Would need a middle name too, DH is Charles.

Be kind!!grin

Max or George for me!
Reuben many like but I'm never certain. Isaac becoming very popular but lovely.
Henry is ok.
Harry - he would be one of about 12 in his class at school!

Great names!

My favourites from your list are Max, George, Isaac and Harry.

I'm slightly less keen on Reuben and not overly keen on Henry.

Charles is a great middle name.

I know they're only little for a short time but can't imagine a baby called Reuben or Isaac.

Would George William be too regal??

Max - very common
George - nice, not that common, good 'fitting in everywhere' kind of name
Reuben - have always liked, gone off a bit lately for no particularly reason
Isaac - pretty popular but I still like it
Henry - no, either 'cute' or too grown up
Harry - no

Thanks people!

I have listed them in order of preference, mine and Dh's, Max and George ar the only ones he seems that keen on!

Now, if we chose Max, should it be, just Max, Maxwell, Maximus, or Maxim??smile
