Really struggling with a name for DS2. We absolutely love DS1's name: Jasper, and can't think of anything else we like as much for DS2.

Ideas so far are: Alistair, Otis, Austin, Rory, Gregory, Rigby.

Would appreciate any opinions on those/ suggestions for alternatives. Criteria: must be more than one syllable & not too common. Thanks

What about another gem / stone name?
Malachite
Onyx
Garnet
Flint (one syllable but looks more)

Jasper & Quentin
Jasper & Marcus

Thanks everyone. I quite like Tristan, but not sure about the meaning 'noise or sorrowful'.

Love Monty & Theo but DH is a flat no on those.

Also quite like Orlando & Orson but not sure how I'd feel about shouting them across the playground....bit pretentious maybe?

Not sure I'm quite up for a stone name theme, might have been tempted by Ruby for a girl though! I can't help but see Garnet as a girls name too.

Lots of people have sonly which is why I'd avoid having a second with animal connotations- for me Felix & Rex fall into this category. It doesn't bother me that people say 'oh my dogs called Jasper', but don't want people thinking it's a theme!

Yes shouting Jasper and Orlando might be a bit much!

How about:

Gregor
