Josiah is such a gorgeous name. You have a great list for your 2nd

Logan - ok
Jason - ok
Liam - love
Daniel - love - a total classic
Eli - one of my favourite names, I adore it. Favourite
Jared - don’t like the sound of it
Joel - potentially too similar?
Jonas - same as above
Theodore - love this name
Jamison - I only know of it as a surname. Not keen
Milo - adore it - joint favourite
Lewis - adore it

I think you’ve got an excellent list there and I think you should stick with one of those names but I’ll make some extra suggestions below just incase

I think Jared, Joel and Eli 'go' best with Josiah.

NoSauce Fri 06-Dec-19 19:14:21

Elijah nn Eli would go. Not keen on the others.

I love Eli and Theodore

Leopardprintboots Fri 06-Dec-19 19:46:18

I love Eli in its own right as a name, not so much Elijah though I like both

Daniel

I like eli and Daniel. What about Jonah?

Eli "goes" the best, in my opinion, and it is a lovely name, but out of your list - if you hadn't mentioned wanting to pick something to go with your ds1's name - I'd say Daniel is my favourite.

Eli

Eli never looks like a full name to me. Prefer Elias. It's nice though.
Daniel is great, can't go wrong with a Daniel.

Both go well with Josiah. Your J names are too samey, Logan and Liam I really dislike.

Theodore Milo and Lewis are all good (Theodore/Theo a bit popular just now) but I don't think they sit as well with Josiah

TatianaLarina Sat 07-Dec-19 11:19:48

Like Theodore and Milo.

EugeniaGrace Sat 07-Dec-19 11:29:36

My favourites are Theodore, Daniel and Eli.

Liam would be better as a shortened form of William (Liam on it’s own feels like to much of a nickname alongside Josiah which I find quote formal). The one starting with J while I’ve named in themselves, sound to similar to Josiah.

I know a little Eli and he’s the coolest little chap ever - made me love the name even more

BackforGood Sat 07-Dec-19 17:02:58

I was going to say exactly the same as @MountainPeakGeek grin

Personally, I think life is a LOT easier if you don't have the same initial as your sibling - so I'd rule out all the names you've got that start with a 'J'

Logan - fine
Jason - very dated
Liam - just think of Gallagher
Daniel - fine
Eli - love
Jared - dislike
Joel- dislike
Jonas - like but prefer Jonah
Theodore - cute nicknames but don’t like the full name
Jamison- strongly dislike
Milo - cute
Lewis - don’t like but I like Louis

BingThing Sun 08-Dec-19 04:58:37

I like -
Eli
Theodore
Milo
But above comment is correct Theo is really popular - I have one and I regret it a little bit to be honest - although I do love the name. We nearly chose Elias, Elijah & Asa if that helps.

fantasmasgoria1 Sun 08-Dec-19 05:58:42

Logan or milo.

lowlandLucky Sun 08-Dec-19 09:31:55

Josiah and Daniel match

lowlandLucky Sun 08-Dec-19 09:33:23

Ishmael would also match
