Ideas so far:

Ivan
Tristan
Dexter (I'm not keen, DH is)
Julian (DH really not keen)

Had loads of other ideas which DH ruled out. Currently nagging him to come up with some new suggestions! We both like Ivan and Tristan but want to at least consider some other ideas before we decide!

Julian is my favourite from your list.

Not that there's anything wrong with Julian or Quentin, but you know they're both Famous Five characters? You might get a few jokes about it.

I knew a Quentin who had a brother called Ford.

Logically if you have a Quentin you have 5 children. Therefore the next would be Sextus grin.

As soon as I saw your thread title I thought Tristan.

Sebastian goes well too, I think.

I'd rule out Julian because of the Famous Five connection.

Toby would work well.
I like Tristan the most from your list.

I think if one doesn't like it, you can't really choose it but I like Tristan best anyway!

I like Tristan. Ivan also- have you thought about Ivo? Sounds good with Quentin. Felix works well too.

I know twins who are Quinten (variant spelling) and Zachary.
Known to all as Quin and Zac.

Tristan goes best with Quentin i think.

Of the ones you mention Ivan and Tristan are my favourites. Never liked Dexter and it seems to have a very different feel. Julian is much less strong and much less interesting.

Of the other names mentioned I've and Idris I love, or Ludovic known as Ludo.

Poss a bit biased as I have an Ivan and Quentin and Ludo and Idris are all on the list for the next one...
