Nathaniel is my favourite, followed by Nicholas.

But I really like all of them.

Really like all of them, probably Michael the least. Nicholas is a great name but am not overly keen on Nick.

Jooni Thu 26-Jan-17 17:46:59

Nathaniel is my favourite, then Nicholas and Benjamin.

I like them all.

I know a zillion Bens though so it depends if you. Ind how popular the name is.

Michael may become Mike which isn't the best nn.

Pipilangstrumpf Thu 26-Jan-17 18:05:51

I really like Reuben and Nicholas.

I'd also avoid Benjamin as he may end up as Ben of which there are loads already.

Sophronia Thu 26-Jan-17 18:28:00

Michael or Nicholas!

Michael or Benjamin.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Thu 26-Jan-17 19:36:50

Nicholas - Nick, Nico fabulous names.

Not Reuben or Michael

TempsPerdu Thu 26-Jan-17 19:37:18

Nicholas would be my pick, with nn Nico - lovely name and not too common right now. Second choice would be Nathaniel.

Swearwolf Thu 26-Jan-17 19:38:54

Nathaniel or Reuben, not keen on any of the others. Reuben can also be shortened to Ben and is much nicer than Benjamin!

Dontrocktheboat Thu 26-Jan-17 19:40:06

Nathaniel - by a mile - then Reuben then Nicholas.

Benjamin and Michael are a little dull.

17caterpillars1mouse Thu 26-Jan-17 19:40:51

Benjamin, Reuben or Nicolas

strawberrypenguin Thu 26-Jan-17 19:41:21

Reuben I had it on my list but DH vetoed it

NameChange30 Thu 26-Jan-17 19:43:11

I like Nathaniel (Nat for short) and Reuben who could be Ruby or Ben.

Ben and Nick are both very popular and a bit boring, but nice enough.

Not a fan of Michael/Mike.

I'd pick the one that I like the shortened version of as its like to be shortened eventually.
