Middle name for William

Narrowed down name choices for DS3 to William James or William Noah. I know for many people these are all far too popular but we like and actually agree on both options (a bloody miracle) and aren't too worried about popularity.

Which do you prefer? Last name similar to Johnstone.

Any other middle name suggestions welcome but we have considered a LOT of names and at least one of us has ruled out most of them. My favourite was probably Jude but DH was having none of it.

I like Arthur, George and Alexander (royal names generally good in my book) but all have already been vetoed.

I was going to suggest James before I'd even clicked in the thread. I think they go really nicely.

Sorry, She, didn't mean to be your echo! I meant to write that I totally agree it flows better.

William Frederick or William Philipp would be pretty nice imo.

But William James is pretty nice as well...

Looks like William James is the clear winner out of our two options. It's my favourite, William Noah is DH's preferred option but he's happy with either.

I like William Jacob, might try that one on him later, but think I still prefer James.

I have a William and a James. Both great names that I still love 10 and 15 years down the line. Neither has dated. I think Noah might.
