Samuel. And don't shorten it.

I love them both and if we had another boy they would be the two names I'd be choosing from. Are either of them family names?

I prefer Daniel.

Samuel - I may be biased though as I have one.

Daniel as I prefer Dan/Danny and also there were 4 Sams in my class at school (and 4 Bens) so for me Sam will forever feel overused.

Samuel. Though also biased for same reason as probably smile

Both lovely names with nice NN options.
I know less Daniels so I'd sway towards Daniel.

Samuel - I also have one grin. We don't shorten his name

Both names are lovely. Maybe pick the less common name?

Samuel. I only know one and I know lots of Daniels.

Definitely Daniel. It is the best boy's name ever.

Daniel. But I always sing the Elton John song when I hear it. grin Don't like Samuel as it always sounds like the child has been naughty when they are called by the full name.

Samuel ( have one age 5) both lovely though
