Hello and Help!

I am due in 9 days with bub#2 and we cannot agree on a boys name. We already have a son - Harry Oliver. Urgently need some help and inspiration! Any suggestions welcome but we like more traditional names, not new, modern names.

Thanks so much  original.gif

Xavier, Sebastian, Quentin.

Try looking at different languages. That's how I got to Xavier and just turned the X into a Z because most people pronounce Xavier with a Z anyway.

Thanks for quick replies you three!
In our extended family we already have a William, 2 Michaels, Andrew, Samuel. I like all these names but they are out unfortunately.

Some of the names we have talked about but can't quite agree on are George, Frank, Louie, Edward, Angus...

We decided so easily with Harry but just seem so stumped this time around!
