agree on. Here he is...

He's gorgeous. He looks like a Samuel to me.

He's beautiful - congrats flowers

I much prefer Alex to Alec. If you go with Alexander you'll have a choice of names such as Alex or Xander as another poster suggested.

He doesn't look like a Rueban!

Alexander Rueben and you can have Alex or Alec as a nickname. My husband is an Alexander and it's a fab name! I can't see him being called Rueben either - he would suit Benjamin more. He is so cute - congratulations!

Edward (Eddie)

...but actually, second thoughts he does look like a Sam (Samuel) he looks like he needs a soft sounding name!

How about James?

Congratulations, he's gorgeous.

I think Samuel suits him. I also think he could be a Reuben.

Sebastian, Joshua, Thomas, Edward?

Gorgeous! Historic day to be born grin you could always go with something historically political like Edward (Heath - who was pm when we joined the eu) or obviously Boris Nigel springs to mind if you're of the other camp grin huge congratulations, what a lovely thread amongst the many others sparked by events from yesterday, this surely has to be the best one! Hope it was a speedy happy delivery, and you're all doing well

Ps I do think he looks like a Reuben, and also like the Benjamin suggestion X

Alexander, nn Alec/x (I personally prefer Alec) would be cute smile

I agree with a previous poster, Samuel would be really cute as well.
What about Samuel Alec nn Alec?

Why not go with Heath then.

Sorry that should be Zenon

He's gorgeous. I want him. Squeeeeeeeeee. grin.
He looks like a Michael

An old work colleague had a DS yesterday too and called him Rueben so I think that name might suddenly be popular.
I suggest Lucien, Alexander, Theodore, or Nathaniel. Congratulations on your beautiful ds.

I prefer Reuben out of yours. He's adorable, looks like a James or Thomas to me.

Cineraria Fri 24-Jun-16 21:26:05

I could imagine him being called a short and unusual name. Emil, maybe or Jem (short forJeremiah/Jeremy).

I have 2 dd's, but my names for a boy would have been:
