I actually like all of your names. I have a Dylan so that would obviously be my favourite but I also love Elliot (this has been vetoed by my hubby for baby number 2 if it's a boy).

Would Louis be pronounced Louie? If so, I would spell it Louie as otherwise he may get called Lewis.

My favourites are Lewis, Louis and Reuben.

Noah has been very popular for a while and there are a lot of them, so I wouldn't use that.

I'm not keen on Dylan or Elliot.

William is a bit ordinary, and I'm not keen on Billy.

William or Noah.

William (Billy)

@Kazzawazza69, I do like Louie, but wouldn't it be misspelled?

Thank you smile seems like William (Billy) is the best.

Personally I'd pick Dylan or Aidan.

William or Elliot

I like them all!

At a push I would say I like Reuben the best and Aidan the least but not much in it.

William but not Billy

I have a William who since secondary school has been called Will or Bill by his friends but was always William up until then.

Don't like Elliot and Reuben , prefer Louis to Lewis and like William but not Billy . I would spell Louis as you did not Louie . Dylan and Noah are lovely but very popular .

William, Lewis or Louis.

William (nickname Will not Billy) or Reuben

Alyx80 Mon 13-Mar-17 14:42:48

Elliot, Noah or Reuben. William is a bit dull sorry.

KanyeWesticle Mon 13-Mar-17 14:56:38

William (All/any of the nn are great) or Reuben (Ben's cute, Roo is adorable!)

LittleL232 Mon 13-Mar-17 14:59:06

I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. I love Reuben best, purely because i think Roo is so cute as a nickname.
