All nice except Callum!

All nice names, but I like Adam, George and Callum the most from your list.

George and Thomas are the best.

Conventional classics. I don't like Callum or Adam. James is my favourite.

Good safe names. Thomas is perhaps too popular, although Tom is a good name for young and old

The only one I don't like at all is Sebastian.

Adam and Benjamin are my favourites

From your OP I prefer George.

I'm hiding behind the parapet... to me Thomas, James, Sebastian, George, Adam, Benjamin are all very similar names. Very nice and inoffensive. Callum (hears rifles being loaded) is a different type of name. Having Callum in with this selection is like calling your children Rebecca, Hannah and Diamanta Bicardi Breezer...

I agree, a very mixed selection here.

Thomas, James, George, Adam - conventional to the point of boredom.

Callum and Sebastian - polar opposites on the 'poshness' scale as far as names go.

Benjamin's the only one I would personally consider, although I prefer Benji.

DH has scottish grandparents - hence the inclusion of Callum. I thought it was a traditional scots name, but agree it is odds a bit with the other names in the list

It is a traditional Scottish name, but has been widely adopted and is not in the same 'camp' as the other names on your list. That's why it was surprsising to read it there. Don't mean to be offensive about the name, but it just doesn't fit with your other choices.smile

I quite like Callum if it is shortened to Cal and you don't live in Scotland.

I must say doubleexpresso I misunderstood your comment about rifles being loaded and Callum. The name also reminds me of the Bernard McLaverty book about Cal the IRA man. But you are not inside my silly head.

No offence taken - I wanted honest opinions else I wouldn't have asked

I don't really like it either to be honest, but I think I'd have it as a middle name to keep DH happy

I love all of these names except adam and callum
