Brother for John

I have a John, if I like the names Elijah and Abel what other names might I like?

Ideally not in the top 100 of UK baby names (John is no 150)

I have a John too, great choice

Dc2 was a dd but our boy list was:
Patrick (quite popular, 125 this year i think)
Paul (400ish and falling)
Simon or Simeon (neither popular)

Levi and Eli we liked but they didn't go with our surname

😏

not sure what the face is for. Names like John, Christopher, and Abel are reminiscent of an older generation, at least for me. It was a genuine suggestion as a way to find names OP will like with a similar feel, not an insult.

The names you like are quite traditional, almost fitting of gentleman 70 years old, have you considered looking at name lists from the 50's?

John was a family name which is why we chose it

I like it. It's a good, strong and straightforward name.

I like Nathaniel and Gabriel with John, but maybe too popular for you, so
