We like traditional English names, nothing too trendy or yooneek, the type of thing where they could be a judge or a bricklayer. Here's our shortlist, please order in preference, critique, or add suggestions of similar we might like. Thank you.
Christian
Daniel
Joseph
Michael
Thomas

Daniel. Nick and Dan when they're older. They're all lovely names though.

I concur with fourkids.

Without seeing your shortlist, just your title, I thought Daniel would go really well.

Was thinking of names that would go with Nichoals and came up with Alexander (Nic and Alex sounds lovely)
Josh
Zachary/Zac
Thomas
Daniel

and didn't realise they were on your list!

Not Michael - nice name but Mick/Mike and Nic doesn't sound nice
Not Christian - don't know why
I like Joseph but not Joe

Jonathon

Christian I'd avoid. Are you Christians can you expect DS to be (and remain) one? Might Christopher might be an alternative for you?

I like Joseph but not Joe That's what dh says, but that was my favourite!

Yes we are Christian, broadly - more in the cultural sense than religious (Christmas, Easter eggs, not regular church-goers). Good point I suppose that it's a thing as well as name, he might end up Buddhist or staunch atheist or something. I'm not too keen on Christopher though.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Joseph is great.

I know a little Seph (or maybe it's Seff, not seen it written down) but I don't know if that's a name that'd work as an nn in the UK.

deste Sun 29-Jan-17 21:20:18

Nicholas and Matthew.
