I love the name Patrick but not Paddy and Alex but not Alexander? Which of the above combinations do you prefer?

Sister is called Isla. Any other suggestions greatly received.

Many thanks 😊

Alexander, I'm not keen on Patrick at all

Alexander. It's a great name. I don't like Patrick.

Alexander Patrick for me...

Patrick, it's less popular than Alexander

Patrick every time.

Patrick. Or Alec instead of Alex.

Alexander Patrick

You could call him xander for short

Patrick Alistair.

But Alistair Patrick is also lovely.

ClaudiaJean2016 Sun 30-Oct-16 20:37:27

I like Patrick Alexander

NavyandWhite Sun 30-Oct-16 20:39:43

So you wouldn't call him Alexander just Alex?

I think Patrick and Isla are better suited than Isla and Alex.

I love both names (both were on our shortlist along with Alistair) but Patrick is a lot more unusual, if that's a consideration. I slightly regret not choosing it since the name we went with is very popular.

I'm not so keen on the nicknames but I'm not sure a nickname is inevitable - I've worked with a few and they all went by Patrick rather than Paddy or Pat.

I love Patrick (and Paddy). I also prefer Alastair to Alexander.

I would say Patrick Alexander...

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 30-Oct-16 20:44:14

Patrick Alexander
Patrick Zander

Alistair Patrick would be my favourite combination. Patrick Alistair second to that.

I really like all of the names.

Depends on initial too. You could have an APT or PAM

Patrick is a lovely name, though I hate all NNs for it.

TheSteveMilliband Sun 30-Oct-16 21:15:33

We went for Patrick as a middle name for exactly that reason (didn't like shortened versions- especially as someone from Ireland told me it can be shortened to podge) but actually unless you're in Ireland probably unlikely to be shortened anyway. I slightly regret not using it as a first name now, really suits ds. Love Alistair too (have one). Alex quite popular, but lovely, depends if that matters to you.

Alex Patrick smile

Alistair Patrick, or Alexander Patrick.

Patrick Alistair is a really handsome name
