Help! Really struggling with DS2 name.
DS1 name begins with J (we both loved it long before knowing we were having a boy) so would prefer to avoid J-names.

I have scoured the baby name stats for years and still have yet to find one I love. Nothing too trendy and willing to re-consider 'classics'. It can't be an adjective due to our surname!

Currently on the shortlist:
Arthur (which I love but DH has nixed)
Lysander - not sure it feels 'natural' to me to say it
Auberon
Albion
Ezra - bit hipster?
Stellan
Adriel
Etienne - would feel a bit poncey as neither of us are French
Ptolemy - always thought this was a great name but am shying away from actually using it
Orion - too hippyish with our surname
We think the default would probably be Alexander. I do really like the name but it's fairly common and we have a couple of friends called Alex.

I love Stellan- it was on our shortlist for DS. What about Steffan as an alternative?

How do you pronounce ptolmey?

What about Aubrey, iris, felix, hudson, shilo, asher, zephan, levi, franklyn

Meant so say idris

mulch it's pronounced "tollermee" or thereabouts

Stellan is great but I associate it more with a hulking great man than a baby (although could get used to it) and am worried about 'stella' nicknames...

If this bump had been blue we were having Edwin.

Only like Arthur out of the list.

Arthur's so common now. It's going to the the Matthew or Jack of this generation.
