What do you think of James or Lucian/Lucien (loo-see-an as opposed to looshun)?

Have a one-syllable surname starting with H

Thanks smile

Like both.

Lucian James?

See DH is worried Lucian is a bit too camp for his son grin but I think Lucian James sounds better than James Lucian?

I love Lucian (as you pronounce it)!

Lucian James is much nicer than the other way round.

Lucian is cool!

James is ok, but a little unimaginative.

I like both too Lucian James sounds best.Not camp at all v stylish and individual without being poncey

Thanks for comments. DH says 'he won't thank you for it' hmm

I just think James isn't really that unique, I don't dislike it but I have a few in my family already and also although it's classic it's a bit forgettable...

but if anyone thinks James is better please let me know or if anyone hates Lucian also feel free to slate it grin

I love Lucian/ Lucien. I don't think it is camp at all. James is okay but quite dull (imo) and I really dislike Jamie.

I am biased because i love the name James. I do have to tentatively agree that Lucian sounds a bit camp. But Lucian James does sound better than James Lucian.

Well it didn't do Freud any harm did it. Lucian is a very good name

Love Lucian. Was my choice for DD2 if had been a boy although my partner never liked it I have to say.
