DS's second name will be David, and he gets our two surnames.

Wondering about first name Robert - have some reasons for calling DS that, and some reasons against.

Suggestions for similar names that would go with David?
We also like Richard but it's too much of a mouthful with David.

Gavin is always a name that I would put in the Robert category for some reason.
