Not a fan of either tbh

Edmund is a much more classic name.

Would you consider Edward? Or James?

Not keen on Edmund or Hayden, sorry OP.

Edmund James. Hayden James doesn't flow nicely. I prefer just James.

James has to be the middle name smile we don't like Edward as much, unfortunately!

Not Hayden

Edmund James is lovely smile

But Hayden James is fabulous. It does remind me a bit of Jayden/Jaydin etc. But it's a lovely classic smile!

Hayden, Kayden, Jaiden, Shaiden... nope.

I worked with an utter twat called Edmund. So no. Edgar though, yes!!!

I like Hayden. What about Holden?

KoalaDownUnder Sun 12-Mar-17 01:59:10

Edmund. Hayden is awful.

SuperBeagle Sun 12-Mar-17 02:39:43

Edmund James is lovely. smile

Please don't go with Holden. It's so reminiscent of that whiny prat from The Catcher in the Rye. The miserable turnip still makes me mad years after reading it!

ElizaDontlittle Sun 12-Mar-17 02:57:15

Edmund - tho personally I prefer Edward - but Edmund is a lovely, classic, Chronicles of Narnia name.

Congratulations OP.

nursebickypegs Sun 12-Mar-17 04:46:14

@SuperBeagle omg I'm so pleased someone else hates catcher in the rye! I hate holden!!!

Susiethetortoiseshellcat Sun 12-Mar-17 05:53:13

Hayden James is lovely.

Jooni Sun 12-Mar-17 07:14:00

Definitely Edmund! Lovely name.

I love Edmund. Hayden seems like a surname to me, or falls into the Aiden, Jayden, Kayden bracket which I don't like.

If you like Hayden, what about:

Wolpertinger Sun 12-Mar-17 09:47:53

Edmund and Hayden are both names with strong class connotations. Edmund v differently to Hayden.

Obvs if you like them, you can do what you want, and social class and assumptions are just forms of prejudice - but they sound on the page like children from 2 completely different families.
