Zachary Alexander McColl is my favourite.

Zachary Alexander McColl (known as Zach)


Alexander Ray McColl

Not keen on the rest.

Can I point out that Zachary's initials would be ZAC whilst Alex's would be ARM? I know which is cooler ...

yama Mon 13-Jul-09 21:34:47

Sorry, clearly I messed that up. I have a 'Mc' name so you'd think I would know better.

Zachary's initials would be ZAM - still pretty cool.

yama Mon 13-Jul-09 21:36:01

Oh, and I don't actually say 'cool' in real life.

I'll get my coat.

I like Benjamin and Daniel best. Zachary is too trendy 2000s.

jkklpu Mon 13-Jul-09 21:43:20

Benjamin Alexander but, if you're Scottish, initials would be BAM[-pot]

hester Mon 13-Jul-09 21:43:35

I suppose it's also true that Ben and Daniel are too trendy 1980s/90s, but I still prefer them grin

I do like Zach but I'm a bit hesitant, I think it's great for a wee boy and a teenager but I find it harder to imagine a grown man called Zach IYKWIM? Maybe because it' a 'newer' name in the UK.

Oh and I'm Scottish too so yes Ben Alexander could be BAM(pot) but how often do you really use your middle name? DH's initials are JAM!

ben ray defo. love it

AtheneNoctua Mon 13-Jul-09 22:03:08

Zachary Alexander McColl

Also really like Benjamin, Daniel is a bit blah, and don't care for Ray.

pointydog Mon 13-Jul-09 22:10:16

They're all fine but I don't like Zachary meself

chellebelle Tue 14-Jul-09 10:59:00

Really like Zachary Alexander McColl!!! I have an Isaac so maybe I'm slightly biased, but he is an "Isaac" with the option of Zach when he's older.

Benjamin Alexander McColl
Daniel Alexander McColl

Is the name Ray after a family member? Its quite different from your other choices.

carmenelectra Tue 14-Jul-09 11:47:12

I prefer Daniel Alexander

PlumpRumpSoggyBaps Tue 14-Jul-09 12:00:12

Benjamin Alexander, definitely.

Although might be prejudiced as ds2 was going to be Benjamin but ended up as Alexander Benedict.

So obviously a fab name.

I think that Benjamin Alexander McColl sounds good. It flows nicely. smile
